Just a few years ago, there were only a few American-made watch brands and they were available only to a wealthy handful of people. Now, a domestic watch industry is alive and growing. Minuteman Watch Co. has been leading the charge with manly watches that look really cool. However, the high quality automatic watches have been a little expensive for many of us. But, change is in the air! The Minuteman Watch Co. has been working on a high quality quartz model that is more affordable.

The company has recently unveiled its new Independence series of watches. These watches are powered by the venerable Ronda 515 Swiss Quartz movement. Each watch is assembled in Mentor, Ohio, by Wiegand Custom Watches. If the name sounds familiar, Chris Wiegand is the man behind the revered Lum-Tec brand of military-style watches.
These Minuteman watches have a streamlined military style. I particularly like the Minuteman silhouette centered above the six o’clock position. These Independence series watches are tough customers with 100 meter water resistance and sapphire crystals with an internal anti-reflective coating. They have a sensible 40 millimeter diameter stainless steel case. You can get a stainless model or you night raiders can get a black PVD coated stainless steel case. With either case, they’ll be backed by a 5 year warranty and lifetime battery replacement.

The Minuteman Watch Co. also strongly backs our military. The Minuteman Watch Company donates 25% of their net profit to charity. In 2016, these donations will go to support the highly regarded charity Fisher House. Fisher House is best known for providing a network of 67 comfort homes near VA hospitals and military bases where the families of military men and veterans can stay while a loved one undergoes medical treatment. Fisher House also provides programs to assist with similar treatment-related travel and hotel stays for military families.
Regularly priced at $309, these Minuteman watches are now for sale at a special introductory price of only $250 or $275 for the black PVD model. Check them out at Minuteman Watch Co.
