The Mission Moon Series

Hartwig Balke, one of the founders of Towson Watch Company

In 1999, a NASA astronaut commissioned Hartwig Balke to make an automatic chronograph for his STS-99 mission in outer space. Towson's chronometer helped solve the looming question of whether an automatic watch works in outer space. Our MISSION MOON evolves the line with utilitarian intentions - featuring a full-calendar complication set.

Series One MISSION MOON evolves the Mission Chronograph with functional enhancements for collectors and professionals seeking to experience the many complications offered in mechanical horology. Now powered by the modified 7751 Swiss Caliber. A visual return to the MISSION I with a formally-refined design language featuring rhodium applications on the dial, high-polishes and coined detailing on the case. Artisanal embellishments make the professional tool-grade instrument fit for the sophisticated tastes of collectors and everyday business professionals. Limited to 250 timepieces per dial color (silver, black, copper).

Series Two MISSION MOON returns to the core intentions of the collection. Offering the professional-grade utility of the original chronometer while highlighting the formal elegance of the inspired branded line of chronographs that came after. Taking the stainless steel case of the MISSION II and slightly modifying it to accommodate the enhanced 7751 caliber developed for the former MISSION MOON I. Now featuring a day-correcting-pusher installed on the left side of the 42mm stainless steel case and crown guards to ensure the precision, accuracy and longevity of the movement that once helped prove an automatic watch works in outer space. Limited to 250 timepieces per dial color (silver or black with tachymeter choice). 

The MISSION MOON retains the spirit of Towson's dedication to craftsmanship, combining practical utility with intricate watchmaking expertise. Proven in Outer Space.
