Our Story

"Hunters Race is a curated collection of the finest timepieces designed in Auckland, New Zealand."

Travelling has always been a large part of our lives, and as roaming Kiwis, we were always on the look out for interesting places and ideas. Deep in the heart of West Sussex, in search of a shortcut between two English villages, we stumbled across a hidden gem ‘Hunters Race’, a place like no other. A beautiful street with Ancient Roman ruins buried in the fields on the left and a modern solar energy plant in the fields on the right. This handy road seemed to act as the threshold between the ancient and the modern world. Every time we drove through Hunters Race, it reminded us of similar scenes back home, where one minute you are surrounded by houses and people and the next you are in the countryside. Coincidentally the name ‘Hunter’ was quite synonymous with our family as it had been passed down from our Great Grandparents and made up our middle names. Hunters Race became our own street in the middle of England, our secret shortcut.​

On our return to New Zealand and with our passion for watches and design, we wanted to replicate this threshold with our timepieces. Bringing classic materials and methods from the past and combining them with modern design. To produce a wristwatch that clearly showed what the time was without being complicated, as well as looking elegant on the wrist. A watch that could be dressed up for the right occasion or worn as a striking casual timepiece.

Owned and operated by Father and Son, Scott and Jack Ramsay. Hunters Race is a curated collection of fine timepieces designed and assembled in Auckland, New Zealand. Having grown up around watches, it didn’t take long for Jack to fall in love with them. Being a spatial designer and a freelance artist, it all came together nicely. We thrive to produce meticulously designed timepieces with a combination of traditional and modern materials. Scott having had over thirty years experience in the watch industry, sees to it that our watches are of the highest quality, along with providing a very professional service.
