Top 5 Reasons to Give a H+G Watch this Season

December 08, 2016

1. Born in the South

Hook+Gaff Watch Company, located in the Carolinas, was created to be an American business that follows the American dream. Our watches are hand-assembled from our own designs by 3rd generation watchmakers in High Point, North Carolina. It is essential to our mission to produce every component possible in the United States. We are constantly seeking new Southern makers to partner with, all in the effort to create a superior timepiece showcasing the beautiful craftsmanship and quality componentry from our own backyard.

2. A Supportive Small Business

Focusing our production and componentry to revive the United States watch industry isn’t enough for us. We’re dedicated to supporting small businesses through our retailers and helping their surrounding communities. A percentage of our military-inspired watch sales is donated to operation WetVet.

3. Product Variety

We offer both quartz and mechanical watch movements, with the addition of the new Fleetmaster mechanical Swiss movement watch. The six dial options in our Sportfisher II series, our products can satisfy a range styles and pursuits. Also, our watches can be customized and accessorized with straps in four materials and over 20 colors choices. Design a custom watch and strap combination for a special someone on your list today.

4. Durability

It’s proven that our watches are tougher than the rest. We construct our watches with the strongest materials and have anglers test our watches in extreme conditions. Fishing legend, Carter Andrews, has put his Sportfisher II watch to the test while filming his TV Show, The Obsession. He’s worn the watch around the globe.  


A Hook+Gaff is the only watch a person needs. It’s the ideal mix of style and strength. It’s the perfect watch for the office that doubles as the supreme outdoorsman’s accessory.

I sat down with Hook+Gaff president and founder Michael Sims to discuss working on a project that would interest our social media followers and customers. We wanted to do a few things. First, we wanted to show everyone what the Hook+Gaff lifestyle is all about a passion for the outdoors. Second, we wanted to generate some incredible content and footage from our trips, so we made plans to pack camera equipment and a drone. And last, we wanted to do something fun — but in a way that would put some pressure on us to get the job done. And that was the catch.
