"HELLO,

I JUST WANTED TO SEND A NOTE ABOUT THE CARPENTER WATCH I PURCHASED FROM YOU, THE BRONZE WHITE DIAL. I HAVE WORN IT FOR SOME TIME NOW, AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. IT IS BEAUTIFULLY MADE, AND THE BROZE PATINA KEEPS DEVELOPING MORE BEAUTIFUL AS IT AGES. I HAVE A SMALL COLLECTION OF VARIOUS WATCHES INCLUDING HAMILTON, TAG, TISSOT, BUT THE CARPENTER IS BY FAR MY FAVOURITE. THANK YOU FOR MAKING SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL!"

"HELLO MR. CARPENTER & CO.,

JUST A QUICK NOTE TO TELL YOU THAT I JUST RECEIVED MY 2019 M1B ( #021/250. I WAITED A LONG TIME FOR THIS. WOW, I WAS EXCITED OPENING THE BOX! THE PACKAGING WAS SO CLASSY THAT I FELT THE SAME WHEN I OPENED MY SPEED-MASTER FOR THE FIRST TIME. MR. CARPENTER, LET ME TELL YOU ...... WHAT A STUNNING DESIGN FOR A FIELD WATCH. AESTHETICALLY BALANCED, THE WATCH IS VERY PLEASING TO THE EYE. NOT TOO MUCH CLUTTER ON THE FACE YET ENOUGH DETAILS TO KEEP IT INTERESTING TO LOOK AT. I AM VERY PLEASED! THE SIZE OF THE CASE + LUGS SIT WELL AND BALANCED ON MY WRIST. THE STRAP, THE CHOICE OF LEATHER, STYLING (NO TAPER), STITCHING AND BUCKLE QUALITIES COMPLEMENT THE CASE VERY WELL. GOOD JOB, SIR. AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, I AM BEYOND WORDS AND VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PURCHASE. IN FACT, I AM ABOUT TO GO ADD THE BLACK FACE+ BLACK STRAP IN THE CART AFTER I FINISH THIS EMAIL :)

THANK YOU, NEIL AND CO. YOU HAVE A GREAT WATCH!

BEST,"

JOSEPH HENSEN

"HI,

I AM A WOMAN LOVER OF MEN’S WATCHES AND FOUND YOUR M9 BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH TO BE ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING! I KNOW THAT THEY ARE CURRENTLY SOLD OUT, BUT IS THERE A CHANCE THAT MORE WILL BE RELEASED LATER ON IN THE FUTURE? I JUST WANT TO SEE IF IT MAY BE FUTILE TO CONTINUOUSLY CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR RESTOCKS. THANKS SO MUCH!"

JENNIFER TANGERT

"HELLO,

I’VE LOVED THIS WATCH SINCE GETTING IT, ITS BEEN A STAPLE PIECE IN MY DAY TO DAY WEAR AND I’VE NEVER BEEN SO ATTACHED TO ANY OF MY WATCHES BEFORE. I’VE HAD PLENTY OF COMPLEMENTS REGARDING THE WATCH AND MANY INQUIRES ABOUT WHERE TO PURCHASE IT TOO (CURRENTLY ONE OF THE GUYS I WORK WITH ARE WAITING FOR ANOTHER RELEASE OF THE FIELD WATCHES WITH A WHITE FACE)."

MATTHEW PRETORIUS

"NEIL,

I GOT MY WATCH AND HAVE BEEN WEARING EVERYDAY. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW HAPPY I AM WITH IT. I RECEIVE COMPLIMENTS ON IT ALMOST DAILY WITH THE BEST BEING; “I LIKE SHINOLA’S BUT THAT CARPENTER IS REALLY SOMETHING”.

BY THE WAY, SHOULD I BE CLEANING THE BRASS CASE AND IF SO, HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND?

THANKS,"

ROB LINDSEY

"I RECEIVED THE WATCH IN GREAT SHAPE; I’M REALLY GRATEFUL NOT ONLY FOR SUCH A HANDSOME WATCH, BUT FOR THE TERRIFIC CUSTOMER SERVICE. WELL DONE, ALL THE WAY AROUND."

BILL HALGREN

"I GOTTA SAY, I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS WATCH AS SOON AS I SAW IT. YOU’VE DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH THEM. THE BRASS, BLACK FACE, AND LEATHER ARE SO ATTRACTIVE AND UNDERSTATED. IF FEELS APPROPRIATE FOR ANY OCCASION. THE PACKAGING AND THE BRASS PLATE ARE SUCH A GREAT TOUCH.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK."

TOM SMITH

“I LOVE THE STRAP AND INTEND ON ENJOYING IT. THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE FOR. THE SLIGHT DOME JUST MARRIED WELL WITH THE ROUNDED SHAPE OF THE CASE TOO. IT ALL FLOWS WELL TOGETHER. A VERY COHESIVE DESIGN OVERALL. THE CASE FINISH IS VERY NICE TOO, AND ALTHOUGH I USUALLY DON’T O POLISHED SS, IT JUST WORKS HERE!"

BRICE HERAIL

"AND ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE…

I’VE WEAR THE WATCH, SINCE I’VE BOUGHT IT ON JULY 2016 AND HAVE NOT REPLACED IT WITH MY OTHER ONES EVER SINCE.

IT IS TRULY CAPTIVATING, THE SIMPLICITY OF THE DESIGN FROM ONE HAND TO ATTENTION TO DETAILS FROM THE OTHER HAND, IT HAS LEFT A TRUE MARK WITH ME ON A DAILY BASIS, AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR IT.

KIND REGARDS"

YARON

"JUST RECEIVED MY WATCH. WOW! IT IS BEAUTIFUL. CANNOT BELIEVE THIS WATCH IS SELLING FOR THE PRICE IT IS. I HAVE ALL SORTS OF WATCHES FROM BRAUN TO ROLEX, THEY WILL ALL BE JELOUS NOW. WHATEVER WITCHCRAFT YOU ARE USING, I HOPE YOU CREATE OTHER WATCHES."

PRIVATE

"TAKING A FEW MINUTES TO TELL YOU THAT’ I’VE RECEIVED MY WATCH, AND I DO HAVE TO SAY IT’S A THING OF BEAUTY! THE UNBOXING EXPERIENCE IS AMAZING, I LITTERALLY SMILED THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH, AND THE WATCH IS TRULY A WORK OF ART. IT IS RAW, SOLID, RELIABLE, BEAUTIFUL AND IT RESONATES QUALITY. EVERYTHING YOU COULD EXPECT FROM A WATCH. I REALLY APPRECIATE BEAUTIFUL WORK AND SO I SAY KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK."

BEST REGARDS,"

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! MY WIFE PRESENTED ME WITH THE BEAUTIFUL CARPENTER M15. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A UNIQUE, WELL-DESIGNED, QUALITY FIELD WATCH, WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE A SECOND MORTGAGE, FOR QUITE A WHILE NOW. THE M15 IS MORE THAN I HOPED FOR! IT FEELS GREAT ON THE WRIST AND THE ELEGANCE OF THE DESIGN IS EVEN GREATER IN REAL LIFE. WEARING IT SOMEHOW FEELS LIKE BEING PART OF A STORY AND IN MY OPINION BEATS WEARING ANY WELL-KNOWN BRAND.

I WILL DEFINITELY STOP BY THE SHOP NEXT TIME I AM IN NYC."

STEFAN

"NEIL,

M14 #33 HAS ARRIVED AND I AM OVER THE MOON!
SPECTACULAR DESIGN SIR.
IT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.
I WISH YOU AND YOUR TEAM MUCH SUCCESS IN THE FUTURE SIR AND THANK YOU!"

GENE

"NEIL,

JUST A QUICK NOTE TO SAY THAT I GOT THE WATCH AND I LOVE IT. ALREADY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM AND TAGGED CARPENTER WATCHES. THE WATCH ITSELF IS BEAUTIFUL AND EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR... IT’S ALMOST LIKE A HYBRID BETWEEN A TRADITIONAL FIELD WATCH AND A BAUHAUS STYLE, LIKE THE MAX BILL. REALLY WELL MADE...

ONE THING YOU SHOULD HYPE MORE ABOUT YOUR WATCHES IS THE PACKING MATERIALS. THEY ARE EXQUISITE FOR A WATCH IN THIS PRICE RANGE. THE WOODEN HAND MADE BOX, THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL, THE METAL WARRANTY CARD (LIKE A DOG TAG WITH SOME PATINA) - ALL FIRST CLASS...

THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING..."

MATT GANNON

"EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE BUYING A CARPENTER WATCH HAS BEEN AMAZING. FROM RESEARCHING AND READING REVIEWS TO OPENING THE GORGEOUS PACKAGING TODAY; WHAT A SPECIAL GIFT. I CANNOT WAIT TO GIVE THIS WATCH TO MY SON, JAY.

THANK YOU,"

JACKIE O

 

"SORRY FOR THE DELAY I WAS IN A MEETING AND JUST NOW GETTING FREE TO RESPOND

YES IT DOES ARRIVE SAFELY I LOVE IT AND I AM SO GRATEFUL AGAIN FOR HOW SPEEDILY AND GRACIOUSLY YOU HELP ME EXPEDITE THIS SPECIAL PURCHASE

HOPEFULLY YOU WILL KEEP ME IN THE LOOP OF ANY FUTURE PRODUCTS

HAVE A GREAT DAY!"

PHILLIP

“NEIL DID ONE HELL OF A JOB IN THE FINISHING OF THIS WATCH. YOU CAN REALLY FEEL HOW MUCH IT DIFFERS OVER IT’S RIVALS. THE CARPENTER TACTICAL DIAL WITH ALWAYS LEGIBLE HEAT BLUED HANDS AND HOW IT SITS ON THE WRIST! NOT TO MENTION THE DOMED SAPPHIRE MAKES IT A PLEASANT PRESENCE ON THE WRIST. THE OEM STRAP IS TOO GOOD, I’M AFRAID OF AGING IT SO I CHANGE IT WITH A FEW STRAPS HERE AND THERE. IT REALLY IS EXTREMELY VERSATILE."

MATT THE TURK

"I FORGET WHEN I FIRST SAW THE BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH BUT I WAS INSTANTLY SMITTEN, PROBABLY ON SOME DESIGN BLOG. THE STYLE, FORM, PROPORTION, AND DETAILS, THE MODERN TAKE ON VINTAGE STYLING. I NEEDED ONE BUT LACKED A REASON JUMP IN, I HESITATED AND THEN THEY SOLD OUT. AROUND THE TIME I FOUND OUT MY WIFE WAS DUE WITH MY SON I SAW THAT THE M7 WAS GOING TO BE RELEASED AND I KNEW THAT I WANTED TO COMMEMORATE HIS BIRTH WITH THIS WATCH AND THEN EVENTUALLY GIVE IT TO HIM... IT ALSO DIDN’T HURT THAT MY WIFE’S MIDDLE NAME IS CARPENTER AND MY ENTIRE FAMILY IS FROM BROOKLYN!

SO AFTER MY LITTLE GUY WAS BORN AND WE CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL I TOOK THE M7 OUT OF THE CLOSET AND THE BOX IT HAD BEEN SITTING IN SINCE IT ARRIVED. AFTER TAKING IT OUT OF THE BOX I REALIZED THE DATE ON THE WATCH WAS ON 19. MY SON WAS BORN ON JUNE, 19TH. THE TIME WAS STOPPED AT 7:10, THE TIME WE ARRIVED THE HOSPITAL. I WAS STUNNED, I JUST DON’T BELIEVE IN THIS KIND OF THING HAPPENING. I HAD TO SHOW MY WIFE TO MAKE SURE I WASN’T GOING CRAZY. ONE HELL OF A COINCIDENCE OR A SIGN…EITHER WAY I AM ENAMORED WITH THIS WATCH AND IT HAS BECOME VERY SPECIAL TO ME.

BEST,

PS...GOOD LUCK WITH THE NEW WATCH LAUNCH!"

JOSH

"THANKS FOR GETTING BACK TO ME SO QUICKLY AND I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE ORDER WAS RECEIVED.

I MUST SAY, AS GORGEOUS AND ELEGANT AS THIS PIECE LOOKED IN PICTURES IT IS BEYOND EXPECTATIONS IN PERSON.

IT’S TRULY GREAT TO SEE SUCH MINIMALISTIC AND UTILITARIAN DESIGN BEING MADE RIGHT HERE IN THE US. IT HONESTLY FEELS LIKE THIS IS HOW THE WRISTWATCH INDUSTRY USED TO BE WHEN HIGH QUALITY SIMPLE MECHANICAL MOVEMENT WRISTWATCHES WERE MADE FOR EVERY MAN. NOT JUST PEOPLE WHO HAVE WAY TOO MUCH MONEY TO BURN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH AND I WISH YOU THE BEST OF SUCCESS IN YOUR FUTURE DESIGNS AND ENDEAVORS."

ITAI SUEZ

"MY WATCH ARRIVED (M2S). IT IS FLAWLESS. TERRIFIC CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ENCOURAGING THAT QUALITY PRODUCTS CAN BE DESIGNED LOCALLY. A NICE SURPRISE WAS THE PRESENTATION BOX (MORE CRAFTSMANSHIP) WHICH EVEN INCLUDES A TOOL FOR MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE STRAP. IT’S LIKE A THROWBACK TO ANOTHER ERA WHEN PRODUCTS WERE MADE TO LAST. "

ANTHONY ("BROOKLYN")

"I HAVE RECEIVED THE WATCH IN TIME AS INDICATED : VERY SHORT DELIVERY, WITHIN 2 DAYS = AMAZING …

THE WATCH IS REALLY BEAUTIFULL, VERY WELL CRAFTED, AS « OLD TIME HAND-MADE WATCHES » WITH A SUPERB CYLINDER OF METAL ALL AROUND THE WATCH, SUPERB VINTAGE LEATHER TOO, I REALLY LOVE THAT WATCH … ALTHOUGH I HAVE PLENTY OF GOOD WATCHES ON THE OTHER HAND (PANERAI, LONGINES TONNEAU, ETC.).

MANY THANKS FOR THE QUALITY AND THIS ORIGINAL DESIGN !!!

BEST REGARDS FROM FRANCE …"

PHILIPPE GOMEZ

"HI NEIL,

I FINALLY GOT THE WATCH.

THE PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE AND INSTAGRAM ARE REALLY GOOD BUT THEY JUST DON’T DO JUSTICE TO HOW BEAUTIFUL THE WATCH IS.
IT LOOKS, FEELS AND WEARS JUST PERFECT.
I WAS LOOKING AT MANY ESTABLISHED BRANDS TO START OFF MY WATCH COLLECTION BUT SOMEHOW I KEPT COMING BACK TO YOUR WATCH.
SO GLAD ABOUT MY DECISION.
NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL MY FUTURE WATCH COLLECTION WOULD BE, THIS WATCH WILL ALWAYS BE SPECIAL TO ME AS IT MARKS THE BEGINNING OF MY COLLECTION.

GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVORS."

FENIL PAREKH

"HELLO,

"WHILE BROWSING PINTEREST I CAME ACROSS A WATCH THAT CAUGHT MY EYE! ON A CHANCE I CALLED THE NUMBER AND TO MY SURPRISE WAS ABLE TO SPEAK PERSONALLY WITH NEIL CARPENTER THE
" HOROLOGIST "OF CARPENTER WATCHES.

WHAT A THRILL TO ACTUALLY TALK TO THE CREATOR AND ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR PRODUCING THE EXCELLENT TIME PIECE HE HAS NAMED THE BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH.
FROM THE TIME IT ARRIVED IN THE ATTRACTIVE WOODEN PRESENTATION BOX I HAVE PUT ASIDE ALL OF MY OTHER WATCHES AND NOW THIS IS MY ONLY TIME PIECE!!

THAT FASCINATION BECAME CONTAGIOUS SPREADING TO FRIENDS FAMILY AND COMPLETE STRANGERS SITTING NEXT TO ME IN RESTAURANTS. AS A RESULT I HAVE ENDED UP PURCHASING ONE FOR BOTH OF MY SONS AND MY SON-IN-LAW.
MY ORIGINAL INTENTION WAS THE BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH WOULD BE ONE OF MY COLLECTION THAT COULD BE INCLUDED FOR MY CHILDREN'S INHERITANCE.

HOWEVER AFTER THEIR ENCOUNTER WITH MY NEW WATCH IT BECAME APPARENT THE BEST WAY TO PREVENT FUTURE FAMILY STRIFE WAS TO SEE THAT EACH WOULD HAVE THEIR OWN BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH.


THE CONCERN I HAVE NOW IS WITH MY TWO GRANDSON’S. THEY ARE INTRIGUED BY BEING ABLE TO SEE HOW A REAL TIME PIECE OPERATES BY THE DISPLAY AVAILABLE ON THE BACK.... LOOKS LIKE I WILL BE MAKING TWO MORE CALLS TO MY NEWFOUND CREATIVE FRIEND "HOROLOGIST"NEIL CARPENTER!
IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF A TRULY RELIABLE WATCH THAT IS HANDSOMELY DESIGNED OR LIKE MYSELF APPRECIATE TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP THE BROOKLYN FIELD WATCH IS A "MUST HAVE"

PHILLIP PAINO

"I JUST RECEIVED MY WATCH TODAY AND I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER TO RECEIVE SERIAL NUMBER 2! THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL HERE IS QUITE AMAZING AND I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH IT. THANKS SO MUCH AND I WISH YOU GUYS ALL THE BEST BUILDING YOUR COMPANY.

REGARDS,"

BLAKE

"I GOT THE WATCHES TODAY AND AM BLOWN AWAY WITH THE PRESENTATION. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE AND I AM VERY TOUCHED! I GUESS WE CAN START ON MY WATCH NOW...THANK YOU SO MUCH... IT WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE AND I WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND YOU!"

BRIAN MISHER

"I RECEIVED MY M14 CARPENTER WATCH A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND I REALLY LOVE IT. IT’S THE KIND OF WATCH THAT FEELS LIKE IT COULD LAST FOREVER. THE COMBINATION OF SOLID BRASS AND NAVY BLUE FACE IS REALLY ELEGANT AND TIMELESS. I SHOWED IT TO MY 14 YEAR OLD SON AND EXPLAINED TO HIM THAT THE WATCH IS A LIMITED EDITION. NUMBER 34 OF 75. IN THIS WORLD OF HIGHLY DISPOSABLE ITEMS HE UNDERSTOOD RIGHT THE WAY THE VALUE OF SOMETHING WELL MADE AND LIMITED IN SUPPLY. HE WILL INHERIT THE M14 ONE DAY AND I HOPE IT STAYS IN OUR FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.

THANK YOU.

PS: 40MM FEELS GOOD. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED GOING SLIGHTLY BIGGER (42MM) INSTEAD OF SMALLER?"

PRIVATE

"SO I PICKED UP THE LAST REMAINING FIELD WATCH (WHITE FACE) WHEN I BOUGHT SOME GREAT BOOTS AT HELM IN JANUARY. THERE WAS THIS LOVELY WATCH SITTING ON THE COUNTER TOP - HARD TO RESIST. LAST ONE, DEMO MODEL PERHAPS, SO I GOT A GOOD DEAL.

I’VE BEEN REALLY PLEASED WITH IT, DELIGHTED BY YOUR CRAFTSMANSHIP, AND EVERY DETAIL - INCLUDING THE PACKAGING AND EVEN THE LITTLE BLACK METAL PERSONAL GUARANTEE CARD.

SEVERAL OF MY WATCH COLLECTOR FRIENDS HAVE BEEN INTRIGUED BY THE WATCH, NONE OF THEM HAD HEARD OF YOU, AND A COUPLE HAVE BOUGHT SINCE.

JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS FOR A FANTASTIC WATCH NEIL, GREAT JOB. HOPING TO PICK UP ANOTHER FROM YOU BUT NOTICE ALMOST EVERYTHING ON WEBSITE SOLD OUT! (WELL DONE!) DO PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT MAY BE DESTINED TO COME TO SWITZERLAND FOR ME! (I’LL BE BACK WORKING A FEW DAYS IN THE USA AGAIN OVER NEXT FEW MONTHS)

MANY THANKS, HAVE A GOOD DAY,"

ANDREW

"NEIL, M 15 FANTASTIC! BETTER THAN EXPECTED! VERY VERY NICE AND I’M NOT EVEN A “WATCH PERSON” BUT NOW WEARING IT CONSTANTLY. GREAT DESIGN, FUNCTION AND FEEL.

ONE TINY SUGGESTION - INFORM YOUR CUSTOMERS THAT THERE IS PROTECTIVE PLASTIC ON THE BACK AND FACE OF THE WATCH. I WAS THINKING THERE WERE IMPERFECTIONS IN THE CRYSTAL UNTIL I REALIZED THAT AN ALMOST INVISIBLE PLASTIC SHIELD WAS COVERING THE FACE. AND WHAT AM I TO DO WITH THE TOOL THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE FANTASTIC BOX? I’M A WOOD WORKER SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THE BOX - GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP!

I UNDERSTAND THAT NO MORE BRASS FOR 2018 BUT WHEN DO YOU SUSPECT THAT BRASS WILL BE AVAILABLE?

VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE - ONE OF THE BEST I’VE EVER DONE, AND SIGHT UNSEEN. GREAT JOB! I WISH ALL CONTINUED SUCCESS!

KIND REGARDS"
