Minutmen A11: Watches assembled in the USA with assembled in the USA movements

Introducing the Minuteman A11 military watch. Many of you no doubt are familiar with the WWII era A11 watch. This is our brands take on the iconic watch that won World War II. 

These watches will be carefully assembled by hand in the great state of Arizona by FTS USA for our Minuteman brand. These watches feature Ameriquartz USA movements. The Ameriquartz is a new to the market movement that is assembled and programmed in Fountain Hills, Arizona USA using American and globally sourced components. 

FTS is a company that most of you will not as of yet be familiar with. Here is some info from their website. 

"FTS USA is the only commercial source for quartz watch movements made in the United States. FTS dedicates space for assembly, testing, and manufacturing within the 69,000 square foot East Valley Institute of Technology’s Fountain Hills Business Accelerator campus.

Our team of certified technicians create and test our Ameriquartz movements under the watchful eye of one of the most respected certified master watchmakers in North America, Mr. Manuel J. Yazijian. He is a CMW21 watchmaker and the former president of the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI).

FTS works in partnership with Titan Company Ltd (a TATA Group Company), the 5th largest watch company in the world. They deliver perfection and cutting-edge technology to FTS USA.

The trademark Ameriquartz speaks volumes. Each quartz movement is accurately made of metal components and jeweled to the highest industry standards at our facility by local American technicians. Most importantly, the movements are fully serviceable and spare parts are always available.

Ameriquartz offers a wide range of sizes. The collection is comprised of movements small enough to fit a petite ladies watch and movements large enough for the most robust sports designs. The Ameriquartz line offers a variety of displays that will fit any designer’s vision including a multitude of calendars, moon phases, world time, and more.

FTS USA operates at the highest standards of quality control to integrate, assemble, and test both domestic and foreign components into finished movements. Our logistics and inventory management ensure that FTS USA will be your solution for every aspect of the watchmaking experience."

 

Part of the proceeds from each Minuteman A11 watch we sell in 2019 will go to the great charity Homes For Our Troops. Here is some info about this great charity from the charity itself. "Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post – 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents out of every dollar spent has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives." To learn more about this fine charity we urge you to visit their website.
