With Valentine's Day right around the corner, we started thinking about what we could do to make it easy, special and well, domestic, manly and fun. What we came up with is a very special deal on a very special product we know you're going to love!

Thrown Watches were among our top selling gifts of 2014, likely owing to the fact that it makes a handsome prize for Father's Day, graduations, the holidays and, yes, even Valentine's Day. The first physical sample arrived in our office just over 12 months ago and, well, it's been living on our Director of Operations (and Timekeeping)'s wrist ever since.

But at $150, even for a classic timepiece, hand-stitched onto one of Thrown's custom leather bands, we know it's a bit of a leap. So we gave 'em a ring (the company that makes them) and asked what it would take to get them onto everyone's wrist at a price that makes the decision easy. Crowdsourcing the project - the way we do some of our own, more innovative items - was the obvious answer.

Once the project reaches 100% we'll unlock them at almost 50% off AND get them shipped to everyone with plenty of time before the big day. What could be better?


Brooklyn's Throne Watches began with a simple plan: Breathe new life into vintage watch faces by partnering them with handmade Horween leather straps. By doing so, Throne Watches rescues beautiful timepieces that would otherwise be lost to a second hand store shelf or the deep end of a junk drawer. The end result is a classic accessory with a contemporary vibe, always displaying an exemplary portrait of handsome ruggedness. 

Vintage Timex Watch 100% Refurbished in America.

Horween should need no introduction, but for the uninitiated, Horween Leather Company is one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the United States. Located in Chicago, it was founded in 1905 and is known to this day for it's rich, full grain leathers, unique hues and fabulous, rugged yet refined textures.


By bundling a significant pile of orders we've been able to secure The Trusty Timepiece for nearly half of what it normally costs… and, as always, we're passing the savings on!

ONE AMAZING RETURN POLICY (YES, even on this pre-funded item)

We're pre-funding them to keep the price down, but if for any reason if you're not 100% satisfied, we are happy to accept undamaged returns for store credit within 30 days of receiving your order. Return shipping is on us for domestic orders. Easy, right?

Pre-funding saves you money

Flint and Tinder cuts out the middle man (no one likes him) then goes a step further by matching supply with demand to reduce waste. It all adds up to a premium, domestically produced product at nearly half the cost of our competitors. Smart, right?

You back it, we make it just for you!

We'll charge your credit card at checkout for all items and ship any in-stock items attached to your order straight away. Then as soon as the project hits its funding goal we'll begin manufacturing the pre-funded items for delivery by their estimated ship date!

FUN FACT: Flint and Tinder is the most successful crowd-funded fashion company of all time! New products are launched several times per month.

Frequently asked questions

Do we accept returns on pre-funded items? Taking returns can be tricky as we've made the item just for you. Still, Flint and Tinder will bend over backward to make you happy -- it's just who we are. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, feel free to return the unworn product using the enclosed shipping label for store credit.

What to do if the size I want isn't available? Sometimes to create further efficiency products need to be manufactured in sets using a specific ratio of each size. If the size you want is no longer available, sign up for our email list and we'll keep you updated on re-stocks and new product launches.
