WATCH SPECIFICATIONS
The Classic watch is a 42mm case (46mm with the crown). The case thickness is 12.5mm. From lug to lug is 50mm. And the strap width is 22mm.
The watch is water depth rating is 300 meters (1,000 feet). The watch case is 316L surgical grade stainless steel. The glass is sapphire crystal, with inner anti-reflective coating. The bezel is a uni-directional bezel. The crown and caseback are screwed down, ensuring the depth rating.

The watch comes on a vintage leather strap with white stitching and Pre-V buckle. We offer a solid metal bracelet as optional upgrade for $185.

The movement powering your watch is a Swiss quartz-analog (battery) movement; or we offer an upgrade to the Swiss automatic (self-winding) mechanical movement for $345 [like found in Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Tag Heuer].

MOVEMENT
The watch is powered by Swiss Ronda 515HC Quartz (battery powered) movement. The battery should last about 2 years and then simply send it in for a quick battery swap, and perhaps an overhaul service to remove the years of scratches and marks your timepiece received along the journey.

Automatic Upgrade
You can upgrade your timepiece to the Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic mechanical (self winding) movement, with 25 jewels. An Automatic is another term for “self-winding”, meaning the watch winds itself using a rotator weight inside the timepiece which oscillates to apply tension on the mainspring of the movement through the random motion of the watch owner’s arm. This movement does not require a battery, but does require manual winding every few days using the crown to fully “charge the mainspring” and increase the timepiece’s accuracy because it’s running at full power. You should send your watch in for routine service every year, or two years at the longest. Just like your precision firearms, which you routinely clean and oil, a mechanical timepiece requires this care as well.

HANDCRAFTED IN AMERICA

Swiss Components with American Craftsmanship designed to Tell Your Story. We receive our components like a lego-box from our partner factories in Switzerland, Germany, and America; and then assemble each timepiece per the design requirements and specifications as each watch is “made to order”. Even “stock designs” feature customized caseback engravings and personalization details.

You select your desired case and dial option, movement and strap choice and then we create the perfect graphic for your caseback engraving, one that describes you and your milestones, your achievements and your sacrifices, a watch that is symbolically you, one that tells your story.
