Will and Rina Stein share that within a year of launching their brand, customers provided testimonials that the watches have given them better sleep, lessened their tension, improved their concentration and enhanced their moods. The Philip Stein watch was featured on “Oprah” in 2003 as one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things.” Will and Rina Stein say that the iconic watch they created has become known as the “feel good watch,” as it helps people feel better. Philip Stein watches will often feature dual time zone dials and interchangeable straps.
Charlotte Druckman discussed in “Oprah Magazine” that, the Philip Stein Teslar Watch works by producing an electromagnetic field that pulses against the wearer’s wrist seven to nine times per second. The electromagnetic field mimics the signals sent by the brain when a person is in a state of calm or peak athletic performance. These timepieces and accessories are sold in more than 30 countries across the world.
