5 US Watchmakers Every Geek Should Know

Post by koimaster » October 23rd 2019, 9:18am

The history of American watchmaking is captivating and compelling, but not as well documented as British, German, or Swiss watchmaking history. Even so, there are stories that should be told, inventions that we can learn from, and people whose lives must be remembered. This history is still around us, but it isn't necessarily a quick and easy Google search away. The five watchmakers documented below lived across two centuries and all shared a common trait: They all worked to make a positive contribution to the watchmaking industry and did so from American soil.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
