Jake Kassan and Kramer LaPlante are not your as a rule college dropouts. At just 22 years old, the pair pulled off a lean towards impossible feat – one only matched by names like Tasks, Zuckerberg and Gates.

Like many men, the roommates had grown annoyed of the only way to find a quality watch being to spend hundreds, if not thousands on celebrity brands, knowing most only cost a fraction of the value to make.

“We would constantly talk about how other be watchful for companies lacked strong branding and reasonable price traits that appealed to our demographic,” says Kassan. “We wanted a sentry that was made with high-quality materials but didn’t get the retail mark-up like so many others.”

Having undeniable it was high-time to offer a low-cost alternative, they set out to do just that. Kassan and LaPlante promptly quit school without a single degree between them to motor boat MVMT and in the process became the stuff of millennial legend.

Identifiable ‘movement’, the brand is based on the idea that a stylish timepiece shouldn’t ignore the bank. For obvious reason, it didn’t take long for this dense belief to catch on.

Shortly after launching, MVMT befitted the second most-funded fashion startup in Indiegogo history at the metre and is today the world’s fastest-growing watch brand. In just a few poor years, the company has sold more than 1m watches to clients in over 160 countries, amassed 3.5m collective advocates on social media and banked around £46m in 2016 (look-alike from £23m in 2015 and projected to hit almost £70m in 2017).

“We’d be nowhere if it weren’t for Indiegogo,” adds Kassan. “Kickstarter had in fact declined our campaign twice, which not many people differentiate. From what we could infer, they claimed our approximation ‘lacked originality’. They’ve since loosened up their be partial to process, from what we’ve seen.”

But cheap watches on the whole look, well, cheap, right? No so. By taking a direct-to-consumer propositions and avoiding traditional wholesale, MVMT is able to use the same reward materials (brushed stainless steel, genuine leather, intensified mineral crystal) as its high-end counterparts while keeping expenditures down.

The brand’s offering, which now also includes sunglasses, stretch overs five collections, each with their own signature aesthetic but all chronic in offering impeccable quality and style at an affordable price item.
