We here at the River Watch Company are watch enthusiasts, and have been for years. We are a new company based out of British Columbia, Canada, in the small city of Chilliwack, nestled in the heart of the Fraser River Valley.
We love vintage watches – sleek diving watches from the '50s and '60s, wonderful art deco examples from the '20s and '30s, robust military field models from the '70s and so on.
We love looking at these beautiful old machines, but they have several problems for a collector. First, they can be very expensive – examples in good condition can cost thousands. Second, with age, no matter how well preserved, comes fragility – seals break down over time, water resistance is lost, and if something breaks, parts can be very hard to find.
We felt that with time and energy, we could bring you something different – watches with modern amenities, like a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, excellent water resistance, brilliant luminescent detailing and modern, very reliable movements, but recalling some of that fantastic style that makes vintage watches so highly valued.
Our goal is to bring this to you at an affordable price, with incredible specifications and excellent customer service.
We hope that you like what you see. We can't wait for the next step in the history of the River Watch Company!
