Hey all -
I've actually been on WUS since around 2006, and have bought and sold many watches in that span. Like many people out there I have always wanted to create my own watch - the designing and production of a mechanical time piece just has always really appealed to me.
Recently, I decided to make it happen, and combined my love of watches and history into the Mercer Watch Company. I hail from Mercer County, NJ - so that part is obvious. What you may not know is that George Washington crossed the Delaware river back in 1776 just a stone's throw from me. Soon after, Brigadeer General Hugh Mercer was killed at the Battle of Princeton, becoming a rallying cry for the Continental army, and our county's (& comapny's) namesake in the process.
Anywhoo - we're currently designing our first piece and are really looking forward to seeing prototypes. I've learned a ton on WUS over the years, so a belated thanks for that. Keep in touch!
