Minuteman Watch Co. and Team Rubicon Join Forces

The American brand Minuteman Watch Co. in conjunction with charity Team Rubicon have just announced that they are starting to accept pre-orders for their new series of watches. These watches will be assembled in the United States by highly skilled American watchmakers.

The Team Rubicon watch is a collaborative effort between Minuteman Watches and the charity  Team Rubicon.  A portion of the sale from each watch will go to Team Rubicon. Team Rubicon focuses on serving vulnerable and at-risk populations affected by disasters. The teams are largely made up of former military. 

The Team Rubicon special edition watch is available in four versions:

Here are the specifications for the above watches:
  • Proudly assembled in the USA by Minuteman Watch Co.
  • Stainless Steel case with choice of brushed finish, or black DLC finish.
  • K1 crystal.
  • Anti-reflective coating on the inside of the crystal.
  • 42mm width without crown.
  • 100 meter water resistant.
  • Military style Zulu/Nato watch strap
  • Ronda 715 quartz movement.
  • Luminous hands and dial.
For those ordering from the USA the donation will go to Team Rubicon in the United States. If you order from Canada, United Kingdom, or Australia the money will go to the Team Rubicon organization in those countries.

2/12/18 Update: Minuteman has altered its forthcoming Team Rubicon Limited Edition, but fans of the design need not panic. They have merely switched from red/white to white/red to better match Team Rubicon’s grey shirts.

So far, the 100 piece run has been selling well. Minuteman reports that half the buyers are women, which is interesting considering that it is a 42mm field watch. Women make up a vanishingly small percentage of microbrand watch buyers, in no small part due to the fact that few microbrands offer women’s watches at all, and of those who have tried, few have been successful. It would be fascinating if this were the watch to buck the trend. ⬩
