America’s participation and dominance on the world stage began with the invention of the American System of Manufacturing. From about 1850 to 1950 American manufacturers became the largest suppliers of fine mechanical watches to the world. 1970 brought the introduction of the quartz movement as the newest technology, and the mechanical watch industry was nearly put out of commission in both Europe and America. In 1980 Bulova, the last of the American watch manufacturing titans, closed its doors. This giant once employed over 7000 people, and though the brand still exists along with other notable American companies like Hamilton, those which remain are now owned by large conglomerates. Only the names carry on, not the livlihood once offered tens of thousands of families in America. These events left the United States with no part in the world market of timepiece manufacturing. We of the Bozeman Watch Company endeavor to reintroduce American watch making, and we give thanks to our friends and clients who have provided so much support and guidance throughout the start of our journey. Our ultimate goal is to provide the world with a new perspective and style that has been long lost with trendy and mass produced brands.
The Bozeman Watch Company is an American Watch Manufacturer located in Bozeman Montana USA.
