Meet Marin Instruments

Origin Story

During the day, Justin Walters works on satellites for the Department of Energy at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He couldn't tell me more than that. What he could tell me about, however, is Marin Instruments, the brand he founded in 2019 to fulfill his vision of bringing back the skin diver.

It all started in Kansas City, where Walters learned to repair watches at a small shop when he was in his 20s. That job put him through school, where he studied visual arts and graphic design. Now 32, he's applying both his watchmaking know-how and design skill set to create a brand that conceptualizes the skin diver in a way that's in line with modern design.

Marin Instruments has nothing to do with Marin County, instead, it stems from the brand's dive watch ambitions, "I'm just a kid from the midwest, I had no idea about Marin County. I didn't want anything too deep, I wanted something bold and simple. Originally, I had considered Marine, but then I took the e off to make it stick more."

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
