Towson Watch & Little Treasure Jewelers Launch of New Watch

The Pride II – A Limited Edition of 100 Pieces

The Pride II salutes the Pride of Baltimore II, a full-scale reproduction of an 1812-era topsail schooner, the type of vessel called Baltimore Clippers, that helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom. The Pride of Baltimore II represents the State of Maryland throughout the world as a goodwill ambassador.

The Towson Watch Company was founded in 2000 by two gentlemen whose passion is working with mechanical timepieces, Hartwig Balke and George Thomas. Together they have created a series of Chesapeake-themed timepieces, represented most currently by the Pride II.
