Special Operations Warrior Foundation and Minuteman Watch Co


Greetings to all of you and thanks so much for taking the time to read this update.

First up we want to point out that the funds Minuteman Watch Co raises in 2015 will go to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The charity has a 4 star rating from Charity Navigator and has been around since about 1980.

Currently we are hard at work to introduce some new products in an effort to raise even more funds for charity. Thus far 2015 has been a challenging year and we really need your help to keep our efforts on track. So please consider ordering one of our products and be sure to tell all of your friends about our efforts. We also ask that you post about us on your various blogs, forums, and social media sites. 

We have just partnered with Dave Wattenberg and the fine folks at Pro-Tech Knives to offer a rugged, high quality, American made knife. We are only able to offer forty of these and each knife will be individually serial numbered. This knife is based on the popular Pro-Tech TR4 Skull Manual and we refer to it as a Mintueman/Pro-Tech TR4 Manual. Our version features a Flat Dark Earth Anodized handle with black blade and fittings.

Some notable items about the Minuteman/Pro-Tech TR4 Manual knife:

The frame is 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum.  Like ALL Pro-Tech knives. Pro-Tech starts with blocks of metal and machines everything in house.

The knife features a full four inch blade made out of  154-CM. Even the steel is made in United States of America.

The skull is sterling silver and is based on a Bruce Shaw hand carved skull knife that was on the front cover of Tactical Knives magazine a couple of years ago.

At the back end we feature the glass breaker/lanyard pass through.  That piece is full hard stainless steel and was tested by US Marines on breaking Hummer windows out.

The custom skull lanyard is also USA made by Schmuckatelli company in Paramount, California.

Next we would like to talk about our new series of  American built watches which we are trying to market and are funding via a pre-sale effort.

You can not purchase one of these watches for as low as $199! The watches come with a 5 year limited warranty and feature free lifetime battery replacement. Plus 25% of the profit from each one sold will go to charities that assist veterans and their families. In 2015 that charity will be Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

We do not know of any other company offering a watch assembled in the USA with a 5 year warranty, free lifetime battery replacement, and donating 25% of the profit for a lower price than we are. For that matter we know of no other company offering such a watch at any price! These watches make great gifts which will stand the test of time and will fit both men and women. Currently the most popular version of this new series is our Red, White, and Blue Yorktown model in black PVD finish shown below.
