The Eleven Story
"Watches and giving back are a big part of who I am, Eleven is how I make 1 and 1 come together"

How It Began
In 2017, I spent the entire year visiting very remote parts of the world, that's when I experienced how hard it was for families to provide for their children.
I learned that 3 million children under the age of 5 die of hunger and malnourishment every year, that is approximately one every 11 seconds. I know that can change because we have enough food to feed everybody on earth and malnourishment is 100% treatable.
Our plan is simple, to provide a quality watch that not only tells time, but also buys time for a child in need, by providing 1 food pak for every watch sold.
has serviced and repaired watches for over 45 years, it's how he put food on the table for a family of 6. It's not just his job, it's his passion and it's something that him and I share together. He taught me that every part of a watch is important no matter how big or small, people are the same way, we are all important in this world, we are what makes the world tic.
visits her home country in El Salvador every year and she doesn't go back empty handed. She makes it a point to take packages filled with clothes, vitamins, food, and anything to help people, especially children in need. She taught me that feeding yourself will fill your stomach but feeding someone else will fill your soul.
