I was, and I can tell you I had a fantastic experience at a local store called Watchworks. I was in Portland, Oregon enjoying the sights and celebrating my friend's 40th birthday when I decided to look up some watch shops. Why not? No sales tax in Portland!
Now before I go any further, I’m sure your thinking, 'Rick, you own a watch brand, you do know you shouldn’t tell people about the competition!'
I have to believe if you have the disease of being a watch fanatic, and you’re willing to build a watch yourself, you probably own more than one watch!
Cincinnati is the home of the Verdin Clock Company.
I have driven past both the Verdin Clock Co. wharehouse an infinite number of times and don't know how I did not recognize the name. I discovered the company by admiring the municipal clocks all over Cincinnati; in admiring the clock's dial up close, squinting to see on the clock face to read, The Verdin Watch Co". I Google that to find that, that wharehouse literally down the street from me is the Verdin Clock Co.! Their making clocks and bells in there!
Every Cincinati Neighborhood in Cincinnati has a Verdin Clock
