The instrument set was inspired by the analog gauges used on aircraft in the twentieth century. Think Top Gun.
In broad daylight, the white on black dial, big Arabic numerals, baton-style hour hand, broad sword minute hand, and a massive and elegantly white-coated seconds hand all stand out.
It’s not strictly a flight deck instrument, but it does have that useful information, and because of its small aperture and monotone black date disk, it’s visible when you need it and fades away and disappears when you don’t.
It combines legibility with the stance of a 42mm x 42mm case on the wrist, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. It’s only 10.6mm thick, so it’s on the slimmer side and will slip under any sleeve nicely.
This is one of the better lumes out there. Charges quickly in natural sunlight and will stay well-lit well into a transatlantic flight.
The stainless steel case is coated with a Carbon PVD coating which not only gives it the black finished color it also makes the watch more durable to corrosion and scratches.
The bezel and crystal appear to be scratch-free.
Watch is in excellent condition and is running smoothly. It has recently been authenticated by eBay, which will be included. In addition, there is an appraisal letter from Meierotto Midwest Jewelers citing the replacement value of this watch at $3900.
