Our Story

Founder Jennifer Zhang began assembling watches as a hobby in college. she ended up falling in love with the process, but not with the inefficiencies in the watchmaking process. Jennifer ended up creating the kit she wish she had when building that first watch.

Rotate Watches has been in the works since 2017. Two years of preparation and product development and dozens of suppliers went into the final launch of Rotate in 2019. Since them, Rotate has had a heavy emphasis on the customer – taking every piece of feedback and making improvements to every aspect of the company, from the part to the cools to the user guide!
