POTOMAC

A classically-designed manual wristwatch that puts the feel of a pocket-watch on the wrist. Embracing a design language shared by pioneers of railroad transportation that once walked the grounds of our local Chesapeake region. The exhibition caseback illuminates a historic and reliable movement caliber originally found in American pocket watches during the railroad boom. The decoration applied recaptures the once-glorified tradition of American craftsmanship. The dial extends this patriotic theme with a railroad pocket-watch aesthetic. From its exterior to interior, the Potomac shines light on an era defined by the American success story.

The TWC Headquarters in Baltimore, MD overlooks the iconic B&O Warehouse, home of the original backbone for modern-day railroads. Our watchmakers drew from this timeless landmark to create the PO250, an instrument  that commemorates the Chesapeake’s role in shaping American industry forever. The proprietary Unitas movement found within the 42mm polished steel case pays tribute to early innovations in American watchmaking, as an earlier version of this same movement was a breakthrough work of horological technology in the USA a century ago. The dial extends this patriotic theme with its railroad-era aesthetic. The PO250 paints a horological picture of this story, in which pocket watches evolved into wristwatches due to this railroad boom that all started right in our backyard. Like the B&O warehouse, the Potomac’s large presence serves as a constant reminder of our history and everlasting need for tradition.
