Our Story

For the past 17 years, I have been developing and designing original timepieces for various watch brands complementing my career and passion for designing cars over the past 35 years.  Together with my wife Amy, also a designer for the past 30 years and a Michigan native whose family is from Detroit, it has been our dream to ultimately create our own timepieces thus the Detroit Watch Company was born. Following the success of our 1701 Pontchartrain collection, Pontchartrain Watch Company is our newest stand alone collection alongside DWC.

Our vision to create a watch brand like no other, bringing together our passion for design, love of timepieces, and our esteem for the city of Détroit as founded by a Frenchman, Antoine de la Mothe, sieur de Cadillac.
