Looking Back

Due to such limited production of our collections over the years, many favorites from the past are no longer available for purchase, but shouldn't be forgotten.

Triple Crown

Released in 2006, the Triple Crown’s name immediately gives the sense of the award-winning quality of the watch while also being totally descriptive. As part of the Towson Moonphase Chronograph Collection, this 39mm model is exceptional in its stylish adaptability. It comes complete with three different interchangeable bezel options, 18-karat white, rose and yellow gold. Through sapphire crystals on the front and back, the detailing of this piece is impeccable. The Swiss-made ETA Valjoux 7751, 25 jewel automatic movement is of detailed engraving in such a way that is meant to be seen and proud to be shown. The movement powers center hands for hours, minutes, chronograph fly-back, and date indication. The twelve’clock sundial is for second readings and bears windows for day and month. The six’clock sundial shows twelve-hour timing with a window for the moonphase indication and the nine’clock sundial is another twenty-four hour register.


Gold Potomac

This sophisticated model, inspired by the Maryland river that flows into the Chesapeake Bay, is encased in a handmade 14k gold case. The exhibition sapphire crystal on the back provides a view of the intricate hand-skeletonized, engraved movement. This elegant timepiece is rounded off with gold-plated cathedral-style hands which add a striking finish to the overall graceful style of this Potomac.

The solid gold 14k case has a diameter of 42mm and width of 11mm, encapsulating a solid silver handmade guilloche dial with Roman numerals.
