Founder / Watchmaker
Mike is a former competitive slope-style and ski-cross skier who found a new path in life after some ski injuries changed his plans. He spent some time trading stocks at an investment bank and later went back to school to become a lawyer; but throughout it all, he maintained a passion for watches. After a few years of making watches for friends and family, he decided to take the leap and turn his hobby into a watchmaking business. In 2011, he officially launched The Stanton Watch Co and began offering limited edition watches. Today, he has grown his watch company into a highly respected boutique watchmaking company based in Summit, NJ. Mike continues to spend his time doing what he loves - building quality timepieces that can be appreciated for generations.
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).
