395.00

Designed and assembled in the USA, the limited edition ‘Americana’ Eastern Standard timepiece features the famous Montgomery dial with distinct hour figures, upright minute divisions and larger numerals in red for the 5-minute intervals. Preferred by the trainmen working on the American railroads in the early 1900s, this dial configuration offered a precise reading of time to the nearest minute. The classic 43mm round stainless steel case compliments a period correct genuine enamel dial. The vintage look is augmented by an independent seconds counter and a 24-hour indicator with blued Breguet style hands.

Available in Navy or Antique White Dials and an assortment of our American Horween leather straps, handmade in the United States of America.
