The first commercially-available Towson Watch Collection timepiece. Materializing the spirit of the two certified space chronometers that served as faithful companions to astronauts aboard the Endeavour aircraft in 2000. Available in silver or black with a high-polish 40mm stainless steel case, accompanied by a leather strap. Exclusively sold in high-end retailers with a limited production of 250 timepieces. Circa 2007.
A standard triple- chronograph display of engine-turned sub-dials and a stamped textured center, featuring painted roman numerals and indices. Marked with the TWC initial logo. The triple-chronograph includes a minute counter at 12 o’clock, sweep-second at 9 o’clock and hour-counter at 6 o’clock. Surrounded by a tachymeter. The minute, hour and chronograph hands operate from the center with a push-pull crown and start/stop pushers aside it. The high-polish case is water resistant to 50 meters, shock absorbent, and capable of being worn in space. An exhibition case-back reveals the Swiss Caliber 7750 movement that is decorated, assembled, and calibrated in-house.
The predecessor to the modern line of Mission M250 Chronographs. First released in 2010 to offer Hartwig Balke’s space-watch to collectors of American Horology around the world. An exact reproduction of the former chronometers worn by the astronauts aboard the Endeavour Spacecraft in 2000. Powered by the same movement that helped prove an automatic-watch functions in outer space - a COSC-certified 7750 Swiss Caliber regulated in-house by Towson watchmakers. Available in silver and black TWC-stamped dials, both limited to 100 timepieces.
