American Luxury Time Classics

When it comes to premium high-end timepieces, American watch brands are normally not the first ones that come to mind. It’s very easy to overlook many prestigious American watchmakers when numerous Swiss watch brands gather all of the attention and publicity. This weekend as America celebrates its 240th Birthday, we at the Watchery.com are paying tribute to prominent American watch brands.

Bulova, Ingersoll and Hamilton reflect a rich heritage of American time-keeping excellence and were all founded in New York and Pennsylvania respectively during the late 1880’s. Luminox, a relative horological newcomer was founded in 1989.

ACCUSWISS-64C106
Bulova Accu-Swiss Murren

Bulova the elder statesman of American watchmakers, holds the distinction of being the first mass producer of timepieces in the world. In 1912 the brand opened a factory in Switzerland. In addition,  Bulova  was highly involved in early NASA Space missions in the 1960’s and was also in the race to have the first watch worn on the moon for the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, but lost out to Omega.

Bulova remains headquartered in New York, NY, the city it was founded in and produces premium Swiss-made watches with its high-end Accu-Swiss timepieces.

In the 1930’s Ingersoll introduced watches featuring popular cartoon characters on the dial and obtained the licensing rights to Mickey Mouse watches in 1933, which led to widespread acclaim and sales.
