Let the Swiss have the Alps. This Montana-based watchmaker has the majesty of Yellowstone in its backyard, and it’s forgone the prestigious COSC certification (which requires that a watch be assembled in Switzerland), opting to make the B1 Hellcat in the United States.
Bozeman Watch Company makes mechanical watches inspired by American watches of the 19th and 20th centuries. Although quartz watches, many of which are now made overseas, have dominated the market since the 70’s, Bozeman aims to bring the America’s century long legacy as the world’s best watch makers back with their classic pieces. Unsurprisingly, the Bozeman Watch Company hails from Bozeman, Montana.
