We are joined by designer watch maker, Stuart Bishop, in the loft. He launched his quality brand, Skone, in 2017, and is already generating quite a buzz around him. Stuart who is originally from the UK, studied business at the University of London, and moved to Cape Town in 2014, after being able to travel to many countries such as Scandinavia and Sweden amongst others before calling South Africa home.
Stuart has gained a large interest for his timepieces due to the fact that designed with quality but are also sold at affordable prices, ranging from R399 to R1199, there are ranges for both male and female. Skone timepieces are sold online on their website (www.skone.co.za), they are also available from Takealot, Zando and Spree, with over 200 different ranges to choose from.
