Local company puts watches together to help local vets home

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - A Quincy company is doing its part to support local veterans.

Illinois Watch Company owner Craig Stone says it's piecing together Minuteman brand watches.  Each watch takes about 45 minutes to an hour to assemble, and are built to order.

The company says it donates a quarter of its profits to military-based organizations. While that's a big project for the company, Stone says it's also working on some new things.

"This year, we're planning on producing a few pieces that are completely in-house produced," Stone said. "We don't know if we're going to be able to do everything, but we're gonna do quite a lot here in-house."

Stone says the company has put together about 200 Minuteman watches.  He says the 25 percent share of any Minuteman watch sold in the store will go to the veteran's home in Quincy.
