About

Quality means doing it right when no one is looking. –Henry Ford

Horology and leathercraft have been our family tradition for three generations. Our trade remains unchanged since the 1950s, when my grandfather tailored men's attire and made leather products by hand. He owned a family store and workshop where he taught my father his trade. I started Ground Effect in 2011 and since then have shipped thousands of leather watches to over 50 countries.
Items in our shop are made with the same expertise my father and grandfather possessed and cherished. Our goal is to have happy customers, and to achieve this, we focus on making lasting items that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Thank you for your support.
