Every nation has things that define it. And I’m not talking about borders and languages. I’m talking about the random, visual things that say a lot about the nation. Like national animals. For America, the Eagle. China, the Panda Bear. Australia, the Kangaroo. Japan, Godzilla. And the National food? Germany, the sausage. India, curry. Canada, their version of bacon that’s actually ham. America, everyone else’s food. There are tons of other things that help define a nation. And in a weird way, the best watch in the world, the watch that set the standard in timepiece quality, and the watch that’s as Swiss as hot chocolate and blonde ponytails, has oddly become a watch that also defines America. Yes, it didn’t originally belong to us. But neither did most of the people of live here. That’s America, a melting pot of peoples and cultures. We embrace the things that make other nations great and make them our own, since that’s what we are, too. Swiss Army was the watch that everyone all over the world used for decades. It made the pocketknife that Boy Scouts first cut their fingers with. And to this day, that quality has stayed with them. So we at JomaDeals are proud to bring you this Swiss Military, this classic with coveted Swiss Quartz movement, and for the first time on our site, interchangeable watchbands. So you can go all-natural with a brown leather band, or go sleek with a stainless steel one. Whatever you feel like. That’s the beauty of America (if you’re not from America, sorry to turn this into a “America is so great” speech, but then again, it’s not, since I’m just saying that America is only great because we stole the great things everyone else did and made them our own, but now I’m making Americans mad. I can’t win).

About Swiss Military
Hans Noll came to Biel in 1961, following a broad-based commercial career, and took over the European sales management responsibility for a mid-sized watch factory. In 1963, following a management changeover, he left this company to set up his own business with his wife. As sufficient capital was not available to buy a brand for himself, he used his imagination and blended the founder's name Hans Noll with the word Watch, giving birth to the brand name Hanowa. Already after only a few years, watches were being produced under own management, giving Hanowa right from the outset a reputation for fantasy watches (ring watches, pendant watches, clip watches, watch sets and much more). For the past 15 years, the company has adapted itself to the changing market trend and converted its production over to sports watches. Thus the "Swiss Military" brand was born. Soon afterwards sister brand "Swiss-Eagle" followed, appealing to the same target audience but offering special, exclusive models.
