"We disrupted the Germans' plan. They were going to go cut across and capture Antwerp and tried to divide the American Army. But we changed the war. We stopped them at Bastogne, and they never made it. During Bastogne, things were bad. And we were running out of food and artillery. The Germans came in with their flags and told us we were surrounded. They wanted the Americans to surrender. They thought that maybe we would surrender. The answer our commander, Gen. Anthony McAuliffe gave them was ʻNuts.’ He was our commander in the Battle of the Bulge."

Speranza spent 144 days in combat. For his service, and other medals of distinction, he received two Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars. After the war, Vince became a teacher at Curtis High School — most recently, he recounted the events attached to his years in the military in his books, "Nuts! A 101st Airborne Division Machine Gunner at Bastogne".

Dad of three, grandfather of nine, and great-grandfather of five, Vince Speranza lives by his words "Fai sempre cose biome." Always do good things.

Inspired by the M1919 Browning Vince Speranza was manning during the "Battle of the Bulge", we're delivering you this Limited Edition A-11 watch to commemorate his grit and tenacity as he defended our freedom.

A DIAL THAT TELLS A STORY

When Vince manned his post at the "Battle of the Bulge", it was cold and dark. That's why we chose a black dial with luminous hands and indexes for this watch, so it's highly visible in low-light conditions.

UNIQUE STRAP DESIGN

Vince's only companion at that time was his M1919 Browning machine gun, which he clung unto for dear life. To pay tribute to his best ally, we offer you two unique straps with barrel holes and an embossed image of the gun.

COMMEMORATIVE CASEBACK

Vince's story is epic beyond measure, a story that is worth telling to every generation. And a Vince Speranza watch without a bullet would make no sense so, we embed it on the caseback. How cool is that?
