We guarantee our Mission Timers will last a lifetime. We’ve sourced the finest components and hired the most talented watchmakers to build your custom ARES timer.
If our watch fails in the course of normal use, we will replace it. Period.
What is the ARES Mission Timer
An ARES Mission Timer is a precise timing instrument maximized for intuitive visual display of time measurement across two modes: elapsed mission time (EMT) and remaining mission time (RMT).
ARES® Watch Company is a boutique manufacturer of small batch, individually created American Mission Timers. We live by the rule: one watchmaker, one watch.
From your initial order to our in-house packaging, your ARES® Mission Timer is built for you. Your watchmaker builds your watch every step of the way. While we recognize the value in building your watch specifically for you, we also strive to maintain an inventory of “small batch” pieces in stock. Whether individualized or small batch, your individually serialized Mission Timer is guaranteed for life.
We source premium components from ateliers around the world, and we build and finish as many components as we can in-house. We have the best people making the best timers with the best available components for you, and we stand behind it with the best warranty. All ARES® quartz and automatic Mission Timers utilize premiere Swiss movements, and our watchmakers machine, hand fit, assemble, test, certify, and service each of our watches from our small shop in the Pacific Northwest.
The development of ARES Mission Timers have undergone over 20,000 hours of hard-use, mission-driven, operational testing and evaluation around the world.
