Leaving my part-time job in downtown Baltimore as a teen I came across a man driving a red convertible Porsche sporting a fancy gold watch with a jeweled bezel (I now know that it was Rolex). I vowed right at that moment that one day I would have a watch like that. For me this represented the success I aspired to have and the watch proved a mark of accomplishment that I desired. Thirty-five years later I've acquired quite the watch collection of Swatch, Hamilton, Raymond Weil, Brera, Tag Heuer, Movado, Gucci & Rolex watches. Perhaps the most prized pieces in my collection are my grandfathers' Southwest Tradition & Hamilton watches - something I remember seeing on their wrists during my many visits with each of them. I wanted to design a watch under my own luxury brand as a legacy time piece. Something with a classic luxury design worthy of the name and passing on to my children.
Most people have a watch story; when they bought their first watch, their favorite watch, a watch they admire or a legacy timepiece from a loved one. Check your jewelry drawer, case or just look down at your wrist and share your WRYSTORY. We would love to hear it, please send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
