Welcome to La Touraine
I named La Touraine after the ship that brought my great-grandparents to Ellis Island. My great-grandparents were farmers from northern Italy that decided to save up their money and move to the New World in the 1880’s to begin a new life.
My grandfather went to work with his brother and father in a small town in Pennsylvania. There they opened a silk mill together, where they manufactured silk for over 50 years. My grandfather valued a hard day’s work and wanted the best for the people who worked for him, paying them more than the unions at the time were offering. Like that journey for a young family from Italy, La Touraine represents the spirit of taking risks, making sacrifices, doing what is right - not what is easy, and hard work.
La Touraine watches are made for the explorer, ready to tackle new challenges and build their own destiny. Much like a new family crossing the Atlantic, I want you to find your calling, a better life and build your own legacy. As you build your future, I want to take away one worry: what's on your wrist. I believe everyone should have a great looking watch made with quality materials and have the support to back it up. La Touraine watches are built to last using the best materials available for the price.
When you buy La Touraine, you not only have a watch that looks great, you have years of support behind it.
