THE PROJECT

Veterans day is about remembering those that have served to keep us safe. Praesidus Watch Co. has always worked closely with veterans and will continue to do so through its watches & special projects. Today we’re proud to annouce the A-2 Origin, a watch designed in collaboration with Korean War Veterans.

As part of those celebrations, we’ve decided to create an special Veterans Day Offer that we hope will contribute in enabling people to share the memory of all those that have served. To that effect, we’re doing a Buy One - Get One offer on our A-2 Origin so that the memories and sacrifices of veterans are not forgotten & shared.

The A-2 Origin:
Inspired by the heroes of the Korean War

VETERANS DAY OFFER

The A-2 Origin - Specs Zoom In

A TRUE 50S
AMERICAN FIELD WATCH

Our A-2 Origin came about when we met with USAF pilot Bud Anderson and he started talking about the watch he remembered using throughout the Korean War. We consulted with him on the design and produced the A-2 Origin. Leaning on the A-17 Mil Spec (the successor to the WW2 A-11 Spec) we’ve revamped the hands & cleaned the dial to the legibility that was required back then. With patina color indexes, the A-2 origin looks and feels like 1950s field watch.

BUILT FOR THE MODERN FIELD

With its 1950s looks, the A-2 could be mistaken for a watch straight out of that era but we’ve provided a raft of 21st century upgrades to increase its longevity & ruggedness. We’ve used 316L Stainless Steel for the case & a Sapphire-coated K1 Crystal to ensure both scratch and shatter resistance all over. Furthermore, we’ve equipped our A-2 Origin with an ultra precise Swiss-made Ronda 763 Quartz movement for better timekeeping & increased readiness.

AMERICAN ASSEMBLY

The A-2 Origin is hand-assembled & water-tested in the United States as part of our ongoing efforts to bring back American watch-making knowledge. The 5 ATM water resistance announced on our A-2 Origin is specifically tested in at our US assembly plant to make sure that each & every A-2 Origin delivers as promised.
