Product Details

The limited edition WASP homage watch is a tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots from WWII. Every aspect of this watch intentionally honors these courageous women aviators.

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 numbers on the dial is the same blue of their military uniforms. The 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. Each watch 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 for each 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.

Love the WASP watch!

This is my Third! Elise watch so obviously I love the 3 time zone format. I absolutely love the history of the WASP watch. I wear all three watches but the WASP means a little more. God Bless you for honoring the WASP women!

Great watch

The history and thought put into this watch is amazing. Cindy loved it from the first second she took it out of the box.

Watch seems nice, customer engagement leaves a lot to be desired

I haven't given the watches to my girls yet but they look nice. My main problem was the complete and total lack of communication between purchase and shipping. I was told to expect 4-6 weeks for shipping. I called at 7 weeks (after not hearing anything) and was told my order will ship in the next 7-10 days. 3 weeks later (again after getting zero calls or emails) I called again and was told my order was next to be shipped. The watches seem nice, but before I can recommend anyone else spending that kind of money, I'd want some significant changes with expectation management and communication after the sale.

Pretty & practical

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.

Thank you

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.
