Me O’clock was founded by Jamie Parker, a young American man with an inspirational success story. Born and raised in the Bronx by a single mother, Jamie refused to become another statistic; with hard work and determination he was able to beat the odds. Jamie graduated with a bachelors and masters degree in biology from Lehman College. As an athlete in college, Jamie understood the importance of maintaining a strong healthy foundation and utilized sports and exercise as fuel for the driving force of his mind. He brought home a championship ring for swimming and received numerous trophies and medals for track and basketball.
Venturing out into the business world, Jamie established his own watch company and came up with the concept of me o’clock. A time piece where the “ME” takes the place of the actual numbers; hence its always “ME” o’clock. He went on to make custom hats, shirts and currently he provides services to help people reach their goal. While literally changing the face of time, Jamie uses Me O’clock to emphasize self worth in the face of adversity; his watches are the motivational tool that serves as a constant reminder that it is always one’s time. He is a prime example that no matter one’s circumstance, through hard work and perseverance there is no limit to what one can achieve.
