The Present is a perspective-shifting companion to conventional time.
Instead of measuring the scarcity of fleeting moments, The Present grounds you in time’s abundance, helping you clarify what’s most important in life.
Each handcrafted timepiece transports you beyond seconds, minutes, and hours by anchoring your experience of time with the natural rhythms of the day, the moon, and the year. The result is a life-affirming, conversation-starting, new point of view on the nature of time.
Since 2013, The Present has guided over 5,000 people into a new way of seeing time.
The Present offers a spaciousness to time, a connection to the seasons, a wonderful talking point, a gift to give others.
