Since it’s July, and the 4th is just around the corner, we thought it would be great if we could get an American watch in the mix.  Thing of it is, there aren’t a lot of American watch manufacturers these days, especially ones who could turn something around for us at short notice.  Then, we remembered our pals over at Smith & Bradley.

We thought perhaps we could get them to through some swag in for the giveaway, but they went a step further, and offered up a brand-new Sans-13 watches (in Pelican case) for the contest .  And, given that this is a watch that’s on the wrists of active duty military and police personnel, it seemed like a fitting watch for the giveaway.


It’s pretty easy to throw your hat in the ring for the Smith & Bradley Sans-13 giveaway – just go ahead and follow those steps in the widget below, and good luck!  Then, while you’re waiting, feel free to check out my hands-on review of the Sans-13 over on ABTW.



Our special thanks to Smith & Bradley stepping in at the last minute to sponsor the giveaway!

  1. Gotta love the Hamilton Ventura line, the odd shape is always a good conversation starter!

  2. Great looking watch and thanks to them for donating it for a give away! Happy 4th, all!

  3. Favorite American watch? I have always loved the Hamilton Khaki Field Officer Auto, because of its classic styling and easy readability.

  4. I like the American Made Smith and Bradley Sans-13. The tritum tubes and it’s 43mm size are perfect for me. Very readable dial. Great watch! Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. I’m a fan of the Shinola Runwells. I was pleasantly surprised by the styling of the Smith & Bradley watch; it’s definitely one I’d wear.

  6. Always had a thing for Hamilton’s 🙂 But I’m really digging these Smith & Bradley’s. Thanks for the giveaway guys!!

  7. The Sans-13 is actually my favorite!!! If i could change one thing it would be the white rectangles from 0-20. I would like to see those all around.

  8. This is a great looking time piece! I wish that there was a way to light up the face late at night. Glowing hands only work for so long. This Smith and Bradley is in my top 10 favorite watches right now.

  9. My favorite american watch has to be bulova. I have a 52 clipper that is nice and still runs well after 62 years.

  10. I liked this watch since I saw it on kickstarter! I might extend the minute hand just a fraction and put in an auto movement; eta or myota. But I love the styling!

  11. My favourite american watch brand has to be RGM. They are timeless and classic designs with amazing craftsmanship. Especially the model 151 series.

  12. I have a thing for the old Hamilton pocket watches made in Pennsylvania. However, I would love to see one of these watches show up in my mailbox!

  13. My favorite American made watch is the Hamilton A-11. It’s a great looking watch with a great history behind it. One of the many watches I hope to own.

  14. My favorite American-made watch is the RGM Professional Diver Model # 300 Series 1 but I wish they offered tritium gas tubes.

  15. My favourite American made watches are the women’s watches from Shinola. I love my white leather runwell. However I’d love to win this for my fiancé who is in the forces! He’d love it for work 🙂
