Our watches are particularly great for anyone interested in American history. Our watches are inspired by a chance connection between me and my 6th great-grandfather who fought in the American Revolution and died 200 years – to the day – of me being born. Captain Henry Diefendorff, our company’s namesake, served in a militia in upstate New York, then the wild west of the time. He was the son of Swiss immigrants which is why our watches are made with a Swiss movement.
We also used the American Revolution as an inspiration for our design – there are 17 big lines and 76 small lines in the fluting on the watch – the 1776 Case & Bezel.
