Thank you for following our growth!
It is hard to believe how far we have come in the past few years. When I launched this business out of the walk-in closet in my apartment, I had lofty goals of growing the business and creating our own movement, but was not sure what the future would hold. At this point, I have personally hand-finished and assembled over 3,000 timepieces and look forward to handcrafting the next 3,000. Each hour spent in the studio pouring over my craft is a joy.
Thanks to your support, I was able to reach my goal of launching our own movement this year! We expanded into a new state-of-the-art facility with on-site CNC milling and turning capabilities along with our design offices and a clean room for assembly. We hired three new team members too, and I am training my first watch technician to assist me as we grow. After I finish writing this, I am heading back to my work bench to complete the last of our 50 American Issue timepieces.
