    Help name our upcoming American built #Minuteman MM1 wrist watch series.

    Many have suggested we name each series of watches. We are considering doing that with our upcoming MM1 series. We would like use a name that is patriotic and a part of American history or. One that has a connection with our military. Based on that what name/s do you suggest?

    Here are a couple random suggestions (not responsible for cheesiness):
    Liberty
    Executive
    Founder
    Declaration
    Freedom
    Independence
    Perseverance


    I'd stick with something that related to Americana, not necessarily military.

    Being "Minute Men" watches I would suggest naming each series after the town where a significant revolutionary war battle was fought.
    Lexington, Saratoga, Bunker Hill, etc..
    Of course one risks confusion with some WWII aircraft carriers.

    I like those. They are very similar to a particular Seiko I have been eye balling... I need to check your website for details on that one.
    Coffee hasn't kicked in yet, so these are the only names I can think of right now.

    * Patriot
    * Revolution
    * Constitution

    I'm going to second Paul Revere, but drop the Paul.

    The Revere series.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions.

    Here are some photo's I just got in of the PVD versions. Thus far the white dial seems to be the most popular.

    We are still trying to find the perfect name for this series. We quite like Patriot but our friends at Resco Instruments already use that on a series that's quite popular for them.

    So if you fine folks have any more ideas please feel free to share those.

    Just a heads up MTM Special Ops watches also uses the Patriot name.

    I expect other brands may also use it. Which to me seems like we would just get lost in the shuffle if we used Patriot as well.

    I enjoy coming up with names for products, so aside from my previous post, how about:

    -Revolutionary
    -Frontier Series
    -Militia/Militiamen (not necessarily a stigma to this name)
    - Guardsman
    - Watchman (double entrendre :) )
    - Valor/Resolute/Intrepid etc. The US aircraft carriers have a good history of apt names, imo.
