As the first serially produced American watch in 39 years, the Spirit of America wrote history.
The Spirit of America is Kobold's answer to the practice of shipping American manufacturing jobs overseas. 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 skeletonized and hand-engraved Swiss-made ETA caliber 6497. Conceived, designed, assembled and tested in USA from domestic and imported components. Calfskin strap. 3 year warranty. Case Made in USA.
