Detroit Watch Company B-24 Liberator

The motor city isn’t just for petrol engines anymore. The Detroit Watch Company, founded in 2013, is the only Detroit-based watch manufacturer that hand -assembles classic timepieces with Swiss automatic movements. Their pieces range in both design and prestige with each model serving as an heirloom timepiece for years to come. Now, they pay homage to the history of the city with a piece honoring the Detroit-built B-24 World War II bombers.

The B-24 Liberator served every branch of the American armed forces during these trying times. It was even spotted serving several other Allied air forces and navies and was used in both European and Pacific theaters. The production contributed a great deal to Detroit’s economy, and homage can be paid in either a 44mm chronograph model or a more simplified 39mm version. The chronograph features a water-resistant steel case, Swiss automatic chronograph movement, 48 power reserve, sapphire crystal, and a calfskin leather band. The casebook is engraved with a top view silhouette of a B-24 bomber and the series number in the limited edition release. The 44mm Chronograph sells at about $1,900 while the 39mm version sells for 1,100. Orders are being taken now for deliveries later this spring. [H/T: Maxim]
