NEIL CARPENTER

NEIL CARPENTER, FOUNDER AND DESIGNER OF CARPENTER WATCHES, GRADUATED FROM SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN, WHERE HE FOCUSED ON BOTH INDUSTRIAL AND FURNITURE DESIGN. IN HIS CAREER AS A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT DESIGNER, HE HAS WORKED WITH A MULTITUDE OF HOUSE-HOLD BRAND NAMES, CREATING FUNCTIONAL OBJECTS OF BEAUTY.

NEIL’S APPRECIATION OF TIMEPIECES BEGAN AT THE AGE OF 6, WHEN HE WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO HIS FAMILY’S EXTENSIVE ANTIQUE POCKET WATCH COLLECTION. CONSISTING LARGELY OF AMERICAN BRANDS SUCH AS ELGIN, ILLINOIS, WALTHAM AND HAMILTON, NEIL WAS DRAWN IN BY THE STORIES EACH TOLD, THEIR UNIQUE PATINAS AND THE MECHANICAL WONDERMENT INSIDE. 

CARPENTER WATCHES REPRESENTS THE CONFLUENCE OF NEIL’S TRAINING WITH HIS LIFE-LONG INTEREST IN HOROLOGY. THE GOAL OF CARPENTER WATCHES IS TO PROVIDE INDIVIDUALS WITH A TIMEPIECE OF STYLE AND TASTE THAT NODS TO THE POCKET WATCHES THAT FUELED NEIL’S CURIOSITY. AND LIKE HIS FAMILY’S OWN COLLECTION, HE HOPES EACH CARPENTER WATCH WILL BECOME AN HEIRLOOM IN ITS OWN TIME.
