California based Xetum Watches produce some very interesting timepieces, the relatively new company uses modern, American designs and powers them with ETA 2824-2 Swiss automatic watch movements – the same internal architecture used by luxury brands like Cartier, Breitling and Bell & Ross.
Xetum watches all use a sapphire front crystal, surgical grade stainless steel, they’re water-resistant down to 100 metres and they come with a 2 year warranty. This model, the Stinson, retails for $995 USD, which is a fraction of the price of other wrist watches built to this level.
