Sangamon Watch Company recently received emails along with a photo from a Florida customer, the lovely communications really encourages our team to worker harder and smarter to introduce more history themed series and collections. We appreciate the feedback and love to share it with you, read below:
Hope this email finds you well. Just a quick note to share my fantastic Sangamon experience with you. I was looking for a special-and unique-watch for my husband. He is a commercial airline pilot, but I did not want your typical pilot watch. I was looking for something manly and rugged but also meaningful. Turns out your Route 66 watch was exactly what I was looking for in a pilot watch. Let me explain:
Mother Road dial may have been shaped like a car wheel hub, but what I saw was a plane propeller. The bracelet brown leather strap designed to look rally-style with 3 holes and an oversized buckle reminded me of rivets on airplane wings. To me, the bronze color evoked the vintage flair of sepia brown; the one inspired by the earth-colored tones of aviator suits from the early part of the 1900s. But most importantly, Mother Road is a high quality watch with luxury standard components that are made to last. My husband loves it!
After successfully launching this collection, I encourage you to ponder the idea of creating a “Spirit of Aviation” collection. I would imagine the models named after aviation legends: Orville, Wilbur, Lindbergh (who was an air mail pilot serving the St.Louis-Chicago route), and of course, Amelia.
In my opinion, it would be a great fit to your Spirit Series. A representation of independence, determination and a confident attitude….I’d be happy to test drive it 🙂 Thanks for creating such an unique watch!
Thanks for your email. I find your research process interesting and fascinating. All your hard work shows. Sangamon Watches and Mother Road success is the final result of hard work ,learning, studying and most of all love of what you are doing.
Congratulations on the release of your new series!. It’s inspiring to know that you have chosen to spotlight the character of the heroes among us (9/11, healthcare workers), and pioneers (Clara and the Wright brothers), during these uncertain times. A certain reminder of strength and hope. I am eagerly awaiting for the release of your new collections! I will definitely keep in touch with Sangamon Watches on social media and through your mailing list. Wishing you continued success! I’ll be your witness in this journey.
