Design Overview


The Maxton is a race-inspired design that draws its name from the Maxton Mile in North Carolina, a land speed track that resided on an abandoned army airbase. The mile long timing track allowed racers to push their cars to the limit and achieve the quickest time over that distance. This need for measurable speed inspired us to create the Maxton chronograph. When using the tacheymeter function of the bezel, you need to know a standard measure of distance. Hence, we felt that Maxton, being exaclty one mile long, was the perfect namesake for our watch.
