Hello,

We are James & Muriel, a watch brand based out of Seattle, Washington focused on the design, production, and sale of high-quality timekeeping instruments with a pure and functional aesthetic. 


The TimeKeeper 41mm 

Introducing our flagship TimeKeeper collection, engineered to showcase beauty, precision, and elegance.

The Timekeeper is driven by a Swiss-made gold plated Ronda movement and encased in a 316L corrosion resistant surgical grade stainless steel case that comes strapped with an interchangeable full-grain Italian leather band.

All our watches are backed by a 3 year international warranty. We offer a limited international warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of THREE (3) years after original purchase from James & Muriel.

We are two friends who are obsessed with the details and craft of well designed watches. We started James & Muriel to create unique timepieces of the highest quality that we can wear and be proud of. With our emphasis on good, essential design, we want to make the simple everyday act of checking the time a little more delightful and magical.

We invite you to be a part of our journey by contributing to our campaign and spreading the word to your friends, families, and social networks. 

Please feel free to reach out to us at hello@jamesandmuriel.co if you have any questions.


1. Good design

We believe that good design must be both functional and beautiful. Every design decision we’ve made in creating the TimeKeeper all reflect our desire to enhance the overall, everyday experience of checking the time.  


2. Premium Materials

To translate good design into reality, we’ve spent over 24 months sourcing and sampling several materials and we’ve carefully selected only the materials that we believe are both elegant and durable to ensure our watches last long and wear comfortably on the wrist. 


3. Built to last

We believe that the quintessential watch should be durable. A great watch is more than just an everyday accessory, it is a companion that stays with you as you live through and encounter the hustle and bustle of daily life. Over time, we’ve stress-tested our watches in a variety of conditions and guarantee a solid build that will last you years. We also provide you with a 3 year warranty to back up our claim. 

This project's logistics plan has passed a thorough 7-point review and Floship certifies that we have an efficient and reliable logistics plan to deliver this good from the factory to you, the customers

Risks and challenges

Delivery delays:

We have spent the last year planning and strategizing on the best ways to get our watches to our backers as quickly as possible, and we’ve worked with our manufacturers to anticipate and preempt a lot of the issues that could potentially impact an on-time delivery. However, as a contingency, we’ve included what we believe to be sufficient buffer time into our timeline to account for the possibility that everything doesn’t go as we anticipate. We assure our backers that we will maintain frequent, honest and timely communication to keep everyone updated should any issues arise.

Shipping & Fulfilment:

Some countries or postal services are known for being slow with customs or shipping - but we will do our best to make sure our products are shipped out on time. We will keep you up to date on shipping information, but we hope you understand that once the product leaves our hands - there’s often little we can do to speed things up with our shipping partners or your country’s customs department. If you do run into any trouble - please contact us directly at: hello@jamesandmuriel.co
