USBA and HORAGE Timepieces Team Up
by US Biathlon
We are incredibly excited to have partnered with US Biathlon to create a limited edition watch that honors both the 2022 Winter Team athletes and the program as a whole.
Everyone with US Biathlon, from directors, donors, family members and the athletes, have a resilience and community spirit that align with Horage. Over the years, we have garnered a close connection to the team and their shared stories of overcoming obstacles that seem greater than oneself strongly resonate with our own. We’re honored and excited to introduce a watch that represents and supports this team.
The US Biathlon relies heavily on donors and sponsor support for training and to ultimately get the team to the games. They have razor thin budgets and to help them on their way we have created a limited edition watch that honors the 2022 US Biathlon Olympians and the program. 50% of profit from this limited edition will be donated directly to the team.
The Horage US Biathlon 2022 Winter Team watch is based on our Multiply timepiece with power reserve however finished with a special US Biathlon dial and case back sapphire crystal engraving. This is a three-hand piece with a power reserve indicator at 6 o'clock, which has been designed to represent a rifle scope and the physical power necessary to be competitive in the race. Biathlon combines cross country skiing with precision rifle marksmanship, which are both incredibly difficult disciplines to master especially with heart rates reaching upwards of 180bpm on race day.
Applied indices are filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova®, as are the hour, minute and second hands, and above each applique is a closed target marker. The US Biathlon logo sits at 12 o’clock on the white dial and HORAGE is printed at 3 o’clock. The bottom half of the dial features a unique linear effect representative of a freshly groomed race course.
The 41mm case is made from 316L stainless steel and comes fitted with a special two-link steel bracelet with deployant clasp. In addition, each watch will ship with two complimentary NATO straps. Five-layer anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial, while the sapphire exhibition case back has special engraving options.
Supporters can select either a Biathlon athlete’s autograph or the US Biathlon 2022 Winter Team engraved on the case back.
