Less than 24 Hours Left to Get a California Watch!

California Watch Co. timepieces were designed with dimension in mind. From concave subdials to raised applied indices, domed dials to skeleton hands–we focus on the small details that culminate in unique, modern designs. We're a small team with minimal overhead and we ship directly to you which allows us to offer unique, high quality watches at fair pricing. 

California Watch Co. will be sold exclusively on Watches.com and Californiawatch.com. Watches.com is known for selling the coolest, most unique watches you can find online.

The Mojave and Laguna 40 collections feature luminous hands. The Mavericks collection has luminous hands on all models and luminous dials when the numbers are white. 

Individuality is very important to us which is why each watch is uniquely numbered. There are so many watches in the marketplace that look the same. Our unique, dimensional designs in limited edition runs will help you stand out.

Each California Watch Co. collection represents a memorable location, big or small, from across the state that left an impression on us. We're excited to introduce our first collections: Mojave, Golden Gate, Mavericks, and Laguna. 

We’ve teamed up with the Save the Waves Coalition, a non-profit group that protects coastal ecosystems around the world in partnership with local communities, utilizing a unique combination of protected areas, economics, and direct action. We’re proud to donate a portion of each sale to this incredible organization. 

All watches from California Watch Co. come with a limited warranty covering defects in materials and manufacturing for a period of two (2) years after the original purchase date.

We all experience time differently. There’s island time where things move slow. Then there’s the concept of a “New York minute,” where there's never enough time and things need to happen at a hectic pace.

If you look back on the past month or year, you mostly remember the moments where you took a trip or did something outside of your ordinary routine. We try to live on what we call “California time,” where you live your day-to-day life, but take the time to experience what's around you. That’s why we're launching California Watch Co. 

Our hope is that whether you live in California or not, you can wear our watches as a memento on your wrist--like a string around your finger--and at some point it can remind you to get out there and see something new. 

All California Watch Co. designs are created by us right here in northern California. 

We’ve gone through multiple stages of prototyping and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail. It's what sets us apart from the name brands who outsource design and production to the big watch industry corporations. The final production ready samples look amazing.  

Our manufacturing partner has over 30 years experience in the watch industry and stands ready to start production at the conclusion of our Kickstarter campaign if we reach our funding goal.

Risks and challenges

We vigorously test our working prototypes before bringing production-ready designs to Kickstarter. In fact, over the last year we've gone through multiple revisions to get California Watch Co. timepieces ready for production. In the rare event that any model/color receives less than 5 backers, California Watch Co. reserves the right to offer a different model/color or to refund the pledge in full.

We are confident that we will meet our estimated delivery dates. Our backers will be in the loop as we communicate updates at every stage of the process.
