The Abingdon Co. is proudly sponsoring the oldest, annual, all-female cross country air race in the United States and is the official watch of the Air Race Classic (ARC). The ARC is launching its ten-stop race from June 16th - 19th, 2014, starting from Concord, CA and ending in New Cumberland, PA.

The sponsor is providing Championship Aviatrix winners with two Elise timepieces in Egyptian Gold and two Athenian Silver for the Reserve Aviatrix Champions.

The Abingdon Co. offers top quality, specialized watches to meet the needs of female transcontinental pilots and adventurous women that navigate all over the world. Abingdon Welch emphasized, “For the second year now, I am excited to promote the partnership between the Air Race Classic and The Abingdon Co. A natural fit, the Air Race Classic promotes women in flight through the Air Race and The Abingdon Co. which was built by those same women. This year, we are donating seven aviator watches: four will go to the Champions and Reserve Champions and three will be sold at the Silent Auction in order to raise money for the Air Race. I look forward to many years of successful collaboration and best of luck to the race pilots.”

“The Abingdon Company products contain currency converters, metric and standard conversions and multiple time zones in a line of high-quality aviation,” said Marolyn Wilson, ARC President. “For our racers who are traveling across multiple time zones and numerous states, these watches offer a great value and competitive edge for our racers. I am a proud owner of an Amelia watch which I wear everyday. I love it.”
