Roland G. Murphy sure has a sense of history…and quality…attributes that fit well his founding of the RGM Watch Company in Mount Joy, PA. The company specializes in “boutique,” high-end mechanical watches and antique watch restoration.
From Murphy’s introduction of the company’s base in an old bank building — complete with antique bank vault — to his step-by-step tour through the watch construction, restoration and repair stages, you sense a deep appreciation of classic watchmaking, including the Swiss tradition. The attention to quality has created a worldwide reputation, and brought John Ratzenberger’s “Made in America” Travel Channel show to RGM Watches for a company profile.
It’s American craftmanship as a global standard of quality. As the company proclaims, “RGM is not a conventional luxury watch brand. Some of our watches feature exceptional complicated movement such as a Minute Repeating Perpetual Calendar, a Tourbillon, an Automatic Chronograph with Moonphase and a rose gold Skeleton Chronograph – just a few of RGM’s highlights. RGM’s reputation rests on its technical prowess and aesthetic beauty rather than a famous name. ”
