Introducing the new Minuteman A11. These watches are powered by the new Ameriquartz USA movement. These watches and movements will be assembled in the United States of America!
Our Minuteman A11 is based on the US Military WWII A11. Rather than attempt to totally copy this iconic design. We've chosen to offer an updated version of this iconic watch. These watches will be assembled in Fountain Hills Arizona USA by FTS for our Minuteman brand. Each watch features a quartz movement that is carefully assembled by hand in the USA. The movements have both domestic and imported parts and are in our view the most American quartz movements available.
Part of the proceeds from each Minuteman watch we sell in 2019 will go to military/veterans charity Homes For Our Troops. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 for this great charity. Please help us help them.
