HA.357 Exhibition Caseback

We have created another heirloom-quality piece promoting and preserving the centuries old traditions of hunters and shooting sportsmen. This piece, unlike anything we have ever crafted, is the epitome of the Art of Time.

In 1934, Smith & Wesson developed the .357 Magnum, designed by Colonel D. B. Wesson along with considerable technical assistance from Phillip B. Sharpe, a member of the Technical Division Staff of the National Rifle Association. It is this original S & W cylinder and the Sharpe bullet headstamp that are showcased on the dial of our Highline Aviator mechanical timepiece.

Crafted of Grade 2 Titanium and heat blued by hand, this distinctive timepiece is a collaborative effort of design, master engraving, brass overlay and metal sculpting.  It has been personally assembled in Livingston, Montana by noted American horologist Jeffrey P. Nashan.  The exhibition caseback frames the Swiss ETA 6498 manual movement and is beautifully engraved with the key phrase of 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution.  The piece has a 14k solid gold winding crown and is finished with a carbon fiber strap and stainless steel buckle.  This Special Edition HA.357 is water resistant to 90 feet and carries a lifetime warranty*.

One very lucky individual now owns this piece of American made craftsmanship by the Montana Watch Company and will help to celebrate our 2nd Amendment Rights.
