A-11, THE WATCH THAT
WON THE WAR

Praesidus merges a passion for the military tradition, its greatest stories, and high-quality timepieces.

D-Day Paratrooper

Tom Rice

At age 22, Tom Rice left Coronado, California, to volunteer and defend his country as part of the 101st Airborne Division. On the night of June 16th, 1944, as they jumped into Normandy, he tore his arm up to his wrist and lost his brand new A-11 watch.

Together with our ambassador, we resurrected Tom's A-11 watch and are proud to present the 101st Airborne Limited Edition Collection to celebrate exceptional sacrifice, bravery, and resilience.
