The Choptank E250 drew inspiration from the Chesapeake Region's industrial heritage and style. The beacons shining light on the Choptank River stand today as sentinels of maritime history & industrial innovation in the Chesapeake region. Having guided schooners, skipjacks, and steamboats through shallow waters at night during the industrial boom. Reproduced years later to serve as a visual icon of local revitalization. Our watchmakers wanted to translate the material legacy of these beacons into a horological form with the CHOPTANK timepiece - bringing the legacy of American industrial pastime & present to the wrist.
