Elegant, precision made watches with premium components, including a Swiss Ronda movement and full-grain Italian leather straps. Inspired by past, present and future, built by hand. Delivered at a price accessible to many.

 

The Flagship 40mm takes style cues from classic watches of the last two centuries and builds them into a solid and perfectly weighted 316L Stainless Steel case. This steel grade is used by Omega and Cartier in their watches and is finely brushed to give an ultra-clean, ultra-modern finish.

Built to last. Ronda 7-series movement and components manufactured with Swiss precision for accuracy and long-term reliability. 

 

 

Meticulous scrutiny has gone into every step of the design process with the ultimate goal of creating a highly diverse, customizable timepiece. We streamlined our design to simplify the manufacturing process and therefore maximize build quality and finish.

Our super-refined case is perfectly proportioned and is coupled with a screw-down stainless steel case-back, giving a waterproof rating of 10ATM / 100m.

 

 

 

 

Different straps can transform the watch from a --- smart work watch, weekend casual wear, or even a military-style timepiece. There are many canvas combinations available, each conveying a unique style or expression through two simple colours.

 

 

 

 

 

Tasteful minimalism helps bring out the the subtle details and allows build quality to be not only achieved but also admired.

 

 

 

 

 

Your lifestyle is constantly evolving, so we created a clean, smart and original timepiece that pays tribute to the classic watches, whilst adding a modern touch fit for any style or occasion.

 

 

  

 

 

 

   

                    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We've been working on the Flagship 40mm for the past couple of years, spanning three prototyping stages and a number of fine-tuned revisions. The end result is a world-class watch that can be efficiently made to a high standard in both build, spec and overall finish. Brought straight to your door, we say goodbye to the middleman.

It's been a long road and we’re extremely excited to introduce an unrivalled quality watch to the world.

In order to further get costs down to a price that creates superb value for our customers, we need to have a large initial production run. Your support will allow us to place our first large order with our manufacturers so that we can reduce production costs and get the Flagship 40mm in the hands of people everywhere. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                             
 

 

Albany & Co. was started by two friends from university who share 10 years of business, design and engineering experience. They found that most watches which met their high standards cost way more than their low budgets could afford. They wanted to create a luxury brand that can stand strong alongside high-end fashion goods in both design & build, offering long lasting value and a unique user experience. They set out to achieve this goal in 2015.

 

Risks and challenges

Although we are confident with the projected ship dates, there is always the risk of unforeseen challenges with our manufacturing. We will be doing everything we can to mitigate those risks and we will aim to be transparent and work with our backers by providing regular updates.

We appreciate you being an early supporter and will work hard to maintain your trust throughout our process.
