The first collection of 250 Mission chronographs features the signature TWC shield logo. Available in a silver, black or multi-tone guilloche dial with a tachymeter. Encased in a high-polish 40mm stainless steel case with an exhibition back and two free-standing chronograph pushers. The design of the instrument replicates the chronographs made for the astronauts aboard the Endeavour spacecraft on the STS-99 mission in 2000. Significant technical differences include scratch-resistant anti-reflex sapphire crystal opposed to acrylic, coined edges and smoother lines, and engine-turned patterning on the dial. These intricate additions achieve a premium feel and formal appeal. With these adoptions, the Mission M250 triple chronograph is the ultimate sports watch for a professional.

The Mission Chronograph was originally made for a group of astronauts on a NASA STS-99 mission in 2000. The predecessor to our current M250-2 was tested and proven in outer space, serving as a reliable instrument to those aboard the Endeavour spacecraft. It was the first wristwatch worn in outer space of the new millennium. A legacy continued today in the Mission Collection. Each series - M250 , M250-1, and the current M250-2 are limited in production to 100 individually-numbered and customizable timepieces. The collection has evolved with utility, versatility and elegance while remaining true to its core identity - a series of tool-watches made for space travelers and professionals alike.
