About Collective

Collective Horology creates collaborative watches for enthusiasts, and retails independent brands with limited distribution in the US.

Since our founding in 2018, Collective has produced watches together with brands including IWC Schaffhausen, Czapek, URWERK, H. Moser & Cie., Zenith, Armin Strom and J.N. Shapiro.

Additionally, we are an authorized retailer for the following brands: Arcanaut, Fears, Formex, J.N. Shapiro, James Lamb, and Nicholas Hacko Watchmaker.

You can learn more about us and our love of watches from The New York Times, HODINKEE, Forbes and Robb Report.

Online Retail for Watch Enthusiasts

Our goal is simple: Meet the high expectations of watch enthusiasts for online retail.

We've bought way too many watches ourselves, and know the experience is often far from ideal. For that reason, we make it easy to buy online, ensure our inventory is always accurate, ship promptly, offer detailed order tracking, and provide responsive customer service by phone, text or email.

New Watches
For the Fiercely Independent

In addition to our collaborations, we publicly retail a number of independent brands – watchmakers who we believe in, offer a unique perspective, and don’t have a large footprint in the US.

We currently carry the following brands: Arcanaut, Fears, Formex, J.N. Shapiro, James Lamb, and Nicholas Hacko Watchmaker.

Collective is an authorized retailer of all new watches we carry. Orders placed through Collective are priced in US Dollars with no additional import duties required (if shipped to the US), include free overnight shipping within the US, and are covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

Collective Certified Pre-owned
