"We're just two guys who wanted to create something fun and stylish with a great purpose behind it."
So that's exactly what they did, Well Watches was founded by Adam Lopez and Leonard Stauffer in the winter of 2018 after a party that Adam threw for his 30th birthday in which all the proceeds went to charity: water. With help from some friends and local businesses the party raised almost $3,000 to bring clean drinking water to those in need.
Adam knew he was onto something, he dropped Leonard a line and shortly thereafter Well Watches was born.
"The party was really an incredible time, everyone involved was so supportive, I mean, who doesn't like partying for a purpose? I loved the cause so much that I knew we had to do more. After brainstorming with Leonard we decided on watches. Overall, we're just two guys who wanted to create something fun and stylish with a great purpose behind it."
As the company grows, so do the goals, Well Watches is hoping to bring clean water to over 1,000 people by the end of 2022.

We couldn't be happier and more fortunate to do our part to make an impact on a global scale. We're proud to say that we've been able to raise thousands of dollars for the African countries of Mali and Madagascar in an effort to increase their access to clean drinking water.
