Capturing the essence of the USA, the 1820 OLD GLORY epitomizes the character of its people: bold, optimistic and free. Independent thinkers unafraid of speaking out, adventurers willing to break the ground and inspirational entrepreneurs who create the unexpected. The 1820 OLD GLORY offers a perfect blend of classic and contemporary design, fusing the colours of the American flag – red, white & blue - from which the name of this timepiece was born. Although the date is uncertain, Old Glory was made and presented to young Captain Diver by his mother back in the 1820s and remains possibly the most highly recognized country flag ever created.
Featuring a 45mm stainless steel case, the 1820 OLD GLORY timepiece is a statement piece that exudes confidence and drive. It is powered by a Swiss-made quartz chronograph movement. The case houses a silver dial with the USA flag motif and blue Arabic numerals. For the first time ever, 88 RUE DU RHONE uses a diamond stud at 8 o’clock to represent prosperity. This timepiece offers the following functions: small seconds counter at 6 o’clock, 10 hours at 3 o’clock and 30 minutes at 9 o’clock, a tachymeter ring and a double-date window at 6 o’clock. The silver dial and case are enhanced by 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 for war medals, with contrasting red stitching and stainless steel ardillon buckle.
