About this project
We are three entrepreneurs from the most southern parts of Sweden, who share the same passion for animals. For over a year we have been working on this project and we are very pleased and eager to show you our first collection.
We at Oliwer Lion believe that every small effort counts and measures into something bigger, therefore we established a healthy connection to LionAid in the effort of saving the Lions. We designed and created our first series of timeless watch pieces, with the purpose of establishing a brand which offers permanent support to LionAid.
We are three young entrepreneurs from the well known Sydkusten, Skåne, Sweden. For a long time we have thought about creating a business and a brand where we could both incorporate our love for animals and for endless fashion.
The elegance of a watch is something that is very hard to find in anything else and therefore we decided to create an accessory that works in your everyday life just as good as it does on your adventures.
With our knowledge in graphic design, sales, marketing and fashion combined, we were able to create a high quality product suited for everyone, with a great purpose.
Lions probably speak more directly to people than any other wild species. Through art, through literature, through symbolism and heraldry, through representations on flags and national emblems, lions have a universality that appeals regardless of culture, race, and national origin.
Lions represent such a strong image to the world that words cannot but fail to express the true level of their iconic impact.
So why LionAid?
The usual way of conserving animals has not worked so well which is why LionAid was created. They are doing things differently by working directly with local communities, leaders and politicians in Africa as well as key decission makers and politicians in the UK, US, the EU to put in place sustainable policies to ensure that lions don't dissappear for ever.
When you want to support lions then support LionAid, because they're making a real difference. This means that only 14 African countries have lions today. To lose the lion in Africa would be considered as another in our long list of failures to keep natural populations of large predators alive.
Conservationists say most natural populations of lions will be gone in the next ten to twenty years - hunted, poisoned, speared, trapped, slaughtered. If things don't change.
LionAid are working to make sure things really change. In the past 50 years existing approaches to lion conservation have allowed 185,000 lions to become bleached bones or tanned skins. This is why LionAid are taking a different approach with new ideas and new ways to protect and conserve the remaining 15,000 lions

Our designer, having more than 10 years of experience in graphical design, made it easier for us to bring the watch to life. He sat down for countless of hours bringing the first draft of a watch to life, through brainstorming and bouncing ideas of one another, we came up with the final design.
The inspiration for the watch came from the symbolism of the rare beauty of a lion, simple but yet one of the most elegant creatures to ever walk the earth. We all agreed that we wanted to keep our first collection simple with details that are timeless.
We have carefully done a lot of research regarding the look of different watch designs over the last year and therefore decided to go with a case based on our own requests and measurements.
Our design comes in three different colors. A gold one, a silver one and an all black one.
