KLO & Co.'s Newest Watch Collection Is Meant for Conquering Adventures
When Kenn Ong, Ralph Yu, and Bryan Chua launched KLO & Co. two years ago, they sought to bring something unique to the market. Using cutting-edge watchmaking techniques, KLO & Co. offers a unique and innovative take on timepieces. Now, after its debut collection and nine pieces later, the Filipino company is introducing its first waterproof sports watch.
Now, with the Alpesailer, the brand creates a product to cater to those continually on-the-go as well as "adventure-seeking individuals who have uncompromising style." The Alpesailer is the result of several years of development. It takes its name from the French word of Europe's Alps combined with Sailer to represent marine vessels equipped with sails. The name is fitting considering the sports watch's versatility as a functional and practical waterproof timepiece.

"Inspired by our travel adventures over the Swiss alps, and our affinity for the ocean. An innovative interpretation of a quintessential adventure timepiece, combining a durable waterproof triple-finished stainless steel case, a functional rotating inner bezel, and a high-precision automatic movement with date—the Alpesailer is meant for all-conquering adventures on land, air, and sea," says Ong.
What it offers is a waterproof, 316L stainless steel case and bracelet, a bi-directional rotating timing bezel, and a robust Japanese movement that makes it an excellent choice for everyday use. Upon closer inspection, however, you get KLO & Co.'s signature feature: a triple-finished case and integrated bracelet that artfully balances sophistication and sculpted design. Then, there's the automatic movement—the Seiko-developed NH35 which ensures timing precision.

Prices start at P19,500 for the deep blue version while the polar edition caps off at P21,500. But with that, you get state-of-the-art watchmaking techniques and a level of finishing and craftsmanship that defines KLO & Co. All things considered, it's pretty much a steal.
