What is a private label watch?

A private label watch refers to a watch that is manufactured by one company but branded and sold by another company as if they had made it.

  • A private label watch is designed, produced and shipped in bulk to a client company, which then applies its own branding and logo design to the watch before distributing and selling it to consumers under its own company name.
  • The manufacturing of the watch is handled by an ODM or OEM, while the client company purchasing these unlabeled watches in bulk is the one bringing the products to retail under its own brand.
  • Private label watches allow retailers, distributors, importers and entrepreneurs to sell watches under their own brand name without having to manufacture the products themselves. They only need to customize and market the watches to consumers.
  • By outsourcing production to an established OEM/ODM watch manufacturer, the client company can enjoy saved costs in research, manufacturing, and inventory while focusing more on sales, marketing, and building brand awareness in order to maximize profits.

A private label watch enables a company to sell a watch under its own branding that has actually been manufactured by another watch supplier/factory that specializes in making watches to be resold by its clients. This allows for easy market entry without many upfront investments.

Launching Your Watch Brand Journey - ODM vs OEM

The first pivotal step when building your own watch brand is deciding whether to customize a pre-existing watch design (ODM) or craft a new timepiece from the ground up (OEM). Both routes promise rewarding outcomes but differ in development process and time investments.

Private Watch Label Considerations

There are a few points to consider once you’re certain you want to make Private Label Watches. 

  • What is your overall budget for your project?
  • What price do you want to pay per watch?
  • What price do you want to sell each watch for?
  • How many of watch styles would you like to produce?
  • Do you only want a prototype?
  • Do you want to take a prototype all the way to production?
  • Do you have any specs for this watch? (Material: Stainless Steel, Titanium, etc., Movement, Case Size, Glass Type, Dial Design, Band Type, etc.)
  • Do you have any visual references?
  • When do you want the watches to arrive in your hands?
  • Do you know if you want an ODM or OEM process?

Once you have these questions answered, you are ready to move on to the next phase.
