Rado Wrist Watches In Steel &...
Armitron is a watch brand manufactured by E. Gluck Corporation, headquartered in Little Neck, New York. It was founded in 1956 by its current President, Eugen Gluck.
At the time of Armitron’s founding, E. Gluck Corporation (then E. Gluck Trading Company) was a subsidiary of Armin Corporation. Specializing in LED-powered, five-function (hour, minutes, second, day and date) digital watches, the Armitron brand name is a combination of “Armin” and “electronics”.
As watch technology evolved, and LED technology became less practical, LCD (liquid crystal display) displays were integrated into Armitron watches. Combined with Japanese quartz movements, these LCD watches were extremely accurate and durable. Soon, advanced functionality, such as alarms and chronographs were implemented to enhance the benefits of this precise timekeeping.
Through the 1980s, Armitron was widely identified by its connection with various professional sports teams and professional athletes. Jerry Rice, Boomer Esiason, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Larry Bird and others were endorsers of the brand. Armitron remains an Official Sponsor of the New York Yankees, today.
Today, Armitron continues to produce a range of quartz and automatic movement timepieces for men and women.
