Drawing inspiration from the pioneers of early railroad transportation who traversed the region's landscapes.

The watch's functions include tracking the passage of time with its minute and hour hands, while a seconds sub-dial is positioned at the 6 o'clock mark, adding to its vintage charm.
A tribute to the bygone era of pocket watches and early railroad transportation. It encapsulates the legacy of American watchmaking, melding historical aesthetics with modern craftsmanship to create a timepiece that reflects the spirit of innovation and industry that defined that period.
