According to Abingdon officials, 50 pieces have been made and are individually serial numbered on the case back. The watch is priced at $399.
The custom timepiece made its debut at the NGPA’s annual Winter Warm-up event in Palm Springs, California, Feb. 7, 2020.
“We are excited to partner with The Abingdon Co. to launch an exclusive NGPA 30th anniversary watch to debut at our flagship event in Palm Springs,” said NGPA President David Pettet. “This creative design and affordable cost make this watch a unique and functional heirloom and a great way to benefit NGPA as 100% of the sale of each watch will benefit member programs and advocacy.”
The three time zone aviation watch is designed as a unisex style that can be worn on the right or left wrist due to the placement of the inner bezel crown at the center of the 40mm stainless steel case.
The letters “N, G, P, A” replace the first four numbers on a dark blue dial, and a 20mm leather strap is attached via The Abingdon Co.’s EZ Release pins.
Each watch also features a specialty custom case back and buckle with the NGPA logo.
Features include a sapphire crystal, C5 SuperLuminova coating for night visibility, and 100 Meter (330 ft.) water resistance. The watch comes in a white wooden box with the NGPA 30 Year Anniversary logo on the top and is wrapped around a blue felt pillow.
