We Struck Black Gold

We at Jack Mason are passionate about creating thoughtfully designed watches. From the intricate mechanical gauges of race cars, planes and ships, to classic vintage style timepieces, each watch we create draws inspiration from iconic masterpieces. As an extension of our current watch collections, we are launching a series of limited edition watches to honor iconic events and figures in history that inspire each of us. Introducing the Jack Mason Limited Edition Series, each including 100 numbered and thoughtfully designed timepieces.  

Texas Icons Series

The first series in our limited edition collection, Texas Icons, is intended to honor our roots by celebrating the events and figures in Texas history that are iconic in their industry. With each watch in this series, we conducted in-depth research to find the most relevant people, places, and things for both our brand and our fans. Original, influential, transformative, and memorable are words that we think best describe what it means to be iconic. We want to pay homage to these Texas Icons who have made an impact by not only designing a watch but also sharing their story and supporting their current charitable efforts. 

Introducing: Spindletop Limited Edition Timepiece

For the rest of the world, the 20th century began on January 1, 1901. For Texas, it began when the Lucas Gusher blew at Spindletop, on January 10. The Spindletop Limited Edition Timepiece was created to celebrate the legacy of the iconic reserve that paved the way for the modern petroleum industry and changed our home state of Texas forever. 

The first watch in our Texas Icons Series was created in collaboration with the Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum. 

"We are excited that Jack Mason is bringing Spindletop back to life in their release of the new Spindletop themed timepiece. It's a beautiful representation of the historical event that changed life and the economy in the U.S. forever, and we hope that it will be as popular as the first Lucas Gusher in 1901," said Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum Director, Troy Gray. 

Each element of the watch's design was inspired by the term Black Gold. It has a black case body and bracelet, and gold-plated markers and hands. The bezel, crown, and movement are also plated in gold, while the dial has a black texture to represent the oil-covered land in Beaumont when the gusher blew. 

"Similar to many of our other automatic timepieces, the case back is exposed showcasing the gold-plated Miyota 820A movement, the edition number, and the date of the Spindletop oil boom," said Peter Cho, Jack Mason's Creative Director. 

Each matte black and metallic gold box set includes an interchangeable leather strap, a hand-numbered edition card, and a contemporary 1900s style newspaper pamphlet that tells the story of the 1901 oil boom. 

Don't miss out on your chance to own one of these limited edition timepieces. It is limited to 100 editions.
