Smith & Bradley is the brain child of two watch and gear fanatics in Central Illinois; Jerommie Smith and Ryan Bradley. After years of buying, selling, and repairing watches from all over the world we never seemed to find a watch that would last on the wrist for more than three weeks. We wanted Form & Function and we wanted to make watches that most folks could afford but which could still be passed on. So we started our own company. Not shy about a challenge, we also wanted to make our watches right in our Central Illinois hometown. A true American Watch Company. Our goal is simple, convert everybody we meet into a watch fanatic, and to deliver a superior quality watch, with the best possible components, that is both affordable enough to own, and rugged enough to wear. Whether you need weekend warrior dive watch, or fully-functional tactical tool, we want to be a resource for you to consult on a watch purchase--whether you buy from us or not.
