What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
Sometimes, there are watches that you yearn to add to your collection, but are incredibly hard to find. The limited availability could be due to the timepiece being cost prohibitive, a limited production of pieces leaving very few to obtain, or a combination of limited pieces, with not many, if any, hitting the resale market. That was the pain I previously endured with my Saturday selection, the Towson Watch Company, Potomac Pilot.
I was on the hunt for a Towson Watch timepiece, ever since seeing a few examples of their fine watchmaking at a local jewelry fair a couple years ago. Being a small, boutique microbrand, that deals exclusively in hand-built designs with Swiss Movements, there has always been an air of exclusivity with the brand. Not to mention, being a Maryland-based brand, I was desirous of obtaining one, to complete my Maryland Watchmakers sub-collection. After a couple years of searching, luck finally met opportunity. And following a couple of months of dogged negotiations with the seller, we finally had an agreement, and sealed the deal!
The Potomac is incredible, with workmanship and fit-and-finish to rival any luxury brand I've owned. The Swiss Unitas movement, with Swan-neck regulator, offers finer adjustment, and better accuracy of the movement, which gives you an idea of the type of build quality that went into this timepiece. And you already know, given my 48-hour, mandatory break-in rule, my WOTD for Sunday is already set in stone!
Pairing the Potomac - Pilot, with a beaded bracelet, designed by Dorsal Bracelet Company, in color SoHo to compliant the the tones and hues present in the dial and strap. There hasn't been this much excitement about the Potomac, since George Washington sailed down it!
