“Entrepreneur is not a title but a mindset. It requires a good dose of madness for an incredibly rewarding life” said Vincenzo Carrara, co-founder and CEO of Todd & Marlon LLC. “Entrepreneurs are amazing people and the most successful ones are master of time management. With #YOURTIME watches we wanted to celebrate their work and achievements. #YOURTIME is also a call to action for all the ‘want to be’ entrepreneurs. We want them to make the first step in the long and often difficult journey that brings to success and we want to accompany them with #YOURTIME watches and much more…”
The Entrepreneurial Spirit is what inspired the first collection of Todd & Marlon watches. The attitude of actively seeking for change, rather than waiting to adapt to change led to the ideation of the dial design and the 24 hour movement. We believe that one can drive change only if he/she can see and understand the full picture. Change needs to happen now and having a full perspective of the day is paramount to make it happen … but #YOURTIME is much more than that!
#YOURTIME is a celebration of the Entrepreneurial Spirit and the video by Scott Hurtado (click on image above to read full post with video) can explain better than words what we mean for that.

Jeremiah Dillon (Head of Product Marketing, Google Apps for Work) recently wrote an email to his team that posed a very simple yet thoughts provoking challenge in time management.
In this post you might find that letter as well as a video made by his colleagues that in a certain way explains the letter. We found it quite motivating hence worth sharing.
Happy reading and happy view.
#YOURTIME has been carefully crafted for the people who want to seize the day no matter what. With a 24 hours dial this unique timepiece allows you taking your time and enjoying every moment of the day. Having the entire day at a glance also helps better planning and organizing events – perfect for a busy person or someone who wants to live life to the fullest!
Every second count and having an accurate view of the time is a must. For their first timepiece Todd & Marlon have selected a Swiss Made movement because of its quality and a Quartz mechanism for its reliability and accuracy over time. This specific caliber is made of hundreds of parts (including 1 jewel) and it has been customized to fit the specific 24H dial of #YOURTIME watch.
A pure concentrate of Swiss Precision!
Enjoying the day might take many different angles and a robust and solid watch is paramount. #YOURTIME is the perfect timeless companion for every venture. Fiery and intense the first Todd & Marlon timepiece showcases Italian Design and Swiss Precision.
#YOURTIME has a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) treatment for achieving a super resistant black matte finish, it has the most resistant crystal made of Sapphire and just to make sure every moment is viable the watch is also resistant to water (10atm/100m).
Handsomely crafted #YOURTIME iconic shape has been designed to suit sport, casual and business situations. The 38mm case has a sophisticated and elegant silhouette yet it is boldly shaped to resist extreme activities. The dial is made of two layers brushed in different contrasting directions to underline the difference between day and night hours as emphasized also by the sleek silver sun and moon icons applied at noon and midnight positions respectively. The custom made bracelet with Diamond Like Carbon treatment subtly reminds the brand logo.
Impeccable Italian Design!
The natural day/night division of a day is the reason why each day is split into two 12 hours cycles. The Egyptian used to have a 12 hour sundial for the day and 12 hour water clock for night time.
Since then many different types of watches have been developed: some with 2 x 12 hour dial (i.e. double-XII system) others with 24 hour dial. However, the dial that became the norm has only 12 hour marks and its cycle is repeated twice during the day.
We believe that a watch should reflect the natural day/night division hence shows a 2 x 12 hour dial. #YOURTIME is a 24 hour watch - this means that the hour hand complete a full rotation every 24 hours. The dial shows the anti-meridian (am) hours on the left hand side and the post-meridian (pm) hours on the right hand side. The zenith for the sun is reached at 12:00 and is at the top of the dial.
Having the entire day at a glance also helps better planning and organizing events – perfect for a busy person or someone who wants to live life to the fullest!
Beginning of 2015 two Italian Swiss gentlemen questioned the belief that luxury should be inherited or gained over time.
They then decided to develop luxury products for young people and this is how Todd & Marlon was born.
Todd & Marlon leverage old craftsmanship to create modern pieces of art; being Italians they appreciate beauty and have an innate sense of style and their Swiss heritage injects precision and attention to details in all their works.
The products they develop are custom made to suit the needs of the people who create their own future - the self-made people!
Todd & Marlon, however, want to offer more than products. Their ultimate goal is to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit hidden within each one of us. For this reason they share resources, insights, books and much more through the different social media channels.
