Brand Values


The Finnish concept of “sisu” was a driving force in the founding of Galvin Watch Company. To the Finnish people, sisu has a mystical, almost magical meaning. It is a Finnish term that can be roughly translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Sisu is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain that courage. It is a word that cannot be fully translated.
Galvin Watch Company draws upon the professional expertise of founder Susan Galvin to create exquisite timepieces. She has a fundamental role in the design, selection of materials, and after-care of the watches. Susan’s eye for detail and dedication to precision ensures the longevity of the company’s product.
As a female-founded microwatch brand, Susan is a pioneer in her field. Her story and professional expertise encapsulate the values of Galvin Watch Company.
