De Pol Watch Company was founded in 2014 by Robert De Pol, American patriot and fighter pilot. His inspiration for creating a timepiece was first prompted when he noticed a significant void in the American watch-making industry. His love of Country, obsession with watches and passion for all things aviation, motivated him to design his own American-built timepiece to use in his cockpit.


In 2020 businessman and retired US fighter pilot John Nyquist
was searching for a business to combine his love of aviation,
design, and enterprise, and found it in the De Pol Watch Company.
He invested in De Pol and took the lead. Together John and
Robb are working to share the brand; designing and building
watches with high quality and great styling, rooted in aviation,
love of the USA and esprit de corps with military and civilian
aviators and customers worldwide.
