Thumbs up California Watch Co

So I remember reading about this small startup on Kickstarter last year. Looks like they are off to a great start. I like their watch designs and models with several styles and colors to choose from. I decided to buy one and I'm eyeing a couple of more. Great size for me at 46mm. Not huge and not dainty either. And of course, very moderately priced just like I prefer for watches.
Oh well, just thought I'd share for those interested.

I grabbed the 'Maverick'. Also has some decent lume.

Not my cup of tea. And it's way too big in my opinion.

thats a no for me. 36 to 40 mm is a good size for a watch. 42 mm if you are the size of a basketball player.

Not really my taste. Too big and gaudy.

Thanks Basis and Happyjack.

They definitely have some intriguing pieces IMO. And like I said, I'll probably grab a couple of more.

If you like brands like this, check out Shinola watches which are made in Detroit. While a bit more expensive - and conservative (or retro) in styling, you may see something you like.
