"To influence the future,
one must respect the past."
Without the relentless pursuit of perfection, watchmaking simply does not exist. For NIALL to truly invent the future, we understand that we must learn from and respect the traditions of Swiss watchmaking. Leveraging the spirit and talents of American innovation, NIALL has the opportunity to define a new set of standards.

A.M.L - Additive Micro Layering
In March of 2015 NIALL began investing in technology to bring dial production in-house - in totality. By February of 2016 the first product utilizing this new technology was debuted.
The timepiece bearing this new technology was none other than the iconic Fieldhouse Blue. An officially licensed timepiece by the University of Kansas - where the sport of basketball was invented by James Naismith in 1891. On the dial of the Fieldhouse Blue is the 13 Rules of Basketball micro-inscribed on the dial through our AML technology.

Pioneering Corning® Gorilla® Glass in the Luxury Watchmaking Industry
Through a partnership with Corning, a company with a 160-year history of innovation, we delivered a first for the watchmaking industry, Gorilla® Glass. This material is a chemically-enhanced super-glass with 2.5x the break resistance of sapphire. The result of this collaboration is a highly durable protective super-glass that is unique to NIALL One.3 timepieces and advances the standards for design and innovation.
Sourcing & Manufacturing Complex Components In the U.S.A.
Since 2012 NIALL has been on mission to source and manufacture as much as possible in the United States. Through this process lead to opportunities for the development of watchmaking components, in America, that had previously been manufactured in Switzerland, Germany or China. This includes the sourcing of USA grown sapphire crystals, USA manufactured dials, mid-cases, crowns, crown tubes, gaskets and more.
