To celebrate 20 years of Chopard Manufacture, the iconic watch marque’s full-fledged manufacture in Fleurier, Switzerland, Gentleman’s Journal has profiled five young, stylish and successful entrepreneurs who, like the craftsmen at Chopard, have turned their passions – from the worlds of art, food, clothing and music – into their careers. For the debut of this series, we bring you British model and musician, Sam Way.
Up-and-coming musician and model Sam Way’s artistic talents were first discovered by the legendary Eric Hall, the same man who launched the careers of Queen and the Sex Pistols. As the face of campaigns for brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Paco Rabanne and Diesel, Sam’s modelling has made him a household name and seen him featured in numerous adverts – for fragrances, clothing lines and accessories. Now pursuing his dream of becoming a singer-songwriter, the 28-year-old, who was brought up on world music by his musician father, is already receiving glowing reviews. He is currently working on an exciting new sound for his impending EP.
Sam wears the Chopard L.U.C XPS in Fairmined Gold, £13,180.
