What’s on your wrist this year as you celebrate the Fourth of July? As an iW reader, we’re guessing something automatic or manual winding, possibly made in Switzerland (like this red, white and blue watch we showed you last year from Ulysse Nardin), Germany or Japan.
We’re generalizing of course, but given the sales figures for wristwatches, these guesses are likely pretty close to what you’ll find on the wrists of the watch-aware at picnics, firework displays and parades nationwide on this long (for some) Independence Day weekend.
Increasingly, we’re also seeing watches designed, sourced and in some cases assembled in the United States finding their way to many readers’ wrists. We’ve shown you a few of these over the years in general posts in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Today, however, we’ll remind you of fourteen domestically designed automatic or manual-wind offerings we’ve seen in the past year.

trends, the unique culture of collectors, and more.
