Original Penguin Watches have an incredibly rich history which dates right back to the 1950s, when ambitious salesman Abbot Pedersen stumbled upon a stuffed penguin by chance that spawned a brand which was to become globally recognised as one of the world’s most iconic. Synonymous with superstars such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Arnold Palmer, Clint Eastwood and Richard Nixon, to name a few, it is easy to see why their watches are due to adorn the wrists of thousands of stylish people this summer!
Original Penguin watches have become known for their quality, style and image. The aptly named Pete the Penguin is the sign of such excellence and his presence on their products is the symbol that it meets the brand’s impeccable standards. Most of the models come fitted with a quartz movement, designed to keep time for as long as you want to keep the watch and the modern styling makes them certified future classic. Fantastically creative mixtures of colours and shapes have attracted the attention of many and since 2000, the brand has been thrust back into the limelight once again. In 2003, this vast new audience led to the rebirth of an Original Penguin by Munsingwear, and an alliance with an international fashion house. Penguin’s range of mid-century classics was reworked to reflect today’s lifestyle without compromising the heritage or craftsmanship that had made Penguin’s name.
The full range is expected to hit the cyber shelves this Autumn and we have little information as to how they will exactly look at this point…except that Pete the Penguin will feature heavily. Flowing shapes with classic materials are expected and a very good standard of craftsmanship is a given.

The ‘This Is My Time’ statement is featured at the bottom centre of the dial and the watch also displays Rosso’s engraved signature. But be warned as this watch is produced in highly limited quantities, so once it’s gone it’s gone! Each This Is My Time watch also comes with its limited edition identification number and will eventually make a great collectors item.
There is also a fantastic selection of other Diesel watches to feast your eyes upon – the sleek D77179 for example with its rugged aesthetic, also features three time zones. This is a function that Diesel is renowned for including in its watches to represent its universal appeal.

FLY53 is one of those ultra cool brands that screams style setter. The brand was founded in 1994 with a moderate collection of limited edition t-shirts for men and was geared towards people who believed that life should be lived to the full. It was also the perfect brand for those who like to use their style as an expression of their lifestyle and personality. Needless to say, the brand has become incredibly popular and though can be described as one of the more ‘underground’ labels on the style scene, it definitely has a prominent position in the fashion industry.
The FLY53 brand describes itself as ‘the uniform of the street’ and is largely inspired by the London scene in term of fashion, music, art and sport. The style attitude is one that conveys a sense of independence, is sassy and with a rock ‘n’ roll spirit. The label has extended its product ranges to include women’s clothing and accessories and its latest products include the super cool collection of FLY53 watches for men. Lucky for you, the FLY53 watch range has now landed here at Shade Station!
The collection of FLY53 men’s watches represents that same unique and individual style expression as the rest of the FLY53 collections. The colour combinations available include statement black and white, exquisite brown and gold, and electric green and black. The watches are bold, striking and trendy but with that FLY53 unique edge that makes them a little distinctive from the norm. Some of the colourful designs are more sports and fun inspired whereas the gold and brown options for example, are more traditional and chic in aesthetic.
The dials are large and round and feature the FLY53 logo. Strap options include padded, textured leather or silicone and the FLY53 logo is also etched onto the stainless steel buckle. The FLY53 watches are also accessible from a price perspective at around £80.00 to £85.00 each.
FLY53 watches can be worn to compliment every look and perfectly continue the brands theme of being a style leader as opposed to a trend follower. The brand is renowned for its edgy, creative and ever-changing approach to fashion and the splash of light-hearted humour also keeps FLY53 watches exciting, effortlessly stylish and fresh!

Diesel watches are tough and uncompromising just like their famous counterpart, Diesel jeans. The urban brand is famous worldwide for their attention to detail and the quality of their clothes and accessories. Once a Diesel fan always a Diesel fan and celebrities are no different. On the other side of the pond, Diesel fans include; the ever shrinking Kelly O, style icons Kate Bosworth and Nicole Richie and Twilight hottie Taylor Lautner. And it’s no different in Blighty, model Daisy Lowe and Victoria Beckham, along with half the population of the UK are huge advocates of Diesel – all of which, has led to sales figures of over a billion euros since 2007!
Diesel’s progressive and fun marketing campaigns have been anything but dull – with their tongue in cheek slogan ‘For successful living’ and their current ‘Be Stupid’ campaign generating column inches (2 of the ads were banned in Britain for being too saucy, yet they won awards on the continent!) Diesel have a lot to be happy about. They are now known globally as a lifestyle brand and are still continuing to grow and open new stores.
One of Diesel’s more popular collections is their watch range. Diesel watches offer original designs, durable exteriors and the cool factor for the most part under £100. Some of the men’s watches push the £160 mark but overall Diesel watches are great value for money. As you’d expect with an edgy, urban brand, their wristwear is largely chunky and solid and there is plenty of choice. Not discriminating between digital and analogue, there are Diesel watches for both sexes and, although there are lots of browns and blacks in the collection (very suitable for the Autumn and Winter months!), there are also flashes of bright colour (mainly for ladies!).
Shade Station stocks a wide range of Diesel watches, so if you are a fan of this innovative lifestyle brand take a look at the shop page to find your perfect wristpiece!

The autumn/winter season is here and whilst the weather may be cooler, this is the perfect time of year to brighten up the winter blues with a fabulous watch, a statement piece of jewellery or complete your look with a pair of stylish sunglasses and a cool accessory. You may have noticed that we’ve launched an amazing array of new brands, meaning that now is the perfect time for you to browse and pick out your key pieces for this season and beyond!
The great thing about accessories is that they can completely transform an outfit – a dramatic pair of sunglasses can instantly turn you into the ultimate fashionista, whilst a super chic watch can add the perfect finishing touch to a plain outfit and provide it with the ability to transcend from day to night. Of course, quality and function is also high on the agenda so you can be assured that the brands in the offering offer the absolute best in every department.
Let’s begin with our extensive watch collections. As mentioned, we have a great selection of new brands just added and the first exciting addition comes in the form of Amplifyd watches which can be described as ‘pimped’ up versions of Casio watches. What makes Amplifyd watches immediately pop and draw attention are the exquisite hard set stone embellishments positioned around the case, dial and bezel. Amplifyd watches are also special because they are available in extremely limited quantities and are therefore highly sought-after. A must-have for all lovers of bling!
