On your person or sitting nestled on its custom wooden stand, the Real McCoy will always be the timekeeper and muse you can count on. Limited to 350 pieces.

The Great American Series:

Elijah McCoy

Discover the Elijah McCoy Pocket Watch, a limited-edition masterpiece honoring the Black American inventor whose innovations define perfection. Inspired by classic locomotives, which McCoy revolutionized, this timepiece features a matte black finish, gold accents, and vibrant red flourishes. The manual-wind SW210-1 movement, visible through the exhibition case back, showcases the artistry of timekeeping. Limited to 350 pieces, each watch comes with a custom wooden stand, Certificate of Authenticity, and a booklet exploring McCoy's legacy.

MOVEMENT

MANUAL WIND SW210-1 

The hand-wound Swiss-made SW210-1 accurately keeps the hours, minutes, and seconds. Black Geneva striping, polished stainless steel rivets and vibrant blue screws are carefully considered details that nod to the shared history between timekeeping and locomotives.

The pocket watch should be manually wound habitually to restore the minimum power reserve of 42 hours. To preserve time keeping accuracy, keep it away from magnetic fields and shield it from strong impact that could permanently disrupt the movement.

CASE

Sandblasted PVD Black

Rated at 5ATM, this squared and beautifully textured matte black case features a matte khaki pumpkin crown and domed sapphire crystal. A full exhibition case back reveals the complexity of the manual-wind movement inside and features the individual serial number and ‘The Real McCoy’ inscribed on the back.

DIAL

Matte Black

The matte black dial features numbers with four layers of Old Radium Lum and a shiny Alabaster outline, and flourishes of red along the gold minute tracks. Brushed gold hour and minute hands with Old Radium lum and a striking red seconds hand bring the dial to life with vibrancy. 

STRAP

Matte Black Chain

The thoughtfully crafted matte PVD black chain features a swivel clip at one end and a hook at the for securely keeping the timepiece in your pocket, even as you check the time—or just admire it.

PACKAGING

Tells The Time, And A Story

The Real McCoy pocket watch arrives in bespoke packaging with a custom wooden stand, Certificate of Authenticity, and story booklet that dives deep into Elijah McCoy’s life and legacy.
