Meet Rich and Katie

Rich is the brains behind the watches. By day, he is a professional watch dealer. By night, he is a fiiiiine home cook. His favorite snack is a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich.

Katie is the brains behind the brand. By day, she is an art director at the creative agency, Wieden+Kennedy. By night, she is #1 fan of Rich's fiiiiiine cooking. Her favorite snack is NACHOS! With goopy cheese!

They run Welsbro from their Portland, Oregon kitchen.

Meet Kenkichi

Meet Kenkichi

Kenkichi is the brains behind the watch design. By day, he is a watchmaker: designing new dials and hand assembling each Welsbro from his workshop in Yamaguchi, Japan. By night, he's into music — techno and electronica are among his favorite genres. His favorite snacks are chocolate and traditional Japanese sweets like kintsuba, dorayaki and daifuku mochi.

Fun fact: both Rich and Kenkichi are sons of watchmakers.

Meet Tony

Meet Tony

Tony is the boss / unofficial mascot of Welsbro. By day, he is an avid fetcher (despite his blindness). By night, he is an avid sleeper. His favorite snacks are salmon, popcorn or anything that falls on the floor.
