Founder / Watchmaker
Mike is the founder and watchmaker of The Stanton Watch Co. He is a former competitive skier (Slopestyle & Skier X) who found a new path in life after some injuries changed his plans. He was introduced to watches when he was young and was always interested in the art of a mechanical timepiece. Mike is self-taught and learned the intricacies of mechanical movements through years of practice assembling movements. Mike started out by making one-off custom watches for friends and family as a hobby while in law school after leaving a job in finance. After a couple years, he decided to turn his passion into a business - - in 2011 he officially launched The Stanton Watch Co and began offering limited edition timepieces under his self-titled brand. Today, he has grown his watch company into a respected independent watchmaking company based in Summit, NJ.
Raised in the greater Philadelphia area, Jimmy (aka Glossblack) is an American graffiti writer who began painting in the early 2000s. Today, with over a decade of work under his belt, he has solidified himself as a nationally recognized practitioner of the art. Today, his work is predominantly in aerosol and oil paint, which always includes dynamic lettering, bold colors, layering techniques, and dedication to cleanliness. He continues to test the boundaries of bold typographic art and although each piece is much different from the next, they are instantly recognizable as his own.
Jimmy continues to inspire us with his vision and creativity. We are proud to call him an Ambassador of our brand and we are proud to be worn on his wrist as he continues to create and inspire. Jimmy currently wears our Newport Edition (Blue Series).
