The history of Esprit began with a love story set in 1968 in sunny Northern California. Doug Tompkins and Susie Buell met on Route 89 near the coast. Susie was taking a nice quiet ride in her Volkswagen Beetle when she set her eyes upon an attractive man in the distance. The man was named Doug, and he needed a lift. Susie did not hesitate at all and decided to take him. This was the start of something beautiful because only five years later they began Esprit together.
Having the common passion for nature, freedom, fashion and a relaxed lifestyle is what built the foundation of Esprit. Then in 1990 the first Esprit watches came on to the market. The Esprit Houston collection was one of the first watch collections by Esprit that also sold the day! Esprit has developed into a global brand with more than 7,800 independent retailers.

Esprit Children's Watches
Esprit has also thought about children. Esprit children’s watches have the most lively colour’s, floral patterns and fresh prints. Esprit children's watches are for boys, girls and young teens with their own style. What's also important is that these Esprit watches can endure a lot of roughhousing. They are ideal for all adventurous children.
The Esprit brand stands for corporate social responsibility. They fight for employees in lower-wage countries so that they can get paid fairly and that they are working in the right conditions. In 2007, Esprit also sold pink ribbons to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. These are just a few examples, but Esprit is always mindful of social responsibility and sustainability.
