I am ex-USAF veteran and developed Mitchell Timepieces through my passion for watches and military aircraft. We label ourselves as a Pilot brand – taking design cues from both modern and historic military aircraft.
What makes us different? Mitchell Timepieces didn’t start because someoneprovided me with a business loan, or grant, I started designing watches and buying parts until I had a watch that I thought was something unique and desirable.
I want my timepieces to be a tribute, not only to the men and women in the USAF that I served with, but in the bigger picture – men and women that stand up and say“Yes I will risk my life for a greater cause.” I am honouring them whether they are in USA, UK or Australia etc.
Our goal is to be a very exclusive brand, producing excellent watches of short runs of between 10 to 50 pieces. This allows us to have complete control over all aspects of production and quality control.
When I ship out a Mitchell Timepiece, I am putting my name on it. Each watch is designed and assembled in the United States using high quality watch movements and components.
I want you, our customers, to feel as proud to own a Mitchell Timepiece as we are to produce them.
Warthog Indiegogo link: https://igg.me/at/Mitchelltimepieces/x/20674763
The Warthog is our latest timepiece, named after the A-10 Thunderbolt – affectionally known as the ‘Warthog’ due to its endearing looks.
Anyone who has ever seen the Warthog in action knows how ‘in your face’ anddevasting a fighting vehicle it is – something that you’d never forget. Hence, I chose a large diameter case – with an emblem of the Warthog at the 10 position and a sub- second dial to represent the Gau-8 Avenger. I chose a slow-beat swiss movement –as sure, the Warthog is not the fastest plane – but it’s as reliable as hell and willcarry on regardless of whatever is thrown at it.
The full Specs are:
44mm diameter 316L Stainless Steel Case Domed Sapphire Crystal with AR coating Manual Wind Eta 6498
Luminous dial and hands
Lug width 22mm

* PVD Models do not have a riveted strap option at this time.
I know Mitchell Timepieces isn’t for everyone and I’m not trying to compete with the other Microbrands. I just want to produce timepieces that I find are interesting and I hope others will too.
