DESCRIPTION

THE CLASSIC PILOT WATCH

The S2 watch conveys the simplicity of the classic avionic dials found in the Spitfire cockpit. Housed in a precision billet machined smooth polished case and matching ZW DSL lugs, is a distinct black dial reminiscent of a Smiths 8 day clock with period numerals and indexes, clearly defined avionics style hands, and red sweep seconds hand. The classic dial is framed by a simple black bezel ring and the hands and dial are highlighted with SuperLuminova X1 luminous pigment. The rear of the S2 watch has a technical plan view of a Mark IXc Spitfire.

The watch is powered by the stellar Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement thus ensuring it never misses a beat. Hand and date adjustment is by a brass finished locking screw crown modelled on the joystick gun platform fire button, a feature once so familiar to those brave young RAF pilots during the Battle of Britain. The watch is fitted with a ZW handmade vintage leather strap with contrasting stitching and an engraved black PVD buckle.
