Our founder and designer, Parker Locke, created Misano with a goal in mind to merge his two passions of racing and timepieces into one. Parker, an 18 year old race car driver and designer, has had years of experience in the racing industry as he began driving in karts at the age of 14 and got his first taste of car racing at the age of 16. He continues to work his way up the ranks in the racing world and work to become a professional racing driver.
Along with his love for racing, Parker has always had a passion for design. Ever since his childhood years, he always found joy in designing anything from cars to houses. At the age of 15 he began to grow an interest in watches as he received his first watch as a Christmas gift from his mother, and ever since; his passion for watches has become one of its own.
At the age of 17, he began to design his own watches for fun. Starting out with simple 2D drawings and later moving on to building complete 3D models of his designs. After months of designing and nearly 200 complete watch designs later, he decided to take one of his designs and work to form his own company. And thats where the journey of Misano begins.
