#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Wrist”, “Dial”, “Timeless” and “Tick Tock”, you can see that while these words can be related to watches, they also suggest the ways that a new watch could enhance the buyer’s life by choosing from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great watch business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Tick Tock Timepieces

This name gives the impression of a fun business that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The Hands of Time

This name conveys the idea of moving with the time. The hands of time don’t stand still and neither does the world of watch fashion.

Timeless Tastes

This name gives the idea of a vintage watch company that is proud to stick to classic values.

Changing Faces

This name suggests that changing your watch could lead to a new you very easily.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great watch business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful watch businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Rolex Logo

Rolex was set up in 1905, the company was called Wilsdorf and Davis after its founders. According to one of the theories, one of the founders came up with Rolex by combining different letters in different orders. The word Rolex sounded good and it stuck

Zenith Logo | BusinessNameGenerator.com

Zenith company founder George Favre-Jacot wanted an original and simple name for his company like Rolex. One day, he went out, looked at the sky and thought of the word “zenith.” The term refers to the highest points that heavenly bodies reach in the sky.

TagHuer Logo

Tag Heuer the word “tag” is German and it means day. The second component of the brand comes from the company founder – Edouard Heuer.

5 Tips for naming your watch business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused watch terms like watches or wristwatches. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real watch business named “The Hour Glass”.

This name doesn’t even mention watches, but it is about a quaint way of measuring time that conjures up images immediately. It lets the reader imagine the pleasure of watching the minutes pass by.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Watch World, Timeless Treasures)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Bezels – this is a part of a watch that can be used to give a more technical sounding business name)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable watch business names could be:

  • Watchazoo
  • TooCoolToTick
  • DigiWrists

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Vintage Watches and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like VintaWatches, Vintatches or WatchVintage.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
