Philip Stein has been named the official watch partner of the 2013 Sydney Film Festival.
Philip Edwards, owner of Duraflex Group Australia, the local distributor of the watch brand, said the company was thrilled to partner with the Sydney Film Festival.
“As a leading international luxury brand that designs timepieces and lifestyle products of exceptional quality and distinctive style, Philip Stein is the perfect watch partner for Australia’s only internationally accredited film competition,” he said.
The official partnership between Philip Stein and the Sydney Film Festival commenced with the program launch and will extend throughout “12 exciting days of cinema, culture, and glamour” from June 5 to 16.
Guests at the 2013 Sydney Film Festival will include a mix of both local and international celebrities including actor Hugo Weaving who has been announced as Jury President for the 2013 Official Competition.
Launched in 2003 by Miami-based entrepreneurs Will and Rina Stein, the Philip Stein Group is renowned for its watches and other lifestyle products featuring “natural frequency technology”.
Based on “key frequencies beneficial to life and health”, the company’s proprietary natural frequency technology is embedded on a metal disc in each Philip Stein watch.
Will Stein (pictured) told Jewellery World that the couple launched the company after being introduced to natural frequency technology and personally experiencing its “positive impact on health and wellbeing”.
“We launched the company with the goal of creating a luxury watch that could help others improve their health and wellbeing too,” he said.
The brand, which has been distributed in Australia by Duraflex Group Australia for around six years, is currently sold in 35 countries.
