Town & Country Chronograph TD01

Earlier this year I blogged the first one of my watches from the Town & Country brand, and here is the second.

The Town & Country Surf Designs brand are better known for their surfboards, as well as their 1980s shirt designs. They were started in the 70s in Hawaii by Craig Sugihara.

The watches are quite common online and come in a variety of styles (but possibly all dial watches). They may have been produced by Orient, but I haven't managed to prove that definitively yet.

This model is one of their Chronograph designs, also with an alarm function. It is a 3 hand dial, with 3 smaller dials on the face, and a date window at the 3 o'clock position. The top two small dials are for the chronograph, while the bottom small dial shows the alarm setting. The face and back has the brand name written on it, and in the centre of the back is the Town & Country logo of a yin and yang symbol (taijitu). The case is fully stainless steel with a rotating bezel, screw back and 10 bar water resistance. The watch is a TD01 model with a full model number of TD01-C0.
