Don't miss out on this last one!
There are some classics out there that are quintessentially American. Apple pie. Baseball. The ’57 Chevy. The A11 watch.
The Minuteman A11 honors the classic design of the U.S. Military WWII A11, keeping true to the spirit of the original while making a few updates to this iconic watch. This watch is born out of a partnership between Minuteman and FTS, based out of Fountain Hills, Arizona. FTS hand-assembles each A11 quartz movement in the USA out of a combination of domestic and imported parts. In our estimation, they are the most American quartz movements available on the market today.
10% of the selling price from each Minuteman A11 we sell will go to a military/veterans charity. The goal of Minuteman Watch Co. is to raise $10 thousand dollars this year through the sales of these watches for the charities.

Some of you may be wondering why we choose FTS to build our new watches. FTS is a new company that is working to bring mass production of watches back to the United States. We would like to help in their noble efforts.
