OUR WHY

I’m Sebastian–Co-Founder of Exodus Watch Co. and I’d like to share my story. In late 2015, I had developed significant mental health issues that impacted my daily living for well over a year. At its peak, I had accepted that I would try to live the rest of my life with constant feelings of anxiousness and despair.

I knew I needed to make a change. It was incredibly difficult, but I actively made attempts in improving my mental health such as physical activity, seeking guidance from mental health counselors (this was a free resource that I otherwise would not have been able to afford), and maintaining the belief that I would eventually get better with time. Time was a powerful construct for me during this period. I had developed techniques that would help ground myself during anxious times such as watching seconds tick by on a watch. I inadvertently created a strong connection between time and mental health, and watches became an essential accessory for me.

Though it took some time, eventually I got better and met my girlfriend Aundrea shortly after. On top of being an incredibly supportive partner, Aundrea possessed skills that I simply did not have which would have been critical to develop a business. After realizing that we could use each other's strengths to negate our weaknesses, the topic of creating our own watch brand while simultaneously contributing to improving mental health started coming to life.

Together, we perfectly balance each other out, in our relationship, and in our business.

OUR MISSION & VALUES

The term Exodus (ex·o·dus, Greek origin) refers to a mass departure of people. The beginning of a new journey reflective of time as well as change. Exodus aims to recognize the time and change of each individualistic journey in life as a symbolic timepiece on your wrist. Our watches are made of high-quality material, affordable, and designed to give the sense of confidence and fashion everybody deserves. 

As a partner of The Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington, Exodus donates $10 from every watch towards mental health initiatives that will better the lives of those struggling with mental health. With Exodus, your personal journey and time is precious. Your time is now. 

OUR BRAND

Our brand goes beyond watches. We're committed to spreading optimism and positivity through our content creation and positive messaging.

Our brand revolves around improving mental heath and well-being through content like self-care strategies, comforting videos, and so much more.

Exodus Watch Co. honours those that honour themselves and their journey with intent.

OUR JOURNEY

Aundrea and I have always talked about starting a business together. We've dreamt of what it would be like to create something from start to finish, have our own schedules, and be the creators of our own path. After countless late nights, redesigns, and pizza runs later, we were able to make that dream a reality with Exodus Watch Co.

It's been so much fun (and certainly scary at times) watching Exodus grow from just a concept in our minds, to a full-fledged brand. And the best part? Getting to share this journey with someone you love.

Come share the journey with us and check out our Tiktok for a behind-the-scenes look at how Exodus operates, our struggles, our successes, and see us grow as business owners and as a couple.
