Hi Raj, can you tell us about yourself?
“I am 26 and I was born and bred in Melbourne, Australia.
I’ve completed a degree in Engineering at Monash University and ever since graduating have been tinkering with various business’s until I found my passion in designing watches.”
In your own words, can you tell us a little about Revolve Watches?
“Revolve Watches is a luxury watch brand without the luxury price tag.
I always traveled and found beautiful watches around the world and each time I was disheartened at the price mentioned. I really wanted to design a luxury watch which a majority of the population could easily afford.
This quality will be seen in each and every watch we hand develop for our customers. We wish to start a revolution for low-cost luxury timepieces.”
Like most entrepreneurs, it was Raj’s own frustration and need to find an adequate solution to a problem that inspired him to start Revolve Watches.

Is there anything in particular that ‘inspird’ you to pursue entrepreneurship?
“Quite simply I cannot see myself working for others. Especially when the ultimate goal for most organisations is to make money the greedy way as opposed to providing solutions to problems.
I wanted to create an organisation where every employee is loved and the atmosphere is full of energy. My goal was to create a brand which has only a positive connotation to it.”

What would you say was the biggest challenge you faced getting to where you are now?

It has been a constant juggling act, but I have managed to get this far and I won’t stop until I achieve my personal dreams.”

What’s your favourite quote?

As we all know the watch industry is super competitive. Is there any advice you could give to someone trying to make their products stand out in an industry with high levels of competition?
