Analog Watch Co.
We are a new Philadelphia based design company who thinks different and has a core emphasis on design. Our long term goal would be to create a manufacturing structure here for our own products; producing well designed goods in our amazing city known for it's industrial heritage. The task is complex & requires investment in people, places, & machines. It can be very difficult to manufacture in the US if you have a complicated thing to make - this is why we have curated a video & written series called "Hands On" which showcases local and regional based manufacturers and their capacities. You can see our videos and learn about different manufacturing processes local to Philadelphia on our blog at www.analogwatchco.com/blog. Our objective with the "Hands On" series is to not only understand what kind of manufacturing capacity & resources there are locally, but to also share this in a transparent way with anyone in Philadelphia who wants to make something. We also want to encourage local manufacturers to be willing to take on more small production runs. Another way we think we can help Philly is just by sharing our story & being involved in the local maker/entrepreneur community. Maybe this means more panel discussions where we act as the resident crowd funding experts or hosting Design Philadelphia events in our new showroom. We love this city and want to inspire others with our story, our mission, and our creative expression + we plant a tree for every product we sell!
