About a year and a half ago, one of my best friends and her husband started noticing that it was very difficult to find quality watches for men for under $500. They began to design watches on the computer for fun, and then found themselves learning about watch making. Before they knew it, they were contacting parts suppliers and ordering the first samples of their designs. Today, Lauren and Robbie are the brains behind Hudson River Watch Co. They are two incredibly creative New Yorkers who have come up with some beautiful and unique watch designs. In their own words, "Hudson River Watch Co. is a NYC-based watch company specializing in high quality watches inspired by the streets of our favorite city."
A complete website for Hudson River Watch Co. is in the works and a temporary one exists (http://hudsonriverwatchco.com). For now you can follow them on Facebook and Instagram for pictures and updates.
After seeing the pictures below you will definitely want to know when and how you can get your hands on one of these. Watches will be available for pre-sale with shipping this summer through Kickstarter. All watches will retail for around $300, however, on Kickstarter they will be offered at a discount price of around $225. In addition, the more watches you buy, the cheaper each watch will be. Hudson River Watch Co. plans to offer packages with multiple watch straps so that each watch can be worn a number of different ways.
