Finding North

A behind the scenes look at the inspiration behind TWC's NORTH.er

The compass and watch are two of the most groundbreaking innovations in the history of mankind, serving as tools for survival and progress.

 


The compass and timepiece share a common innovative significance, yet a horological complication that combines the two is quite a novelty in watchmaking. For ages, non-digital wrist compasses have been developed for the military, but they never told the time. These vintage wrist compasses inspired us to create the NORTH.er. A timepiece capable of assisting ones sense of direction.

An automatic GMT timepiece crafted for the outdoorsman. This uniquely designed instrument produces clear readability in all conditions, featuring highly fluorescent SuperLuminova hour markers and rounded yellow-coated blued steel cathedral-style hands on the black dial. The German stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal exhibitionist caseback ensures the timepiece’s 5 ATM water resistance. A high-grade 24 jewel Swiss Cal. 2893-2 automatic movement is adjusted by TWC watchmakers to allow the GMT function to guide the direction of North. Production limited to 100. Available in the genuine leather strap of your choice.



This classically crafted, self winding timepiece was designed with rough weather conditions and the art of exploration in mind. The North.er is built for the outdoorsman who appreciates the utility of the tool on their wrist. The satin-finished, stainless steel case was engineered for resilience against the unpredictable lifestyle of a sportsman while retaining a classic aesthetic of elegance. From an inspiration to a timepiece, the North.er exists to assist outdoorsman with direction when they need it most. A timepiece for aviators, business professionals and outdoorsman. Aviators like the clear and readable dial design in all light conditions. The 24hr scale represents standard time used in aviation and maritime sphered. People traveling the world are able to adjust the watch to a second time zone while hikers are able to use it as a compass to establish North. The Towson Watch Company dedicated this timepiece to all outdoorsman, travelers, and explorers of the world.

The North.er is only available in one variation, featuring a black dial, yellow, and green numerals and TWC style super LumiNova hands. The contrast between the hands, the matte black background and co-ordinating colored numerals make it easy to read, even under glittering daylight conditions. The stainless steel case, water resistant to 5 ATM has a domed sapphire crystal on the front. A sapphire crystal on the back exhibits a highly decorated Cal. 2893-2 24j movement. A natural or black leather strap makes this watch a timepiece for all occasions. (Also available with a stainless steel mesh bracelet with folding clasp).
