Hello from MONRO - our first watch design blog

We're Matt O'Neill & Ryan Ould, two industry professionals, friends and co-founders of MONRO ADVENTURE.

Working together for over a decade for an established Swiss/British brand, we were at the very heart of the watch design and development process for seasonal core collections & licensed global brand collaborations. We were responsible for presenting new product at the annual wonders of Baselworld and travelling to manufacturing partners across the world... and it's safe to say we absolutely love watches!

In-house design & prototyping

Our shared experiences and passion for watch design brought us to the inevitable conclusion that brand ownership was our calling. We established Monro Design Studio Ltd as a consultancy in the pandemic, offering a complete service from design to manufacture, fulfilment and sales for brands wishing to add a watch category to their portfolio. This gave us a foundation to develop what we'd always dreamed of; bringing our own watch collection to life.

Our first concept, born from our adventures and time in the industry together, was to create the ultimate, affordable travel watch and in September 2023 we successfully crowdfunded MONRO ADVENTURE through the incredible support of people who saw our vision and backed our experience. A huge thank you from us both!

Today we are shipping our watches to happy customers across the globe and are proud members of The Alliance of British Watch & Clock Makers. We're looking forward to growing our brand with new collections currently in development and our second design ready to launch through Kickstarter on 13th June 2024.

Thank you for reading our first blog post, we'll be publishing a new series of design insights and concept development through this page over the coming months so stayed tuned for more!

Where will time take you?

Matt & Ryan,
