Information Please

Hey ‘Crunchers.

I am a car guy as well as watch geek. I am part of a committee tasked with finding a manufacturer or vendor that represents customized watches for groups. We’ve been searching for the right fit (no pun intended) for over a year. 

The basic specs are as follows, but we are flexible depending on design:

  • Field/Sports watch style.

  • Stainless steel or titanium case.

  • 39-40mm case .

  • No specific design for dial except the inclusion of licensed club logo (we can provide camera ready art).

  • Straps no bracelet.

  • Known movements, quartz, automatic or manual wound.

Does anyone here have experience in making group buys of this sort and if so, would you share the vendor/watchmaker with me so that we can possibly contact them and move forward with this project?

TIA for any information.

Lance

Christopher Ward seems to be the most responsive to group requests, including custom details and dials.

Do you know how to contact them?

A member of a watch forum I frequently visit contacted them directly through their website. A company rep walked them through the process from beginning to end.

The forum ended up getting a custom watch with custom dial, hands and caseback details.

Thank you! That’s what we are looking for. We are still in “info gathering” stage, but I will definitely put CW on the list.

If you are talking fully customer, you will want to find a Private Label co to make it. You have have it fully done in China, Germany, Switzerland, etc. The problem is not many brands will cough up their private label since they are usually done privately for good reasons on both sides. A google of "<insert country" private label watch manufacturer" will yield lots of results. Be prepared to pay for the prototype up front and build it into your costs.
