In 2006, The Abingdon Co. began during a roundtable dinner conversation between a mix of energetic women pilots and mechanics. Pilot and company founder, Abingdon Mullin listened as her colleagues repeatedly expressed their desires for a fully functional aviator’s watch. A watch that is fashionable, versatile and, most importantly, made for women.
In that moment, Abingdon decided to form the first company dedicated to developing top quality, realistically priced watches. Watches that meet the needs of female pilots, mechanics, and adventurous women all over the world.
That kickoff conversation wasn’t just the moment the Abingdon Watch was actualized – it was the birth of our company ethos. We regularly meet with women in industry with active lifestyles. Through conversations, we leverage their expertise and knowledge to create innovative products that meet their professional and personal needs. As an unintended result – Abingdon Watches themselves have become a symbol of empowerment.
