The Watch Standard is a reseller of high-end luxury timepieces.


In the world of buying and selling luxury watches, there are far too many businesses that use bait and switch tactics. They’ll offer a price to get the watch in hand, and then lower the price and say the watch wasn’t in as good of a quality as they had first thought, or that there was a flaw that hadn’t been seen in the pictures before it was shipped. This has bred a vibe of mistrust when it comes to the industry.


The team at the Watch Standard wanted to make it clear that they are all about trust. It was important for them to have a strong message of trustworthiness: “the buying price that we offer is what you will get, no exceptions.” Starting with the script, we created a concept that invokes class, respectability, and confidence in the brand. Everything from the visuals to the voiceover to the style align with the message that the customer is in professional hands when selling to The Watch Standard.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
