Abingdon Watches, Flight Watches for Women
There are more and more female pilots these days, but not many pilot watches are designed for women. Chelsea "Juice" Welch, a Santa Monica-based pilot has changed that with her new company Abingdon watches. Abingdon sells two designs, the Amelia, named for Amelia Earhart; and the Jackie, named for Jackie Cochran. The Jackie, shown above, is the girlier watch. It has a mother-of-pearl face and 64 cubic zirconia stones on the bezel. The dial has a E6-B flight computer on the dial and a chronograph that allows Zulu time to be dialed in along with local time. The Jackie sells for $400 and the more basic Amelia is $250.
