Hagley West is an online watch company that has already sold into 39 countries and has over 50K followers on Social Media. Now in partnership with cricketing legend, Chris Gayle, they intend to increase their presence to billions of global cricket fans, with growth plans to the Asian market
Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple, watches are too expensive
Our journey began after a game of cricket in Menorca, two friends sat down and realised that they had more in common than just this sport. What started as a conversation led to a plan to start our own watch brand aimed at breaking down the high barriers to stylish watches. By cutting out big brand markups and sales agents, we developed a strategy to deliver direct to the consumer.
In 2018, we brought in over 40 professional cricketers to promote our watches. One year on, we have sold into 39 different countries and gained over 50,000 followers on social media.
Having seen us and liked what we did, Chris Gayle became a co-owner in September 2019. This opens up a massive growth opportunity as cricket has an estimated 2.5 billion global fans. Chris is one of the biggest names in cricket, with an Instagram following of 2.9 Million and links to many other key influencers in the world of sport. His global appeal opens up our marketing plans to a huge audience and he will be spearheading our drive into the lucrative Asian market.
Globally, the wrist watch industry was worth $47 Billion pa in 2018 with a forecast to reach $72 Billion by 2025.
This funding will help us accelerate our core business, expand into new markets, especially Asia and develop new ranges.
