Something You Don't Need But Desperately Want - The HGRP-02

In the interest of full transparency, I got to check this new pocket watch out a few weeks back when I was in Hagerstown. 

This is one of two (that's 2) new pocket watches now on offer from Hager Watches. This one forever now known as the HGRP-02.

The case measures 42 mm in diameter and is of black DLC treated stainless steel.

And best of all, when it is ready for service, the friendly and reliable team at Maryland Watch Works will be ready to take care of it for you!

Hager refers to this as one of two attainable hand-wound Tourbillon pocket watches. And I think that really sums up the ethos of Hager Watches. Something you really want, that is attainable. And this tourbillon from Hager is something I definitely want - and at $2,800 even a humble social worker like me can hope to afford it.

Here is a bit more description from Hager -

The second tourbillion pocket watch HGRP-02, is set inside a more traditional round DLC case, with sapphire glass featuring a stamped guilloché hobnail / grain dial with stunning depth and character, applied brushed silver plaques for the hour, minute, second indexes.  It comes in dark blue with Super-LumiNova® hands. The exhibition caseback offers a superb view of the movement framed by a blue guilloché ring with the Hager logo and a Maryland cross bottony on the crown wheel.  Case size is 42mm X 42mm, water resistant to 3ATM. Currently limited to 10 pieces.

This item is currently "off the menu" so if it's in your wheelhouse like it is in mine, reach out to Hager directly reserve yours before they're all gone.

Stay tuned - more Hager Watch goodness is coming your way!
