About Us

Cincinnati Watch Company was formed in 2016 by Rick Bell and Mark Stegman with the goal of producing well built and tastefully designed watches that also support meaningful local community organizations.

Cincinnati Watch Company watches have provided funds to important American institutions like the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, the Freestore Foodbank, and Tri-State Warbird Museum.

Enliven The City of Makers

Rick and Mark’s dream for Cincinnati Watch Company was to grow into a brand that not only supported the community through watches but also participated in bringing watchmaking back to Cincinnati, creating jobs locally for American Watchmakers.

In 2020 this dream was realized for Cincinnati Watch Company with the addition of Jordan Ficklin, new Co-Owner and In-House Watchmaker! Jordan is an accomplished certified Watchmaker, who not only obtained both his WOSTEP diploma and CW21, he spent the last 7 years training future watchmakers at the AWCI as the former Executive Director.

Cincinnati Watch Company Has 3 Guiding Principles:

We Give Back

Cincinnati Watch Company is committed to giving back to the community. A portion of the sale of every watch we produce benefits valuable American non-profit institutions.

We Believe in Design

Cincinnati Watch Company spends years working on a single watch design; appearance, parts, quality of the construction, and ease of serviceability are all considered. We are not using “off the shelf” designs, each watch is a unique custom-developed timepiece.

We Demand Quality

Cincinnati Watch Company uses only Swiss or Japanese made movements known for reliability. Our watches are now assembled, tested, and regulated by our expert In-House Watchmaker Jordan Ficklin, ensuring the watch you receive exceeds your expectations.

Service & Repair Center!

Cincinnati Watch Company is expanding its scope beyond new watch sales to service and repair! Our brand is very unique as we can service, repair, pressure test and refinish your heirloom piece, beater, microbrand, any watch, we are here to get it running like the day it was new!  Click Here for more details.
