Simple Station is a docking and charging solution for the Apple Watch 38mm / 42mm and iPhone 6, 6Plus, 5, 5S and 5C. Simple Station simplifies the process of charging your Apple Watch and iPhone by allowing you to charge them together in a simple and effective solution. Simple Station also has a built in sound amplifier great for listening to music and amplifying your alarm.

Crafted in the USA by skilled craftsmen and engineers with over 25 Years of experience, Simple Station is CNC sculpted from a single block of Aerospace Aluminum that makes docking and undocking with one hand simple and easy, perfect for your home or office.

Unlike other Apple Watch docks, Simple Station works with both Apple Watch and iPhone allowing you to charge them together rather than having to buy two docks. With it’s minimally designed foot print Simple Station will reduce the clutter on any surface.

 SIMPLE STATION is COMPATIBLE with nightstand mode.


Simple Station has a built in cable management system that allows users to hide unsightly cables from view.

Simple Station has a built in sound amplifier great for listening to music and amplifying your bedside alarm.

Simple Station is crafted from Aerospace Aluminum.  This Alloy is used in the Automotive, Aerospace and Medical Industries. This alloy is known for its strength and lightweight properties.


With its sleek finish and minimal design, Simple Station looks great...

 Next to your bed....

 In the office...

 Even the Kitchen...

We opted to use high quality Aerospace Aluminum an alloy used in the Automotive, Aerospace and medical industry and sourced here in the USA.

It’s then sculpted using a state of the art CNC five axis machine. The part is then tumbled to remove any potential tool marks, imperfections on the surface and sharp edges. We then anodize the product to produce a beautiful and durable finish. It's then inspected for quality assurance.

Sophisticated Looks and Protection for your Apple Watch. Banded Classic combines the look and feel of a traditional watch with ultimate protection for your Apple Watch.

Banded Classic gives your Apple Watch the look and feel of a traditional watch while protecting it from dents and scratches. Banded's housing is crafted here in the USA by skilled craftsmen and engineers from Aerospace Aluminum to give the Apple Watch an elegant look as well as tough protection. The straps are made of genuine Italian leather to complete the luxurious look offered by traditional watches. 

Banded's bumper like bezel protects the Apple Watch Screen from scratches and cracks while its tough aerospace aluminum housing and interior rubber lining surround and protect your Apple Watch without interfering with any  functions of your Apple Watch.

We need YOUR support to make this project a reality. Your support will help us reduce the cost of mass production. For your support you will not only receive special rewards below retail but you will also do your part in supporting American Manufacturing.

We have already done the prototyping and have a factory lined up but we need to purchase raw materials in bulk and meet minimum order quantities to make Simple Station and Banded Classic a reality.

We believe well designed and high quality products should be affordable for everyone and we are counting on YOU the BELIEVERS to make it happen.

Risks and challenges

Having completed a couple successful Kickstarter projects we fully understand what’s needed to make this project run successfully. Our prototype has been extensively tested and we’ve partnered with a world class factory here in the USA to ensure that our final product is of impeccable quality and is shipped on time. As soon as our campaign is complete, we will begin production; personally overseeing every step of the process. We also have our support team on standby to ensure the project runs smoothly. We recognize that even the best laid plans may have complications, but we are confident that our team is experienced, resourceful and determined enough to deal with any situation.
