No two projects are ever the same. Deciding where to manufacture high-quality custom watches, watch dials, and cases depends on a multitude of factors.

OEM & ODM Watch Manufacturing
We offer both custom-made watches specific to your design (OEM) and in-stock, US-based watch designs that can be made “production-ready” for gifting or promotional opportunities (ODM).

Watch Manufacturing Methods
There are three basic watch manufacturing methodologies we apply at American Watch Company: one-off prototyping, batch production, and mass production.
One-offs are an opportunity to test the market and your design idea before committing to a significant production run. One-off production sometimes takes longer and is more costly than mass production, pre-production proof.
Batch production of watch products share the same watch case, and are made jointly in small or large numbers. This manufacturing method always includes tools, molds, machinery and labor.
Mass Production (Recommended)
Mass production of a watch product goes through many stages of a production line. Our watchmakers and industrial equipment guide assembly of each product part every step of the way. This manufacturing method is more cost-effective thanks to the large-scale production techniques we use.
