Originally designed for NASA astronauts two decades ago, as Commander Thiele of the Endeavor spacecraft wanted an American-Made watch for his STS-99 mission in 2000. These chronographs proved to serve as faithful companions to the astronauts mapping the earth’s surface from the south of Greenland to the northern edge of the Antarctic. This inspired our signature M250 Mission Chronograph. A line of references that has evolved over the years while retaining its true purpose - to serve as a professional instrument.
