    How do I manufacture a watch to my specs?

    Can someone please outline the steps to creating a watch. I want to create a watch but I have absolutely no idea how to go about it. I'm guessing create the specs and the way the watch looks on a computer program then contact manufacturers and then receive the watches. If that is true can someone confirm.

    There are options to make watches from parts catalogues on some Chinese retail sites but they typically only let you make bulk orders.

    When I was researching I saw that most microbrands do something like getting a catalog case and making custom hands or something, but Im how does someone go about creating a completely custom watch made to your specs.

    Are you looking to create one custom watch for yourself? Have you looked at Undone?

    Yes custom as in how thin or thick the case is, case shape and everything else not customizing a already done watch. And yes I've seen undone before but thank you.

    Lol if only it were that simple right? I oversimplified it a ton but I'm not that far off I believe.

    Do you know of any manufacturers that take custom one-off watch orders from the general public?

    Find 499 for friends to also want what you do, and are willing to pay for it up front, non-refundable pre-orders, I'll make whatever you want.


    Tapatalk is all natural. Wash in cold water and tumble dry on low heat. Some talk shrinking may occur.
    This used to be my signature, but now it's just this generic drawing of a watch.

    Sounds like an extremely sexy of an offer, so how much would you charge per unit? So I can tell my 500 friends how much to put in. Or how much would you charge to make a detailed checklist of how to do it myself?
