As some of you know Minuteman Watch Co posted previously about the idea of offering an American built wrist watch with a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic winding mechanical movement. We have all but green lighted this and should have our first sample in this week.
We decided this model really should have a name and have asked for suggestions on our Minuteman Watch Co social media. Out of those we’ve select the four we like best. Please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org which one you like best.
The choices are:
- Minuteman Eagle
- Minuteman Field Auto
- Minuteman Independence
- Minuteman Commander
At this point our goal is to be able to offer these for a price of $599. We believe this will make this lowest priced American assembled wrist watch with a true Swiss made ETA 2824 automatic movement. Each of these will be serial numbered. We have started a contact list for those wishing to be contacted when we start pre-selling these.
If you would like to request a particular serial number you can also do so by contacting us at email@example.com . We plan to make just 100 of these and numbering will start at 001 and end at 100.
Here is how the design currently looks. We may make some slight changes to the hands but this is quite close to how the final product will look.
Here are some photo’s of the first prototype. We will most likely be making the hands a bit longer. Also we will probably make increase the width of the hour and minute hands.
