The Stetz & Company Story


Josh was 5 years old when he received his first watch as a gift from his grandparents.  It was a Mickey Mouse watch that he wore for years before finally retiring.  “My fascination with mechanical timepieces began in my early teens with a chance encounter at a local antique shop.  I spotted and picked up a nice looking steel dress watch.  When I learned more about the old watch I had rescued I was hooked fueling a parallel love of car design and mechanics.

A vintage watch is a both a connection and a reminder. My personal passion revolves around chronographs from the 1930’s through 60’s, diving watches of the 50’s and 60’s and military watches of the same era.” – Joshua Rankin, Founder
