Collector's Guide to the SKIPJACK Collection

A Timeless Fusion of Tradition and Innovation

The Skipjack Collection stands as a testament to the interplay between classic design principles and contemporary innovation. Emerging from a purposeful collaboration between traditional and progressive ideas, this timepiece illuminates the enduring utility of historical innovations.

A Tribute to Maritime Legacy

Drawing inspiration from the iconic sailing vessels that graced Chesapeake Bay in the late 1800s, the Skipjack Collection pays homage to a rich maritime heritage.  Inspired by the Maryland Skipjack vessels, these low-draft boats have sailed the seas since the War of 1812, symbolizing local shipbuilding prowess. Originally crafted to meet the growing demand for oysters, the Skipjack vessels have evolved into symbols of the Chesapeake region's nautical legacy, now used to dredge blue crabs from the bay's shallow waters.

The watch captures the iconic profile of these vessels, bringing their utility and elegance to the wrist. This deep connection between the past and present infuses the Skipjack Collection with a timeless essence. 

Just like the Skipjack vessels, the SKJ100 and PRIDE II are designed to endure and perform reliably whenever called upon. It stands as an instrument explicitly designed for lasting utility and value. Designed, prototyped, finished, and assembled in Baltimore, MD, USA.

As collectors embrace the Skipjack Collection, they acquire a bridge between history and modernity.
