PRIDE II

The Pride is a unique and storied timepiece – named for the Pride of Baltimore II, a schooner that serves as the sailing ambassador of Baltimore to the rest of the country and world. Our watchmakers collaborated with an engineer who worked on the Pride ship to produce this one-of-a-kind design. It took our watchmakers years to engineer the thin triangular case. Its lines are derived from the outline of the Towson Watch Company shield, while sharing the same dimensions as the Pride of Baltimore schooner. A crown in the shape of a winch serves as a nod to its maritime heritage while an intricate engraving of the timepiece's inspiration is etched into the stainless steel back.

As the final decade of the 18th century brawned, Maryland led a still nascent America in shipbuilding. The heart of the industry was in Baltimore where a class of vessels known as “Baltimore Clippers” were built to meet the need for fast ships capable of eluding the brawny but lumbering British naval vessels which were devastating American shipping on the Chesapeake Bay. Conditions were ripe for the war of 1812, a conflict in which Baltimore Clippers were to play a seminal and unforgettable role. That notoriety and proud heritage is carried on today in Baltimore by a reproduction Baltimore Clipper known as the Pride of Baltimore II. The successor to the original Pride of Baltimore, launched in 1977, Pride II is a living monument to the fears of the Baltimore Clipper fleet and a powerful sight for all who see her. Their power as a symbol stems from the very iconic American profile that the Pride II presents today

While that appearance has never quite been equaled on the water, there is a timepiece on the wrist that is almost as distinctive, the Pride II. Fittingly, the special edition is made in Towson, right near the shipyard where the Pride II of Baltimore was built. The piece pays tribute to the Pride of Baltimore II and the infamous Baltimore Clippers she recalls.
