801-A "Aircraft" Models

Inspired by the technical layout and colors of the Hamilton and Elgin model 37500 aircraft clock from WWII, the 801-A brings a look and color contrast that is unique, yet visually appealing. The layout is technical, but still easy to read at a glance, with a pilot watch look that is unmatched. 

Behind the dial is our American 801 movement.  Like many things that we do at RGM, the 801 is inspired by America's great watchmaking past.  The bridges are reminiscent of the Keystone Howard Watch Company's "Edward Howard" model, their flagship watch and one of the high grade watches of its time.  The unique winding click is inspired by the Illinois Watch Company's "Illini" model and the deep polished winding wheels are finished like those of the Illinois "Bunn Special".  Like the great Railroad watches from America's past, the 801 has a high grade finish that denotes the quality of its construction.
