Who We Are

AWA is a powerful coalition.

The American Watch Association is able to exert much greater influence in Washington and the States than individual watch companies alone can.

The American Watch Association provides its members exclusive information and advice.

American Watch Association members receive legal and lobbying benefits whose value exceeds the costs of annual dues. For instance, AWA member companies, and only AWA members, have access to formal legal opinions from our attorneys at the blue-chip Washington law firm Covington & Burling, providing a compelling legal basis for exemptions from onerous Federal regulations concerning hazardous materials rules.

AWA supports its members.

The AWA provides a vehicle for our members to submit required data (e.g. for mercury button cells and for lead content) in aggregate format, thus allowing companies to protect their confidential operating information.
