A lot of you know I’m a fan of unique watches. Five years ago my best friend from college, Kevin, pointed me in the direction of a young upstart watch company. The company, Original Grain, was in the midst of their first Kickstarter campaign.
It would be another year before I received my first Original Grain watch as a gift from my wife, Sara.
Since then I’ve grown my collection and struck up a friendship with their co-founder, Andrew Beltran.
Earlier in August I was able to catch up with Andrew at the company’s headquarters in downtown San Diego.
We talked about the world of start ups, how social media marketing had built the company, and of course, we talk watches.
Thanks for listening.
