When Wing Liang talks about watches, he waxes poetic about the American spirit of innovation, the ingenuity and love of exploration that led to space travel and feats of engineering that embrace beauty and celebrate originality. This is the spirit that Wing’s designs evoke and that watch collectors have been discovering in ANDROID®’s unique and distinctive line of watches. This is what drives this self-taught watch designer to seek out the best quality materials, components, and movements for his creations.
Liang graduated with a degree in International Business and a deep interest in design. He founded ANDROID® in 1991 as a watch-making company with a unique philosophy: high-quality production of cutting-edge designs with forward-looking technology and the support of excellent service. As CEO and sole designer, Wing ensures this philosophy is conveyed in every ANDROID® timepiece.
At its inception in 1991, the company started by making fashion watches with an eye to the great design heritage of American film, industry and fashion. The iconic Alien watch from the 1994 collection reflect this sensibility. But Wing’s growing awareness of trends in horology has led him to choose ever more important movements and increasingly refined materials.
ANDROID® now has global reach, with product available around the world, inspected for quality and shipped from its headquarters in Florida. Wing Liang is personally involved in fostering improved media and social media presence to communicate with the watch-buying community.
Wing is confident that an American watchmaker can produce design to compete and succeed in a global marketplace that has seen growth and diversification of horology. ANDROID® watches stride onto the scene with bold, modern designs that take the best of traditional watch making and infuse it with the energy of today’s watch enthusiasts. Traditional materials like sapphire crystals, mother of pearl and gold are employed in cutting edge designs and combined with modern materials like tungsten, rhodium, ceramic and tritium to create extraordinary and unexpected timepieces to catch the eye of the contemporary watch collector.
The movements that Wing chooses for each model reflects his concern for quality and deep awareness of the interests of watch aficionados. Sourced from around the world, the movements harmonize with the designs and are finding favour with watch lovers worldwide! ANDROID®’s latest timepieces show off tactical and industrial designs with skeletonized dials and large plated bezels.
