24 year old Ryan Beltran graduated from the University of Oregon in 2011 and moved directly to southern China where he developed a background in manufacturing and product development. After sourcing some products, Ryan decided to start his own brand. Was inspired from his roots growing up in the the pacific northwest (OR) and developed a line of all natural wood and stainless steel watches.
