Watches have long been a tradition of style, function and legacy. Not so long in our distant past, the United States led innovation and craftsmanship in watchmaking. By the turn of the century though, the days of a booming American watch industry felt like distant past. That was until a brand new wave of perfection obsessed watchmakers began to bring mastery and style together to rekindle the American tradition of telling time. This guide is a tribute to the unexpected comeback of American made watches and the brands that are bringing them home.
The first seven brands listed here represent American purist watchmakers who strive to make every component in their pieces here at home. Most of them still source movements from Europe but the pursuit of a 100% American Made watch is a part of their ethos.
In addition to these seven brands we’ve also included 5 of our favorite “American Built” watch brands. Each of these companies is based in the USA and sources a mix of USA and globally made components for their pieces.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
