With a shape that demands your attention and a winch for a crown, Towson’s Pride II is definitely not your typical timepiece. Inspired by the re-constructed Pride Of Baltimore topsail schooner, the Pride II recalls the unique history of the speedy “Baltimore Clipper” topsail schooners from the early 1800s.
An engraved profile of the Pride Of Baltimore II on the back exhibits the sleek lines and massive sail area that helped the Baltimore Schooners outrun anything on the bay during their heyday. As with all Towson watches, the Pride II is impeccably built in Maryland with full attention to details. Inside is a high-grade ETA 2892-A2 adjusted to five positions. Even with the unusually difficult to manufacture case shape the Pride II is still rated to 50 meters water resistance and reasonably priced at $3,850. www.twcwatches.com
