Monday 4th July marks the 235th anniversary of the US declaration of independence from Great Britain. What better way to mark the birthday of a superpower than with a watch from a classic US designer?
The Watch Hut has watches available from a wide range of American watch companies including Timex, Jorg Gray and Fossil. But lots of other exciting choices exist for the watch lover.
One watch that has come to symbolise the American tradition in watch making has been Hamilton watches. It's American soul is captured in all its watches but particularly in the Jazzmaster series, which signifies the deep routes of Jazz music in the Southern United States. Jazz is seen as quintessentially American and has been referred to as America’s Classical Music and ‘America’s only native art form’.
Another watch with an American connection are those in the DKNY watchescollection designed by New York local Donna Karan. These watches take their inspiration from the street style found all over the five boroughs of New York.
For a more Californian vision of watch design, the avid fan of Americana could do worse than check out the sleek lines of Guess watches.
With a few days left until the big day itself there is still time to satisfy your desire for an American watch.
