I'd like to see more pictures of the watch but the design is fine and the price not bad. Better pictures would help to see the level of quality that is missing in the grainy picture they show.

They should specify the charity by name they wish to support.

$200 for a $50 watch. Imagine that.

Minuteman doing the "Buy me because I'm American" thing had me thinking of other companies doing the same thing. I knew there was a company out of Detroit pulling this wool so I googled 'Detroit watch company' and got this instead of Shinola:

In the case of knowing shit from Shinola; it's a trick question. Shinola is shit.

If I'm going to buy American because it's made in America and I love to wave the flag, I'm going with the Timex.

Shinola is overpriced but the watches are actually very well made.
Thanks, I stand corrected. There was something about them that set me off; perhaps the advertising. They used to be everywhere.

There have been tons of threads all over the place about Shinola and their early marketing claims. Pro and con. I had a couple and still have a Filson,which is made by Shinola.
Bottom line is that they are good,quality watches. That's my bottom line.

About Us

Dedicated to quality. Committed to country. Built to stand the test of time.

Minuteman Watch Company is named after the patriots at the dawn of the American Revolution who stood at the ready in times of great peril, prepared to assemble and defend the rights of their new country at a minute’s notice.

We honor them, and all Americans, with each piece we create. Our wristwatches are built by highly skilled American artisans who believe that American-made wristwatches are ready to return to prominence. While other companies rely increasingly on machines to churn out their watches, Minuteman Watch Company was built around the idea of providing jobs to Americans who are passionate about the craft and the artistry of watchmaking. This belief led Minuteman to create watches that are a blend of precision, passion and purpose.

A portion of the proceeds from each Minuteman watch goes to charities that support American Veterans and their families. This promise goes back to the first days of the company in 2012, when the father-son team that founded Minuteman Watch Company promised a portion of their first-year sales to The Gary Sinise Foundation. Since then, Minuteman has designated an annual charity partner to benefit from the sale of each watch. This year’s partner is Building Homes for Heroes, a nonprofit dedicated to providing adapted homes to wounded warriors and their families.

Some of them aren't bad looking, maybe a bit overpriced but a nice way to support some noble charities.

My wife says no more watches and no more cycling or car upgrades for a while. I started to say something but then:

Exactly. Have told my wife more than once that for her to win every single argument, all she has to do is whip out the titties. Argument over, you win, what is it you want me to do?
