Susan Galvin is a Finnish born, Sydney based watchmaker with over 10 years of industry experience. She established Galvin Watch Company after being made redundant in March 2020. Rather than becoming another statistic, she embarked on the journey of establishing her own watch brand. After raising over $120,000 AUD through crowdfunding, she was able to proudly establish her brand. Inspired by classic watch designs, Susan endeavours to continue designing beautiful and elegant timepieces.
For me, the first watch collection Alku, designed by Galvin, stands out as it has vintage flair in all of its proportions.
..she is, as far as I'm aware, the first woman to launch her own wristwatch brand in Australia.
The domed dials, perhaps rather fittingly, have a distinctive Scandinavian design – minimal adornment, maximum practicality.
