New for 2016 our Minuteman Independence Series!


Here at Minuteman Watch Co we are currently working on a new series of watches that will be priced lower than our current models. This new series will be smaller in size compared to our current watch models. Which means this series will fit a wider variety of wrist sizes. For the size we have selected 40 mm which is a classic men’s size and also a contemporary size for a ladies watch.

We plan to start pre-selling this new model in the 1st quarter of 2016. If you would like us to contact us when we start accepting orders email us at and let us know you would like to be on the Independence contact list.

Spec’s for this model have not been finalized so check back for updates on our here on our site and our social media sites. The black PVD version of this new watch will be priced at an MSRP of $299. We will offer these at a discounted price during the pre-sale. We also may offer a slightly lower priced version which will have a blasted case finish.

This model has been designed by Chris Wiegand owner of Lum-Tec watches. While this model will not have that “Lum-Tec” glow they will have lume and glow in the dark. As with our current models these will be assembled in the USA. We plan to offer only about 100 of these in the first production run.
