Our Story


It is human instinct to discover and explore – serial entrepreneur Taylor Wise is no exception to this instinct.

Wise grew up in Qatar, a small, peninsular country in the Middle East. By the time he was a teenager, Wise had traveled to over 23 countries throughout Europe and the Middle East, observing the many diverse cultures and breathtaking sights of the world.

Now a college student looking to urge others to experience the world as he has, Wise founded SLĒK, a line of watches inspired by the sights of his travels.


"Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit, and to pause, to falter, to turn our back on the quest for knowledge, is to perish.” –Frank Borman


In today’s modern society, it is easy to become caught in a repetitive cycle of waking, working, and sleeping. Not only is this cycle monotonous, but it can also become unhealthy.

At SLĒK, we hope to inspire the world to break free of this cycle at times and explore – even if only their own backyard.

To encourage this exploration and creativity, we urge our followers to post pictures of their SLĒK watch in the beauty of their local area using the hashtag #keeptimesimple. Once a week, we will feature a fan submitted photo on our Instagram!
