Our Story

"PROFESSIONAL WATCHES" is a term that came about in the 1950s when Rolex used it to describe watches designed to be utilized in professional situations.

In 2003, Jason Pitsch registered the domain name "professionalwatches.com" as a homage to these types of watches. Using that moniker, he then set out to create a digital alternative to watch forums, which at the time did not exist.

Today, PROFESSIONAL WATCHES is the premiere digital source for important watch launches, hands-on reviews, live trade show coverage and much more.
