MANILA, Philippines – D1 Milano’s exciting brand of premium fashion watches is set to make a splash in the Philippines with its launch. Hailing from one the world’s fashion capitals, D1 Milano is an Italian watch manufacturer of premium fashion watches. Headed by a young Italian visionary, the brand is set to grow its reach this side of the world.

Putting a premium on offering clients sophistication and luxury at accessible price points, D1 Milano is able to come out with a great selection of timepieces that appeal to both men and women.

Man with a vision

Headed by CEO Dario Spallone, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, D1 Milano started out as a concept he came up with while he was studying in Bocconi University in Milan. He tested his business idea at the Bocconi University Business Incubator in 2014, where it gained tremendous traction.

In just a year, Dario had his company’s headquarters set up in the Dubai Design District in 2015 to turn what was originally his school project into a thriving global brand.

While the brand is his original concept, Dario likes to share the praise with his team, since D1 Milano would not be what it is today without the collaborative effort.

Currently, the brand already has offices set up in Milan, Dubai and Hong Kong, proving its massive appeal and very impressive growth. D1 Milano is currently available in over 500 sales points.

Enjoying incredible growth in just less than 10 years since its “birth, D1 Milano has become known to be one of the fastest growing watch brands in the world.

Take your pick

D1 Milano’s aesthetics are reminiscent of 1970s Italian fashion, which has become popular today. Featuring simple and clear lines, each D1 Milano watch is able to put better focus on the smaller details to make each piece more impactful and unique. From selecting the best materials, to the finishes of the watches, D1 Milano’s pieces exude pure Italian design that is well appreciated and admired by clients worldwide.

Four collections are made available in the Philippines: The Polycarbon, Ultra Thin, P701 and  The Super Slim.

The Polycarbon collection is D1 Milano’s bestselling timepiece. Without compromising quality, the entry-level watch is a thin and lightweight 40mm quartz with a black Luminova finish on the hands. 

The Super Slim collection features a stainless steel case of either a 36mm or 40mm case and comes with interchangeable strap options. So whether you prefer a Perlon, leather or Milanese strap/bracelet, the Super Slim collection has something to offer for the chic and fashionable wearer.

Introduced in 2017 with a supple Italian suede leather strap, and later a full stainless steel bracelet, the Ultra Thin has become another bestseller in a very short period of time. The unisex collection comes in 38mm or 40mm with strikingly luxurious and elegant lines found on the case and hands of the watch. 

Chic and supremely comfortable, the eye-catching yet agile design of the P701 collection brings together all the hallmarks of the D1 Milano brand to create the perfect everyday watch. The collection uses a 1.55mm stainless steel case with an Automatic movement and paired with either a rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet.
