The TWC Shield Logo shares the same shape as the bow on the Pride II Skipjack schooner that now serves as Maryland’s sailing ambassador to the rest of the world. The five-radii triangle was translated into a one-of-a-kind case design to evolve Towson’s Skipjack Collection. A crown in the shape of a winch serves as a nod to the instrument's maritime heritage. The steel case-back features a limited-edition etching of the Pride II schooner. Exclusively available for purchase below or at select retailers.
Powered by the automatic Swiss ETA 2892-A2 movement with 21 jewels, its performance is elevated through careful adjustment in five positions. With a power reserve of 46 hours and an accuracy of +/- 12 seconds daily, it ensures reliable timekeeping.
The watch's case, crafted from stainless steel, features a high-polish bezel and midsection, exuding elegance and durability. Its unique triangular dimensions of 9x44mm, with a height of 10mm and a 20mm lug width, make it a distinctive and comfortable fit. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, with an anti-reflective coating, protects the watch's face and allows for clear visibility.
The winch-shaped, push-pull crown adds a maritime touch, and the watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters, ensuring its versatility in various environments. The Pride II's case is a proprietary in-house design, showcasing Towson Watch Company's commitment to distinctive craftsmanship.
Handcrafted in Baltimore, MD, the Pride II watch boasts a silver-toned dial with a grainy and flat texture, exuding sophistication. Applied Arabic numerals in rhodium-plated finish, along with rhodium-plated skeleton cathedral-style hands, enhance readability and add an artistic flair.
