Livingston, MT, March 2014- Montana Watch Company began creating custom timepieces in October 1998. Originating with the Model 1915 in homage to early American wristwatches, The Montana Watch Company expanded to include 9 models, all designed, assembled, and tested in Livingston, Montana by Owner/Founder Jeffrey Nashan, with production limited to 75-100 watches per year. The cases are machined in nearby Manhattan, Montana.
“Fifteen years ago I created the Montana Watch Company to rekindle the great American heyday of watch manufacture.” Mr. Nashan explains. “My first watch was the classic Model 1915. I am commemorating our successful fifteen years with this limited fifteen-piece re-edition of the model that started me on my journey”.
In addition to limited edition series, The Montana Watch Company specializes in creating custom, one-of-a-kind timepieces, inspiring discerning clientele to create bespoke, functional heirlooms to be passed down and treasured for generations. Montana Watch collaborates with Master Artisans, offering endless options such as hand sculpting and engraving, gem-setting, hand-tooled leather straps, and even proprietary case designs.
The commemorative edition is available in three distinctive designs; Classic, Western Design, and Western Design Premium, epitomizing Montana Watch Company’s passion for early Americana and Western influence, while catering to individual taste. All three variations begin with a solid Argentium silver, open display back case, which is capped with utilitarian wire lugs. Other shared elements include Super LumiNova sport hands sweeping across a Grand Feu, baked-enamel dial protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and a 29 Jewel, self-winding, Swiss mechanical movement.
The Model 1915 R Classic embodies the traditional, clean design of early wristwatches, while the Model 1915 Western Design evokes a bit of Cowboy flare with the addition of hand-engraved Western single-point line work. The Model 1915 Western Design Premium draws particular focus to the artistry offered by Montana Watch Company. Handcrafted with Western single-point engraving in deep relief, the Western Design Premium variation is further embellished with four, solid gold, hand-sculpted overlays and a gold winding crown, each regally graced with a genuine ruby, the traditional 15th anniversary gemstone. The piece is finished with a hand-tooled and stitched saddle leather strap fitted to the case with solid gold, transitional-style wire lugs.
