Presented in 2015, the 1820 OLD GLORY by Swiss watch brand 88 RUE DU RHONE is a contemporary chronograph that pays homage to the United States of America.
Capturing the essence of the United States of America, the 1820 OLD GLORY epitomizes the characters of its people: bold, optimistic and free. The 1820 OLD GLORY offers the brand a perfect mix between classicism and contemporary design, fusing the colours of the American flag – red, white & blue, where the name of this timepiece was born and where the inspiration for the design comes.
The silver dial and case are offset with a striking red seconds hand with an 8-shaped counterweight. The 1820 OLD GLORY is finished with a blue Nato strap, using the same fabric as war medals use, with contrasting red stitching and stainless steel ardillon buckle. It has a water resistance of 5ATM.
