Celeste Watch Company

A woman owned company specializing in handcrafted watches.

Situated in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Celeste Watch Company is not your typical watch microbrand. Founded by Celeste Wong, a passionate watch addict and collector since the tender age of 4, and respected engineer, educator and author, (with 22 books to her name, including a best seller,) Celeste Watch Company consists of just Celeste and her assistant.

All of this atelier's watches are assembled in-house, and the meticulous work of laser cutting and inlaying each dial with natural materials such as abalone and mother-of-pearl to make up each dial illustration can take twelve hours or more per watch. The pair also hand-make their locally sourced goatskin watch straps, adding another three hours to the time necessary to produce each timepiece. The end result is a unique and fascinating work of art, with every watch being slightly different to the next.

Celeste's watches that we feature here are all powered by Swiss quartz movements with a 40 month battery life. We're proud to have them on board, heading up our ladies watches section, since this is the first time Celeste has allowed her artisinal watch creations to be retailed by a third party.
