In Kobold’s own words:
“We set out with a simple goal: to build the first serially produced American watch using as many U.S. made components as possible… The case is 100% U.S.-made, we even found a company to produce the domed sapphire crystal stateside… This handwound version of the Spirit of America is powered by a Swiss-made ETA caliber 6497. Conceived, designed, assembled and tested in USA from domestic and imported components.” -Kobold
