Bark and Benjamin is a company started by three brothers Hassan, Hasnain, and Salman while they were in college. The company is based in the DC metro area and primarily focuses on creating high-quality wood and stainless steel timepieces. Hassan, Hasnain, and Salman were first inspired to create the watch after seeing the lack of a market for high-quality timepieces priced within the range of $100-$300. The company just the manufacturing of its first watch collection, an automatic wood and stainless steel watch that will be priced at $280 post-Kickstarter. The primary focus of the design is to provide an aesthetic appeal that a user can feel confident about wearing in any setting whether it be formal or informal. The company will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on April 17, 2017. The links to the company's Kickstarter preview page and media kit are posted below.
