Sólás Watches

Sólás Watches is an Irish microbrand, run by Diyu Daniel Wu, who assembles all of their watches himself in Ireland. Solas also source their salmon skin straps sustainably as a by-product of the fishing industry, and uses a local strapmaker in Ireland for all their Horween leather and salmon leather straps.

Solas Watches first release, the Sólás Starlight, in addition to having a gorgeous aventurine dial which can sparkle like the stars in a clear night sky, was the first microbrand watch to offer an affordable micro-rotor. Diyu has very ambitious future plans for the brand, and aims to eventually produce a minute repeater. He is extremely passionate about horology and that shows in the quality of his work, with any watches performing outside of a reasonable range being carefully regulated, and all watches subject to in-house water resistance testing.
