I was always drawn to watches. There was just something about them ignited a fire deep inside me, but for a long time, I didn't do anything to follow up on this passion that I felt. Instead, I went on living my humdrum life. I was earning enough money to live comfortably, and I was always afraid that if I tried to pursue watchmaking, I was going to have to risk the stability to which I had grown accustomed. So, my life went on that way – risking nothing, the dream just sitting there at the back of my mind.

It was a 2017 trip to Iceland that changed all this for me. After meeting a woman who had decided to quit her job and travel the world, I experienced a moment of clarity. It was as if a lightbulb had gone off in my mind. I knew for the first time ever that I had to follow my dream for watchmaking. From there on out, my creative and entrepreneurial energies were flowing constantly. I was getting ideas day after day, and I was putting a lot of time into figuring out how to launch my brand. After a second trip – this one to the Danish architectural mecca of Orestad – I knew exactly what I wanted to do through James Noble. 

                                                                                       Iceland 2017

Two years later, I am taking a stand for the kind of watches that I myself would love to find on sale somewhere. I am staying true to my Scandinavian roots and crafting timepieces that are simple, minimalist, and always attractive. These are watches that look out of place nowhere, that you can wear just as comfortably in a ballroom as you can in a pub. Inspired by the glass and steel endemic to the Nordic buildings I saw in Orestad, I have made it my mission to build James Noble into a brand that people can connect with on a deep and visceral level.

More than just a brand, the  James Noble name symbolizes a passion for creativity and design. Made with meticulous attention to detail, our timepieces are always functional—always beautiful. True to our Scandinavian roots, our watches are minimalistic and easy on the eye, while still remaining smart enough for formal wear. James Noble timepieces have a clean, elegant look with a hint of modernity.

Our inspiration comes from the clean and modern lines of Scandinavian architecture. A visit to Danish architectural mecca Orestad cast its spell on our designs from the very beginning. The streets of West Amager, with its eclectic mix of Nordic nature and urban innovation, continues to spark our imagination and inspire our designs. The glass and steel, pure lines and down- to earth Nordic colours of these buildings are reflected in all our watches.

We use only the highest quality materials, whether it’s the sapphire crystal through which you view the time, the genuine leather strap on your wrist, or the stainless-steel casing that gives durability and exudes class. Amid life’s transience, our watches provide permanence. We hope your watch inspires you to make time for the things you love. 

These James Noble watches pick amply from all the best aspects of Scandinavian design. Echoes of Orestad, Copenhagen, and West Amager are all abundantly clear in these watches, each one made with a stainless steel case in gold or silver finish, a genuine leather strap, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and a Japanese quartz movement 

These James Noble watches for women are all about ageless elegance and durability. There are echoes of Scandinavian design here as well, and each watch is made with a stainless steel case in rose gold or silver finish, a genuine leather strap, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and a Japanese quartz movement.

What We Need & What You Get

In order to make my dreams of the James Noble brand into a reality, I am turning to you, Kickstarter. My goal through this campaign is to raise SEK 150,000, which will cover the costs of producing and distributing the initial run of James Noble watches in both the Classic Collection and the Petite Collection (featuring easily changeable straps available in varying shades of brown and packaged with a complimentary silver- or rose gold-plated brace). Make a contribution today and get your James Noble watch right away!

I want to say thanks to everyone who helps out at this critical juncture, and to do so, I am offering my watches at a significant discount on the already-low prices I have set. This is your opportunity to get a beautiful, top-shelf watch at a fraction of the price you would see in retail stores.

Share James Noble with Everyone!

In addition to making a monetary contribution to this campaign, you can show your support for the James Noble brand by sharing a link to the campaign on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you use. Go ahead and spread the word far and wide, letting all your friends and family know what I am doing.

I appreciate your support, friends. Once again, thank you for making a contribution to the James Noble brand through this campaign!

When you own a James Noble timepiece you’re never tied to a single idea. Just as you might change your wardrobe, you can alter the look of your watch. With a simple mechanism, you can easily switch straps on any of our watches, letting you make each one unique. 

The separately available straps are made from genuine leather. They come in black or varying shades of brown and include a complementary silver or rose gold-plated brace. With a James Noble watch, you’ll be whoever you want to be. 

Packaging plays an important role for us. This is the standard gift box the watch will be shipped in. A simple, yet very stylish and carefully designed box made to keep your watch safe during shipping and still present it in the most elegant way.

Risks and challenges

The factory we work with is a very reputable watch factory with a solid background of creating good quality watches.
All communication with the factory has been fast and smooth and we’re happy to say that they are as focused on quality as we are.

We believe that we have reduced the risk of manufacturing delays in the best way possible by good communication and solid prototype work. Of course one can never be fully certain when it comes to manufacturing and the estimated delivery time is only an estimation.

We have set a delivery time to late December and we really believe we can keep that timeline and will do everything in our power to do so.

To ensure that every watch is created to our high standards we will keep constant contact with our factory and we will have quality controls both at the factory and in Sweden before shipping.

Nevertheless, we will keep you, our backers, up to date during every step of the production process and we will always be as transparent as possible if there are any hiccups.

We hope this will be a smooth ride for us and for you.
