McDowell Time Time is a watch company that is based in Rockville, Maryland, and is an ever-growing watch company looking to expand. Many timepieces in today’s industry are inspired by something that is well loved by the creators, but not every watch incorporates aspects of their passions into their timepieces. That’s where McDowell Time is different. Their watch, the Sonoma, is a dedication to their passion for speed-driven racecars and everything that they entail, from the screeching of the tires to the roar of the engines. With the Sonoma, McDowell Time aims to capture that passion for speed and racing inside of a timepiece that embodies that speed.

The Sonoma watch has a name derived from two sources. The first of these sources comes from the Sonoma Raceway, a drag strip located in California. It is also the name of the location where the owner proposed to his wife; the name inspires a racing in his heart, and this watch combines two things that he loves dearly and captures them inside a perpetual timepiece.

The Sonoma watch is a reliable and beautiful timepiece that comes in a choice of a 316L stainless steel that has been brushed or given a black finish for its 39-millimeter casing. Overtop of the contrasting sub-dials with C3 Super-LumiNova numbers is a domed sapphire crystal that is at once scratch resistant and glare resistant to provide an easy to read dial. Inside, the Sonoma features a Seiko VK63 meca-quartz movement that is dependable and precise and has a water resistance of 10 ATM. Quick release pins hold onto the carbon fiber leather straps that are comfortable, stylish and snug.
