Supporting future American watchmakers and a more integrated American supply chain

Watchmakers of America Directory

Calling all American watchmakers, technicians and component manufacturers!

With your help, the Cornell Watch Company is compiling a free, open-access directory of American watchmakers, technicians and component manufacturers to support existing and future American watch companies.

The Watchmakers of America Directory aims to increase transparency and integration across the American supply chain and promote the continued growth of watchmaking in America.

Please follow the link below, or email, to submit your contact information, capabilities and relevant certifications to be featured in the Watchmakers of America Directory.

Between the late 1800s and early 1900s, America made more watches than any country in the world. The return of American watchmaking begins with the return of a transparent and integrated supply chain.

Today, the fully-integrated American watch companies of the late 1800s and early 1900s no longer exist. Few American watch companies, including the RGM Watch Company, continue the legacy of the once great American watchmaking industry with fully-integrated manufacturing capabilities, while the vast majority of American watch companies rely on a disjointed global supply chain.

At the Cornell Watch Company, our goal is to help restore the prominence of the American watchmaking industry by addressing the most basic issue plaguing the domestic supply chain - human capital. Today, there is a shortage of approximately 4,000 watchmakers in America.  For every 1870 CE sold, a portion of proceeds will fund American watchmaking scholarships for students provided by the Horological Society of New York, one of the oldest continuously operating horological associations in the world.
