DESCRIPTION

FIRST FLIGHT

The S1 watch conveys the simplicity of the classic avionic dials found in the Spitfire cockpit. Housed in a precision billet machined matt black PVD case and matching ZW DSL lugs is a distinct black dial with period numerals and indexes, clearly defined avionics style hands, and a standout red tipped sweep seconds hand. The classic dial is framed by a simple brushed steel bezel ring and the hands and dial are highlighted with SuperLuminova X1 luminous pigment. The rear of the S1 watch has an inset engraved silver disc with technical plan view of a Spitfire encased with the graphic markings of a P8 compass.

The watch is powered by the stellar Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement thus ensuring it never misses a beat. Hand and date adjustment are 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.
