Mr. Randy Williams, as an entrepreneur, has gained national media attention for his company, Talley & Twine, where he designs and manufactures watches and other accessories. His watches have been featured in The Huffington Post, Essence Magazine, Ebony Magazine, and Black Enterprise Magazine. Randy is currently the president of this company and still retains 100% ownership. His book, 7 Questions Every Young Leader Must Answer, has been used by schools and community organizations as a model to teach young people to think and act like leaders. Mr. Williams is an graduate of Albany State University, a Historically Black College & University, in Albany, GA.

Created with a person of style in mind, Talley & Twine satisfies a need in the marketplace for quality, aesthetically-pleasing watches that resist the status quo. These designs were born after finding that the market is riddled with watches that compromise quality or style to emulate the most popular brands. Talley & Twine was created to disrupt the stagnant, uninspiring watch marketplace. Tastemakers, trendsetters and trailblazers can appreciate our clean and classic design.

Talley & Twine was founded on two principles: legacy and lifestyle. We want to set the standard for future generations, and we want to look good doing it. The number seven on the face of our watches represents completion and serves as a reminder to always finish what you start. The face also gives our timepieces a distinct look that sets us apart from other brands.

Interestingly enough, our name comes from an intersection that was formerly the center of a notorious, crime-riddled neighborhood in Virginia. In recent years, the neighborhood has been completely revitalized and families now have the opportunity to own. A place with a dark past now has a bright future; Talley & Twine represents that future. It’s not about how you start, it’s about how you finish.
