When collecting watches, you often come across a brand that you had never heard of or seen before. This is one of the humbling parts of the hobby -- the realization that when it comes to knowing every brand: "You don’t know Jack!" In this article, we want to introduce you to “Jack” (or more specifically the Jack Mason Watch Company) as well as explore some of their current models.
Jack Mason was founded in Dallas, Texas by a pair of friends named, Craig Carter and Michael Reese who shared a passion for making best in class products. With over 25 years of combined experience in the retail industry, they decided to take the leap and establish their own watch brand. In 2013, Jack Mason was launched with a collection of watch and leather goods that combined classic Americana influences with contemporary design, at affordable prices. While the brand continues to evolve, its original mission to bridge the divide between thoughtful design and attainable goods remains strong.
In 2015, the co-founders, along with Creative Director, Peter Cho, introduced the brand’s first products to the public face to face, by driving a custom Airstream trailer across the country. While the company has grown substantially in the past four years, their approach to marketing and enthusiasm for creating quality watches remains the same. The brand has built a strong reputation within the watch community for the value that it provides and has seen its market share steadily rise as a result.
Jack Mason offers six unique and thoughtfully designed collections – Aviation, Nautical, Field, Racing, Diving and Heritage. Their watches are custom-made from top quality materials, including Swiss or Japanese movements, sapphire crystals, and Italian leather straps. Each model is made with care and is protected by a limited lifetime guarantee, to ensure that you enjoy your watch for many years to come. In the following section, we will provide a quick peek at two of their more popular models.
Inspired by iconic designs throughout watchmaking history, the Diver 42mm is a unique take on the classic technical watch. The 316L stainless steel case, featuring a screw-down crown, is assembled and tested for water-resistance of up to 300 meters. The high gloss black dial features Swiss Super-Luminova® markings for high legibility. The black rubber strap is fitted with quick release pins and is compatible with any Jack Mason 22mm strap. This Diver 42mm features mineral crystal and Miyota 2315 movement.
Inspired by the rich history of regatta, the Regatta Timer 42mm is built with a focus on functionality. The 316L stainless steel case is assembled and tested for water-resistance of up to 200 meters. The grey dial elevates the look of this sleek design. The stainless steel bracelet is the perfect complement to the Regatta Timer 42mm. Fitted with quick release pins, the interchangeable strap is compatible with any Jack Mason 22mm strap. This Regatta Timer 42mm features an ISASWISS 8270B movement.
