Our Story
We are an independent American watch brand with a passion for exquisite detail and a commitment to excellence. Unmoved by the shallow ethos peddled by luxury brands and weary of fast-fashion offerings designed for obsolescence, we seized the opportunity to establish a legacy.

We craft world-class wrist watches that combine classic design and contemporary engineering. Our drive — to inspire those with discerning tastes to seek more from the watch on their wrist.

The grey dial, black bezel looks nice, I can't get past the name though.

Seems like a decent enough watch.

I've seen a lot worse. But you can buy a Croton with an NH35 variant for $65.

Or, like a Seiko for about $200-250.

Or a Hamilton Khaki with a Caliber 80 for a hundred bucks more than these jamokes are asking (gray market.)

This is the problem with microbrands, and why I disdain them so much. Who buys them, and why? If I meet a guy who's wearing a Seiko diver or a Hamilton, I know almost immediately that He's One of Us. If I see some fucking clown wearing a Traska, I assume he's a schmuck. The same goes for just about any micro out there.

How did Seiko get where it's at in the market and in This Thing of Ours? Or Hamilton, for that matter? They have some history, they make an honest, great watch. They didn't come up with a marketing plan in their mom's basement. When they make a watch, they don't pick out cases and dials and bracelets from some online catalogue from Hong Kong. They didn't suck a bunch of blogger's cocks from guys who are "influencers," a term that literally makes my skin crawl even typing.

The zenith (or more accurately, nadir) of micros was that douchebag who made Deaumar wartchs, posting about how the world did him wrong when his brand died. Naturally, it was everybody else's fault that he couldn't make a go of it; like most millennials, he figured his shit didn't stink, every idea he had was fucking great, and nobody wanted his shit wartchs because they were, well, fucking shit.

Micros make their living by standing on the shoulders of giants. Alas, most giants still move, and folks standing on their shoulders tend to fall off and go splat on the sidewalk.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
