Marcus started Bruder Watches in 2020. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Bruder Watches?
‘Another beer please sir’ I said to the waiter, as my two brothers and I sat and enjoyed a meal in a pizzeria in the center of Bristol. For years we had talked about opening up a business but we had never managed to find the inspiration that we needed. Maybe it was the beers that helped but on that warm summer's evening, we finally realized the common ground we all had - watches.
We are not the only people with a young family and a full-time job that start a business up on the side. But the truth is that maintaining the motivation after a long day is more than half the battle.
The conversation continued long into the night and with the excitement, we all felt, it was then that we knew we had found the inspiration we needed to move forward. Although we are very close as siblings, our skill sets are worlds apart. Luke, my eldest brother is a web developer, Nathan, the middle brother is an architect and I am a Sales Account Manager.
We are fortunate that Luke's profession means we were able to develop the bruderwatches.com website in-house, with the very little financial impact on the business. It goes without saying that the efforts of my eldest brother on the website were arguably the reason we all committed to the start-up. Without his abilities, financially we probably wouldn’t have been able to commit to launching the business at the time, particularly as both me and Nathan have young families that continuously drain our bank balances.
