This year marks the 80th for the Canadian watchmaker in providing purposeful, Swiss Made timepieces with stringent criteria for military services. In the past, Marathon fabricated watches only to equip armed forces and service members. In the recent two decades, they decided to provide equally reliable watches for the rest of the world, and are we glad that they did. This short clip by Marathon briefs through the decades of sheer hard work by the Wein family and how they continue to keep the traditional manufacturing of robust timepieces with a genuine military ethos.
Gnomon Watches first opened her doors for business online in early 2002, founded by bona fide horology suitors who share a profound passion for watchmaking and fine craftsmanship.
