Our Classic Models

At Montana Watch Company, we work very closely with each of our clients from the very beginning to create a one-of-a-kind timepiece that fulfills their vision.  The first step in this process is undoubtedly the choice of case shape.  As our company has grown, we have added more classic case shapes to choose from.  Currently we have eight classic models.  Below is more information on each piece.

The Bridger Field Watch

Originally, we only offered one classic model, the Bridger Field Watch.  The inspiration for our first model came from Jim Bridger who was a well known pioneer renowned for his strength and ruggedness.  The stories of his adventures into Montana portray him as the ultimate outdoorsman, and our Bridger Field Watch exemplifies these characteristics with its solid, simple style.  To view variations of the Bridger Field Watch, please follow this link to our website.

The Model 1925

The Model 1925 is our only tonneau shaped case, and exemplifies the grace and style of the time period.  The style replicates the barrel shape of watches that were common at the time, and embodies a sense of style unique to that point in history.  To view variations of the Model 1925, please follow this link to our website.

The Officer’s Watch

During the First World War, the Trench Officer’s Watch gained popularity beyond the military and several major watch manufacturing companies began to incorporate stylistic elements to the initial practical design.  With the screw-set lugs and curved back, we have carried on the tradition of adding elegance to the Officer’s Watch design.  To view variations of the Officer’s Watch, please follow this link to our website.

The Model 1920

The Model 1920 is our most recent addition to the classic models.  Inspired by the Roaring 20′s, this watch exemplifies the carefree attitude of the time.  Mobsters, rumrunners and flappers frequented speakeasies decked out in the latest fashions and all lived life to the fullest.

The Model 1930

The earliest American watch cases were circular.  Later, as styles changed and machining techniques improved, the rectangular design was completely en vogue by 1930.  Our Model 1930 epitomizes the bold styling of this period of design.  To view variations of the Model 1930, please follow this link to our website.

Highline Aviator

The aviator watch was born from necessity during WWI.  It was simply a pocket watch fitted with wire lugs and strapped to the outside of a flight jacket.  Our Highline Aviator is a salute to those first brave men of flight. We recognize that this simplicity and practicality are a style that endures.  To view variations of the Highline Aviator, please follow this link to our website.

Sapphire

The Montana Yogo sapphire is a distinctive and natural treasure that is is prized for its unmatched beauty.  We have created this elegant timepiece for ladies with a uniqueness and style that lives up to the name Sapphire.  To view variations of the Sapphire model, please follow this link to our website.

Miles City Pocket Watch

For over fifty years, cowboys, ranchers and equestrians have traveled to Miles City, Montana for the world famous Miles City bucking horse sale.  The ruggedness and classic styling of the Miles City Edition is in perfect step with today’s pocket watch enthusiast.  To view variations of the Miles City Edition, please follow this link to our website.

    could you tell me how many model 1915′s were made? and which of your current line did it precede, if any.

    thanks again.

      Brett- sorry for the delay in answering. There were 100 1915′s built. The model was our first and the design is most similar to the Bridger Field. Each model is custom at this juncture whereas the 1915 were all identical.

    I purchased a watch at the CSF at Richard Childress event and I returned to you and wanted to get on like that you made and I had it changed to show my logo for Bucking Bulls and my wife has taken it over. I would like to trade in the one that I returned for one like that you did before except I have a different face of another bull.Do you have self winding?
