It’s no surprise that founder Michael Lembo hails from Waltham, also known as Watch City. His collections for men and women combine elements such as Japanese movement, stainless steel and leather with classic designs for a selection of wristwatches named after some of the city’s most iconic streets. The Exeter, Beacon and Arlington all feature round faces proportionally scaled to timeless bands, proving that unlike most of today’s tickers, bigger isn’t always better.
