As one of the world’s first Black American inventors, Elijah McCoy’s journey of triumph lives on in our language as synonymous with perfection: ‘The Real McCoy,’ a colloquialism popularized by demand for his superior locomotive oiler. This year, we honor McCoy’s prolific legacy of craftsmanship with the latest in our Great Americans Series, the manual-wind Elijah McCoy Pocket Watch.


Inspired by the classic locomotives McCoy invented for, this unique pocket watch comes to life with a matte black finish, gold accents, and spirited red flourishes. A full exhibition case back reveals the complex inner workings of the manual wind movement inside.


On your person or sitting nestled on its custom wooden stand, the Real McCoy will always be the timekeeper and muse you can count on. Limited to 350 pieces.
