Montana Watch Company founder Jeffrey Nashan began his career in the field of vintage timepiece restoration. Jeffrey was intrigued by the combination of engineering, craftsmanship, and artistry utilized in horology and soon began to focus on the works of early American watch manufactures. Inspired by these pioneers and wanting to carry on their tradition, he created the Montana Watch Company.
His first wristwatch was the Model 1915, a wire-lugged timepiece paying homage to the transition of timepieces from the waistcoat to the wrist, which happened around the turn of the 20th century. The 100 piece limited edition of the Model 1915 was so well received that it quickly sold out, inspiring Jeffrey to create an entire line of watches which today consists of nine different models.
The Founder, Jeffrey Nashan
Jeffrey Nashan, Montana Watch Company owner and founder, began his career in horology as a watchmaker specializing in the restoration of vintage timepieces. He became particularly fascinated with the history of early American wrist and pocket watch manufacturing, from back in the day when American companies dominated the field.
When Nashan’s interests went beyond simple restoration and into the areas of design and manufacture he founded The Montana Watch Company and began what has become a passion to create truly unique, heirloom timepieces inspired by the designs of the early American watchmakers.
Horology is the science of time, timekeeping, and timekeepers. At the Montana Watch Company, horology is an art and a commitment to making the best timekeepers available.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
