Good morning my beauts, rise and shine! I have been enjoying this nice weather which has been absolutely beautiful. Honestly, when the weather is nice, it makes my day so much happier and brighter. When the weather is dull and gloomy, I often like to just stay in my pj’s and sleep all day, literally zero motivation to even do a thing. I am excited to share that a beautiful jewellery and watch company decided to reach out to me and ask if I was interested in collaborating with them! The company is called “Welly Merck“!
As you beauts know, it is a big deal for me when I am not the first one reaching out to companies, but instead, they are reaching out to me, its an honour. I was more than happy to collaborate with their beautiful company, and of course, had to say yes! I started looking up Welly Merck on Instagram to check out their company, and they have an amazing page. I later checked out their website and was amazed at how beautiful the watches were. You can never have too many watches as I say! Watches are such fashionable accessories and really pull an outfit together. Welly Merck designs are purposeful, modern, and always evolving. As Welly Merck states, “Watches are the ultimate statement piece”.
The Story Behind the Company
Each Welly Merck watch denotes excellence, diligence and sophistication. The company explains, “Welly Merck was founded on the true story of Merck and Welly, lovers who established a timeless identity by facing adversity and overcoming it. Welly Merck watches are evidence of their journey. Merck grew up a part of a small town’s lower-class, located against a backdrop of mountains, coal mining, and making-dye. His father, a miner, struggled to provide for Merck’s mother and siblings.Rather than being diminished by his surroundings and status, Merck was inspired by them. He grew up with a deep respect for family, an affinity for simplicity, and dedication to his work. From a very young age, Merck learned to never stop striving. Merck’s resolute spirit stuck with him throughout the years, and by age 16 he left his small hometown for college. Soon after that, Merck’s father fell seriously ill, leaving the family more vulnerable than ever. As a result of this situation, Merck was forced to relinquish his dreams of finishing college; these difficulties did not obliterate his ambitions. Perhaps more valuable than a college degree was his strength of character, which attracted his soul-mate, Welly, who he married.
In time, Merck was able to return to school and graduated with honours. Rather than being burdened by the difficulties he experienced, he grew more determined to succeed. Before long, he and Welly had a clear goal: to develop something that symbolized their approach to life and the things they’ve overcome. They created the Welly Merck watch, a representation of durability, simplicity, and tireless striving.
The Welly Merck watch line is for those who choose to make a statement. As a brand, Welly Merck seeks to align with people who, like the founders, never stop striving, never stop working hard, and who face obstacles with determination and class”. I absolutely love this story, it is so powerful and really is interesting to read and listen to. I love companies that have a wonderful background story and message to their company. This is what attracts my interest, and I could not be more proud of the company for creating such a wonderful watch line.
I was super excited to receive my watch in the mail, as I had ordered a rose gold watch with a black face and mesh strap. This watch in the store is called, “The Classic New York R, 36mm”. This watch can come in a white dial colour or black, which is what I ordered. The glass is a sapphire crystal, and its a Swiss Quartz Movement. I absolutely love any gold, or rose gold watches, I think they are absolutely stunning on, and I do not own a watch with a black face yet which is a really neat touch to the watch. There are also many different colours to choose from as well as men and women’s watches. Be sure to use my special discount for 15% off your purchase at checkout which is, “AlyssaH15″. You guys don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. The watch that I ordered retails in store for, $189.00. I absolutely love my watch and I think it really compliments my outfits perfectly.

Hello my beauts, it for sure has been a hot minute since my last blog post that I have written mainly because I have been super busy with work and waiting for products to come in the mail! I did not forget about you guys don’t worry! I have recently started to do collaborations and reach out to jewelry and watch companies, mainly because I have always been a lover for these accessories and they look absolutely stunning on. A watch is a girl’s best friend and literally completes every outfit possible. They are so fashionable, especially gold watches in my opinion. I decided to reach out to a company who specializes in Jewelry and watches and their company is called “Rob Hayes“. I was looking at their Instagram page and fell in love with the style of the watches right away! They were so fashionable and stylish, I absolutely loved the Roman Numeral look to them as well, this especially attracts me for sure. The company agreed to let me work with them which was amazing, and I was super excited to pick out a watch to receive. When looking online on their site , there were different watches to choose from such as: Gold/Gold Berkeley, Black/ Black Berkeley, Silver/ Silver Berkeley and lastly Silver/ Gold Berkeley. I specifically chose the gold one, because like I mentioned earlier, I absolutely love Gold watches and Jewelry, I think this looks unreal on.
“Unique and timeless watches with exceptional craftsmanship that will fascinate anyone”
The watches retail for $168.20 which is amazing considering the quality of the product you receive, and usually watches retail for around $400.00. My watch took a short period of time to arrive which was great, and I received my tracking information as well. The company was very pleasurable to work with, and were very friendly as well! So I know you guys are dying to know a bit about the company and what not! The founder and designer of the watches, Aladin Galjic, designed the watches in San Diego, California where he was heavily influenced by the vibe, happiness and the simplicity of life. Something about California gives off this phenomenon, and the company is trying to convey this feeling to customers through the watches and their designs. The company all started when Aladin had a burning desire to create great things. During his programming studies, designing and creating different elements was also a part of his work. Aladin then met Robert Hayes. Aladin states, “a very special man that was once a soldier but made a pivot to pursue his dream in life. He was a man with a purpose that taught me that life is short, and time should be dedicated toward doing things you love and that make you feel fulfilled. Pretty soon I realized that I was not a designer , I was a creator. That’s when I started designing things I loved”.
“…Every worn Rob Hayes tells a story”
Aladin also explains, “Our journey took us back to our home city Stockholm, where we partnered up with jewelry and watch industry experts to finalize the drawings and start the quest for the finest materials and quality components. Ever since we fell in love with the Pacific Ocean breeze and the smell of California citrus trees, we’ve been on a mission to make timeless watches that will never go out of style“.
I absolutely love this, and the watches are stunning. The design is beautiful and classy. I absolutely love and adore my watch! It for sure is one of my statement pieces by far. I want to personally thank Rob Hayes Watches for allowing me to collaborate and work with them on this blog post!
