Minuteman Watches are doing a great job building their reputation as an American micro brand, with assembly of all their watches in the USA and their support of veteran charities and causes. This new release slated for 1st quarter next year keeps to their proud tradition of no nonsense field watches.


The Independence has been designed by Chris Wiegand owner of Lum-Tec watches and is proudly assembled in Mentor Ohio USA by Lum-Tec watch company. Lum-Tec is a well established brand that has gained a lot of fans with their cool military designs.

Minuteman plan to offer only 100 watches in the first production run with the design available in what appears to be bead blasted steel (25 pieces) and black PVD (75 pieces). The watches have a 5 year limited warranty and they offer free lifetime battery replacement. Commendably, Minuteman have pledged 25% of the profit from their net annual sales to charities assisting veterans & their Families.
