Towson Watch Company Martin M-130 Chronograph
Chesapeake Collection:MARTIN M-130
A pilot chronograph inspired by the famous Martin M-130, also called the China Clipper, built at the Glenn L. Martin Corporation in Maryland. It was a plane that shrunk the world, skipping across the Pacific like a rock across a pond in an astonishingly fast sixty hours. The timepiece’s boldly colored dial was designed to replicate the aircraft’s distinctive cockpit instruments of the 1930’s. A contemporary treatment of traditional design applied to both the timepiece’s identity as a pilot’s watch and its palette. A plush engraving of the famous China Clipper adorns the case back. This timepiece is powered by a base 7750 movement that has been modified in-house for seasonal COSC-grade accuracy. Production is limited to 100 pieces.
