Benson was founded on the principle that “Time Should Be Spent Doing What You Love” it is our goal that our beautiful creations serve as sparks of inspiration for anyone who comes in contact with our brand!

For Marcel Benson, passion, timing, and a lucrative partnership with Macy’s have kept his eponymous watch company ticking. In fact, he says those synchronized elements are putting The Benson Watch Co. on schedule to generate $1 million in revenues within the next year.

Today, Benson, 30, has transformed that enthusiasm into a thriving company that produces watches and accessories. He achieved his goal by making the decision to discontinue his “linear route” in corporate America. After graduating from Morehouse College, Benson took a position as a financial analyst for the mammoth accounting and advisory firm Grant Thornton in New York. Although he proved adept at his job and was on the path to greater managerial responsibilities, the rising executive says he was “not feeling fulfilled” and had to be “truthful in living his life.”

The gravitational pull to entrepreneurship was too powerful. He vividly remembers the day he quit his job, which he recounts on his website. He walked into the company’s Human Resources Department, told company officials that working in the company was no longer meant for him and quickly made his exit after his announcement. “I was extremely nervous because I didn’t know what was next,” he recalls. In fact, Benson used that moment to reinforce his company’s branding, using the slogan: “Time Should Be Spent Doing What You Love.”
