Watch brand collaboration: 47Ronin x Jackie, The Abingdon Co. Pilot Watches for Ladies
Jackie in Dreamy White
47Ronin has just received an aviation watch from The Abingdon Co., a company dedicated to designing and manufacturing aviation watches solely catered for the female crowd with the functionality that usually only male aviation watches possess. Pilot and company founder Chelsea “Abingdon” Welch founded the company due to her colleagues’ desire for an aviation watch that is fashionable, versatile, and exclusively made for women.
The Abingdon Co. aviation watches are all top-quality accessories that feature genuine leather, Surgical-Grade stainless steel, Japanese movements, and Swiss Manufacturing. The watch comes in 20mm lug. 47Ronin has started designing and crafting straps for the watch we received. Let’s take a closer, more detailed look at the watch.

The Jackie comes with many functions while keeping to The Abingdon Co.’s design philosophy of being fashionable for women. Functions include a stopwatch and the E6B Flight Calculator, which has the ability to divide, multiply, convert currency or between imperial and metric systems. All the different bezels may look intimidating and overwhelming at first, but The Abingdon Co. provides simple to understand video manuals on their website.
47Ronin's design for Jackie, The Abingdon Co.
Coming to our design inspiration for the Jackie, we have adopted our signature design in our approach for Jackie, which is a combination of leather and Japanese print fabric.
Glossy black full grain calf leather
First of all, we have selected a glossy black full grain calf leather for the strap. The leather is relatively thin that we believe will elegantly fit on the wrist of a lady.
Red, pink, golden flowery Japanese print fabric
Next, we have a flowery Japanese print fabric inlay in red, pink, and gold. The flowers appear to be the popular cherry blossom (Sakura), which only bloom around the second week of April in Spring. During this period, the Sakura turns the streets and parks in Japan into a sea of pink and white. The flowers only last for 2 weeks before they will all fall to the ground.
Hand-stitched with matching red thread
A matching red thread is stitched on by hand, using 3mm diamond-shaped pricking iron tool from Japan.
A golden stainless steel buckle
Finally, a golden stainless steel buckle (20mm) is attached, which matches the gold on the Japanese print fabric. While the Jackie has a beautiful silver stainless steel case and a sparkling white dial, a turn of the wrist will reveal another set of colours in red, pink, and gold.
This collaboration has given 47Ronin the opportunity to design and craft straps for a lady's watch, which is not what we usually do. We are excited about the challenge to design our straps with the lady users in mind while keeping true to our design philosophy and using authentic and exotic Japanese materials. We hope you are as excited as us about the possibilities that can result from this collaboration!
