For those who don’t know much about the Philip Stein watch company, it’s also a safe bet that they don’t know much about Mr. Stein himself. It’s also likely that even people who own one of these fine watches and know a lot about them and the company don’t know that much about Philip Stein as a person. He generally keeps his private life relatively private. Many people like to do that, because they aren’t interested in the paparazzi lifestyle that famous people and high-end designers must deal with. The pressures of that can be very upsetting and hard to deal with. Fortunately for Philip Stein, he’s managed to avoid these things.
In fact, Philip Stein as a person technically doesn’t exist. Mr. Stein’s first name is Wilhelm, but he didn’t think that it would be a good name for a watch company. Philip was a name that he and his wife had talked about for their child, and they ended up choosing it to represent their watch brand instead. It’s a great way to have a ‘person’ associated with the brand without giving up too much anonymity in the meantime. No matter who Philip Stein really is, the watches that bear his name are some of the best out there, and they continue to retain both their beauty and popularity.
