When you’re looking for work straight out of college, your appearance matters greatly. But how can a man afford to purchase professional-looking accessories and dress to impress when he’s just starting out? The Packs Project has developed the answer–Packs Project.
Based in Los Angeles, the Packs Project was founded by two recent college graduates who saw the need for impressively designed watches that made a distinctive fashion statement but didn’t cost a fortune. Their two timepieces–the Avalon and the Greystone–feature Swiss movements and have handsome details like minimalist faces and embossed genuine leather bands; however, they are priced at just $120 to $150, making them very accessible.
For every Packs watch sold, the Packs Project is committed to giving back to the world. The brand donates 10 percent of the profits from every sale to help build a school in a village in an impoverished area of Burkina Faso through the nonprofit group BuildOn.
The Packs Project launched their new line of luxury watches with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. The group launched their project on December 15, 2015 with a goal of raising $10,000 to begin initial production. On January 15, 2016, the campaign closed out, having generated $10,009 from 55 backers. The rewards from the campaign are expected to ship next month. There is no word yet when Packs Watches will be made available to the general public, but they are likely to begin being sold in the early spring.
