    Bernhardt and Fred Amos

    Ordered the Binnacle Diver today. I've read about Bernhardt's CS, but probably underestimated it (unfortunately, I just don't expect it these days). I called today to ask about estimated ship times, and dammit, Fred Amos himself picked up. I'm blown away. A simple phone call = a customer for life.

    Hope you enjoy it, I like mine a lot. Just feels well made.
    That is cool that you talked to him personally.

    I bought an Anchor III used. Emailed Fred, just to tell him how much I was enjoying it. Got a reply the next day, welcoming me to the club.

    Re: Bernhardt and Fred Amos

    Yes, Fred really cares about his customers. I sent him an email a few months back about a hairbrained scheme I had regarding a Binnacle with a different color face than was available on the website. His response was ' sure no problem' and I had the watch in 3 days. WOW . He made this 'cool blue ' Binnacle for me custom

    ( This color 'Cool Blue' has since been added to the binnacle color option and is available on the website)

    Re: Bernhardt and Fred Amos

    I want to share my story with Mr. Amos. I bought a Globemaster II, and I contacted the company's support. I am in NC, and I asked if his store would be opened on Saturday so I could drive there. He said it wasn't opened, but I could still come by. He took time off his Saturday morning to meet with me. We spent an hour chatting about his business, about his music, and he swapped my watch on the spot (just to find out later on the problem wasn't the watch, but me)

    Mr. Amos has earned a customer for life with his great service and awesome watches. He even was gracious enough to take a selfie with me

    Re: Bernhardt and Fred Amos

    I have had experiences with a number of artisan producers of many different products, not just watches. You can really tell the ones that care, it is their passion and they have it in their blood.

    Everything I hear about Bernhardt & Fred just screams to me that they are the real deal, hence one of these is definitely on my 'to buy' list.

    I met Fred last week and can tell you that he is a great person that is passionate about what he does. I have one Bernhardt, but not my last to be sure.
