July/August 2014 Watch & Clock Bulletin

The front cover illustrates a recent donation to our National Watch and Clock Museum—a Towson Watch Co. Pride II donated by George Thomas and Hartwig Balke, founders and partners of Towson Watch Co., Baltimore, MD.
Our Pride II is an automatic wristwatch, Model PR250-S, serial no. 036, named after the Baltimore clipper Pride of Baltimore II. It is made of a 21-jewel Swiss ETA automatic movement, caliber 2892A2, Anachron hairspring, Glucydur balance, 28,800 beat train, and Incablock shock absorber system.
The Pride II has a stainless steel case with the shield-shaped logo of the Towson Watch Co. and an anti-reflex sapphire crystal on the front. The stainless steel back is specially made from material with low nickel content to prevent skin allergies. The back is engraved with an image of the Pride of Baltimore II. Its silvered metal dial is embossed with rhodium-plated Arabic numerals, skeletonized hour and minute hands, center seconds, and date window at 6 o’clock. The crown is in the shape of a ship’s winch, demonstrating its maritime heritage. It is on display in our Museum’s wristwatch collection.
