Introducing the limited edition WASP homage watch, a tribute to the courageous women aviators of the Women Airforce Service Pilots from WWII.
It features the official WASP wings insignia on the face, and the words "Honoring the WASP - Women Airforce Service Pilots 1942-1944" engraved on the back. The blue GMT on the dial is the same blue of their military uniforms. Hour markings are designed to resemble the rivets of the airplanes they flew.
The WASP watch comes in a collector’s box with an authentic penny from the years 1942-1944, a nod to the tradition that the WASP had of tossing a penny into the wishing well and making a wish at their training grounds at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas. The first 200 watches will have a steel 1943 penny as nearly all circulating pennies at that time were struck in zinc–coated steel because copper and nickel were needed for the Allied war effort. The number "38" on the dial is in memory of the 38 WASP who died in service.
With only a limited number of 1102 pieces produced in honor of the 1102 WASP that completed the program, it's a must-have for collectors and anyone who admires the bravery and determination of these trailblazing women. Get yours today and be a part of history.

I had read about it in the AOPA magazine and wanted one since it pays tribute to the WASP. My husband must have read my mind because he completely surprised me with this watch as an anniversary present!
The watch is sturdy enough to endure my daily wear-and-tear, yet it's elegant and refined-looking. My wrists are very fine, but the watch doesn't feel too heavy, and it fits well. The second time zone, date, and glow-in-the-dark features are useful.
I can't imagine a more perfect watch since I work at an aviation history museum. I especially appreciated the '38' since Hazel Yee Ling, the final WASP to die in service, earned her pilot's license in Oregon. The photo shows our modest WASP display at our small museum and the matching wings. Few visitors are familiar with their history, and I love sharing their accomplishments.
I want to thank Abingdon for making a watch in tribute to the WASP pilots of World War II, including my grandmother. I spend a lot of time doing presentations about this part of history. My grandmother and her fellow pilots wanted people to remember the service they performed. This watch helps tell their story and bring a different audience from the watch enthusiast world. I get compliments followed by inquiries on the meaning of the watch when I’m wearing it, so it helps me share this history with people I meet. It has interesting features like silver wings on the face and a designated 38 to honor the ones who died. Thank you Abingdon for this lovely tribute to my grandma and her trailblazing pilot friends. I think she would have loved it and been very honored.
It's a really beautiful watch. I wear it with just about every day.
Thank you, I am very happy with it.
I was looking for a watch with a meaningful story and also, very important, not too big. I wanted it to be elegant. I had it all very clear in my mind and when I saw the WASP and its story, I honestly didn’t think about it twice. It’s everything I wanted and more. It’s so badass, too.
I'm over the moon with the beauty and inspiration that is the WASP Legacy watch. It's feminine, functional, and classic. The details and thought that Abingdon put into the design and out of this world. The case also comes with a 1943 penny which I threw into the wishing well at Avenger Field, Sweetwater, TX. I know that the spirit of the WASP will be with me as I start training in the warbird trainers flown by the WASP during WWII. The watch is worth every penny AND some of the proceeds go to support the National WASP WWII Museum at Avenger Field to ensure that the story will be told to inspire the future for generations to come!
