A number of Croatian companies are starting to penetrate into global markets, and one of those is wrist watch brand Urban Watch…

After 5 years of toil and hard work, Urban Watch is slowly becoming another successful Croatian brand on the world market. It all started in 2010 when young and creative married couple Antonija and Ivan Petrović decided to come with the idea of creating their own brand of modern and high quality watches at affordable prices.

The initial reaction to their products had been excellent in Europe and the USA, and today the couples watches can be found under the trademark Urban Watch in every corner of the world.

“The idea was to create a product which would with its design, quality and affordability, conquer global markets. Urban Watch you can purchase from 540 kuna (79 USD). Currently we have 18 women’s and men’s models from the last Paris Collection. We offer a wide range of leather straps in various colours which can be specially ordered, so that buyers, by combining, can have different types of watches,” Antonija and Ivan explained to Tportal.

The pair have attracted great interest from worldwide partners.

“We believe that our story is an attractive one, and the price of our watches are very competitive and that is why Urban Watch is the only Croatian brand of watches that have successfully penetrated world markets. Each new collection is inspired by global trends and the reaction has been positive,” they added.

Besides web-shops, Urban Watch have partners in the UK, Portugal and the United States who are authorised to represent the brand in their respective markets.

“Our goal is not to follow trends, but to set them. Urban Watch is a 100% independent brand, designed and created with love.”
