Our Story

In 2017, Founder and CEO of Michael Philippe, Dean Landau, rat race dropout, decided to throw in the towel, step out of his comfort zone and leave his ‘high paid’ corporate job and ‘status quo’ life behind with a dream and burning desire for more.

To leverage his knowledge, experience and time to acquire the mindset to be the greatest and most authentic version of himself. He knew true greatness started from within. His mission, to take control and conquer the mind.

‘To truly love and empower others, you must love and empower yourself first.’ – D.L


His journey of self-care and deep self-discovery began. Travelling, educating and documenting his life whilst being present in the moment. Starving distractions, removing all negative energy and destroying any limiting beliefs with the goal of clearly identifying and mapping out his vision to make a difference on a global scale.

To live and give in abundance. To serve.

Dean soon realised that his greatest joy, passion and happiness came from giving, enlightening, inspiring and ultimately, empowering others to embrace and celebrate everything that they are, to be the greatest and most authentic version of one’s self – mentally, spiritually, physically and financially.

What with the art of designing timepieces going back generations in his family, coupled with his vision, a keen eye for fashion, a love for watches with an extensive collection to go with it, and along with, a deep passion for physics and time itself…

Michael Philippe Watches was born!


A brand, a platform, for Dean and his team to empower others to be everything that they are whilst respecting one’s most precious commodity, time!

‘Michael Philippe is more than just a watch brand. It’s about making time count!

It’s a figure of empowerment. It’s a mindset. It’s a lifestyle. A journey to greatness! I want people all around the world to wear our watches with meaning and connect on a deeper, more powerful level than just wearing a great statement of a watch. I want the watch owner ‘the empowered’ to connect with our story, vision and brand to feel and be empowered to be everything that they are unconditionally, to go and get what it is they truly want from life, to make their dreams, reality. Whilst, being in the moment and enjoying the journey. As far as I am aware, we have one life. I choose to live, not just exist’ - D.L

You are the CEO of your Life.

Be Empowered.
