The Bozeman Watch Company’s speciality, limited edition watches and accessories will soon fill a downtown Birmingham store, importing a Michigan native’s high-end goods from the Montana and Wyoming showrooms where they’re now sold.
Its handmade time pieces are known for their rugged styling — the B1 Hellcat, Smokejumper GMT and Sidewinder are a few styles that convey manly man adventure. The company is also known for its hand-tooled leather luggage and handbags.
Christopher Wardle, a former Michigan resident started the company in Montana and is expanding from three stores in Bozeman and Whitefish, Montana and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The Birmingham store opens May 1 on Pierce Street in the spot formerly occupied by Stacy Leuliette home accessories, says Ed Nakfoor, spokesman for the Birmingham Principal Shopping District.
Birmingham is a Main Street Oakland County community.
