Thanks for taking care of us. What you do means a lot. It’s our legacy on these watches, just so special and one of a kind! I can imagine you have some amazing stories…. it’s very meaningful work. You do it well!!! The watch arrived. It’s beautiful and the presentation is stunning. We couldn’t be happier!
~ S. Fleming
Great timing. I was out yesterday and just opened the boxes a few minutes ago. The watch is stunning and classic! Just what I wanted. The flasks are beautiful and thanks for the really cool bottle openers! First class job all around. Finally, as I get ready to take on my second career, I believe I can market/sell these watches, so I am still very interested in being a partner. Thanks for the top-notch customer service!
~ COL. Ken Kliethermes
The watch arrived this morning and it is gorgeous! I really love it. Also thanks for your beautiful card.
With lots of hugs,
Just got the package today, it looks beautiful. Thank you so much for your help and attention to detail. A special thank you for the gifts. They look really sharp and I'm very grateful to you. Thank you for the hard work you did for me! Have a great week, I know I will!

Mr. Knewitz and SwissPL, you certainly deserve the W-O-W award of the day for customer experience. Your responsiveness and flexibility in creating a precision, customized watch is refreshing in today’s version of customer service. Your interface and revisions have made it very easy to make the purchase decision for my commemorative watch. I am anxious to receive it, but know it will be a daily reminder of great times for years to come. Thanks again to you and your staff.
~ Lt. Col. Greg Richardson
Thank you so much! We received THE watch! Bob was completely surprised and said it was the most beautiful gift he’s ever received. He loves it! It’s truly is a work of art. And.... the beautiful surprise personalized watch for me and the flask was so so thoughtful. We also loved the (bottle) openers! Too cool! It’s been a pleasure working out all the details with you and we will certainly be passing out your information / business cards to our acquaintances. All the best in your future and many blessings.

You have brought happiness to those who served our Great Nation by providing them with visible tokens of valorous service. You are commended by a growing number of warriors - at home and abroad!

Alldaron... as an understatement, all I can say is "Dammmmmnnn!" Absolutely beautiful. If I were rating you in my squadron, I'd have to remark "Exceeds Expectations -- Minimum supervision required." My Bros at lunch today were "oohing and ahhing". I was debating asking you if there was any chance you could push up production, in time for my wedding anniversary, but I could certainly understand if that wasn't possible. After 33 years in the military, I've learned that the surest way to not get what you want is to not ask the question. Then, lo and behold, your e-mail comes saying the watch is on the way. Damn, got my wishes.
~ LT Colonel Martin, USAF
Oh my goodness. This watch is super cool. It’s working beautifully. I love it. So well done. And the flask! Nice touch! That will come in handy. We are headed to Canada to ski in a few weeks for a long weekend.
The watch looks awesome! You have some incredible aviators wearing your watches. I’m impressed. Been an outstanding experience working with you. Love the watch! Exceeds my expectations. I’ll wear it proudly. Thanks Alldaron for a very nice experience. Appreciate your attention to detail and always being available. You have a lifetime customer.

"Perfect is good enough!" An original quote which you deserve .... well done .... approved. Can't wait to see it!

Hello from New Hampshire.
Since I don't have an address for you, other than an email, I wanted to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and to those you care about.
Beyond making the obvious sale, I think it was extraordinary that you thought of me after some months of me being incommunicado.
I often am.
As I have gotten older, my friends have dwindled in number just as my pain has served to keep me at home.
Still, reaching out to me was a good turn and one deserves another.
Beyond my physical injuries, I lost a UCLA classmate to suicide, two police partners to suicide, and another to the ravages of alcohol.
I once read that every cop is wounded and I have come to believe that bit of wisdom.
But I have been blessed in this life loaned to me.
A marvelous, understanding and beautiful wife.
Dogs and cats.
A great place to live full of marvelous memories.
I can't thank you enough.
He’s going to love it. As an aside, I got him a “vintage" Casio digital rectangular watch to replace the one that he wore in the 80s, and I hated more than anything. It is absolutely awful. It went missing about 30 years ago. He’s convinced that I had something to do with it, but I didn’t. Though I wish I had….;) He will get a kick out of it, and then I will give him this fabulous watch. Thinking he may ‘lose’ the Casio all over again!

Working with Alldaron Knewitz and SwissPL has been exceptionally easy. The customization process blew me away, totally. I was absolutely shocked by the acute precision involved, and by SwissPL's ability to bring my ideas to life so accurately and so quickly. Now, sadly, my long suffering wife, who has seen me through so many surgeries, and our dogs will have a hard time sleeping because I'll be pacing the floor all night waiting for this finely crafted testament to my experiences to arrive.
Damn, Alldaron, your responses are incredible and timely. Everything is on the mark.....press on. Thanks again for your attention to detail and quick response. Everything looks great the way you've laid it out. Make it happen. Thanks again.
~ Lt. Col. B. "The Bro" Martin
I just gifted the watch to my dad last week for his retirement from the airlines and he loved it! Thank you for all your hard work making a one of a kind gift!
I received the package last week, and with great timing, Peter arrived back in port yesterday for a mid patrol stop! He was so thrilled with the piece, and there's a formal ship event this week during the stop that he was thrilled to have it in time to wear. Peter will be leaving again to finish out the final months of his last patrol with USS Carney as Captain and changes command the end of April. I know he plans to write his own note as well, but thank you so much. This was the best gift to give and seeing his own design to mark his accomplishments was really wonderful. We look forward to hearing that other friends consider your business also!
~ C. Halvorsen
My watch just arrived and I am so pleased with it! I will show it to my pilot buddies and wear it at Tailhook in August. Anybody who seems interested at Hook I will also offer them a swig of whiskey from my cool (customized) flask. You didn’t have to do that, but I really think it is cool; it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Got it. Wore it. Love it... I couldn’t resist - as soon as I opened the box, I put it on and went to a baseball game. Now I have to go through the rest of the goodies you sent! Thanks! Just looked at the (customized) flask - that was a surprise and very appreciated. You took much care to provide a high quality experience.

Nice work! Word gets around Naval Aviation quickly that SwissPL makes unique, quality watches that are stood behind with great service. Keep up the good work.
~ Capt. Matthew "Yodel" Leahey
The watches were delivered today in excellent condition. The watches are beautiful, and I am very happy with the product. Thank you for creating excellence.
I just wanted to thank you, and to review my beautiful custom SwissPL watch that we collaborated on and I recently received. I had waited a long time to pull the trigger on a purchase of a watch of this magnitude, and couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. It is exactly what we designed, after countless emails and renditions to get it exactly correct... attention to detail is what we call it in the aviation profession.
While I have only had and worn the watch a week, I’ve already been approached by others who admired it and requested your information (send my commission to... ha). I have also broke it in regarding lap swimming and can verify its waterproof capability and timekeeping accuracy. It really is a sharp, eye catching watch design and very reflective of my Naval service.
Again, thank you Alldaron for your time and effort in getting this watch done right, as well as your quality product. Sincerely,
~ Lt. Mike "Saint" Bernard
Alldaron, you are one in-action human! No wonder you have built a first class organization delivering such high quality timepieces. I am really impressed with your receptivity and follow-thru in every regard. Nice going.
~ Lt. Col. G. "Spock" Richardson
It's been quite some time, but I wanted to touch base and let you know my "Royal Maces" exclusive timepiece is still going strong and getting a lot of compliments. And it's looking great in a Delta uniform. I've noticed that you're doing more marketing in recent months. I may be in the market for a new custom watch. Tossing around ideas including the combination of a Super Hornet and my current jet, the A320. Nothing pressing now, just wanted to say hi and thanks for the great timepiece.
I have probably 25 watches, and I wear yours about 95% of the time.
~ COL. G. Rhinesmith - USMC (ret.)
