Minuteman Watches today announced reinforcements in its campaign to raise money for Homes for Our Troops – the Minuteman Parker Chronograph Wristwatch.
The Parker Chronograph is named after Captain John Parker. Parker commanded the Lexington Patriot colonial militia at the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775. The watch features a variety of different color options for its face (including the beautiful “panda” black-and-white face) and is hand-made in the USA by Minuteman Watch Co.
The Illinois-based watch manufacturer recently selected Homes For Our Troops to be its 2019 nonprofit partner. That means that a portion of all sales of Minuteman watches for this year (including the new Parker) will go to help Homes For Our Troops build adaptive homes for severely injured post 9/11 veterans.
The company hopes to raise $10K for the charity through sales of its 2019 watches.
“Helping our veterans is one of the core principles of our company,” says Minuteman Watches owner Thomas Carey. “We are honored to be able to bring these fine warriors a little bit closer to owning their own homes with each watch we sell this year.”
The Minuteman Parker brushed watches are presale priced at $399, and the DLC watches are presale priced at $419. Following the company’s presale launch, the price of the brushed watch will increase to $569, and the DLC to $599.
