The Resurgence of American Watch Making...........
The U S of A was a global leader of the watch manufacturing industry from late 1800's to the 1940's having mastered the technology of mass producing exquisite timepieces . The Swiss watch makers were masters of watch crafting since the 1700's but lacked mass production expertise. With the advent of the World Wars the Swiss were quick to jump on the technology as USA got involved into the World Wars. As American watch manufacturers divested their capabilities towards producing arms and armaments, the Swiss who were neutral during the wars, capitalized on the american technology and became world leaders in horology producing watches for the masses. Leading American watch brands either moved production to Switzerland or were bought over by the Swiss thus bringing a sad end to American Watchmaking.
Since then, few and far USA watch makers have made watch movements and watches, mostly with varying degree of US origin components. Such timepieces, although coveted, are very high priced and hence beyond the reach of average Americans.
This is going to change soon..................
A Small Business Enterprise of Arizona, Zee Watch Group, is embarking on a ground breaking manufacturing project that will make the complex watch movements domestically. The production will be phased over a period of 2-3 years encompassing various degrees of US origin components to eventually offer a range of genuine "Made in USA" quartz, mechanical and smart watch modules at competitive values. Commencing in January 2018 a fully "Assembled in USA" product line will be available exclusively to the American Watch Brands enabling them make their timepieces in the USA and revive the American Watch Manufacturing Industry.
