RECRUIT vs CADET

The CR250 Field Series was designed for officers in the military as well as everyday professionals alike. Providing chronometer-grade accuracy for the hour, minute, sweep-second and date. Clear and readable in all light conditions with luminous hour markers, lume-filled hands, and high-contrast Arabic numerals. The interior 24-hour scale on the Recruit’s olive green handcrafted dial has an engine-turned finish with the outer 12-hour scale featuring a blasted matte-finish. The pantones made for the Cadet draw from the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Fleet. Suited for midshipmen and recruits in the field, encased in German stainless steel with a removable bezel for easy cleaning & servicing. The exhibition display reveals the decorated Swiss movement assembled in-house. Equipped with a hand-stitched leather strap and signed Towson Watch Company buckle. Reference number CR250 is engraved on the back with a unique serial number between No.001 - No.250.

Olive Green or Navy Blue Dial featuring luminous hour markers and hands with Arabic numerals and date-window at 3 o’clock. All functions of the movement were deliberately kept on the dial to conform with its utilitarian intentions. Contrasting inhouse pantones were used for the hands and hour indicators.
