Between 1939 and 1945 Aviator flourished as a brand due to the incredible amounts of pressure from the military and the need for soldiers and aviators to own timepieces on the battlefield or in the skies. Aviator produced timepieces to provide to the masses. Today we see a new edition to Aviator watches with the Airacobra P45 Chronograph a homage to the Airacobra fighter plane. Resembling the early chronographs of the time, this timepiece was made for the cockpit of fighter plane and to this today retains the original look of the traditional watch.
This piece of timekeeping artistry is equipped with a fully functioning push button chronograph that is used as a stopwatch, controlled by the buttons either side of the crown, the black sub dials measure hours, minutes and 1/10 of a second. In addition, this timepiece is equipped with a tachymeter and telemeter for measuring speed and distance and at the four o’clock position is a date window. Collectively these functionalities create a watch capable of taking on a busy and frantic lifestyle, whilst looking suave and sophisticated.
All of these functions are sat on a beautiful dark grey dial with silver hands, set with superluminova, a non-radioactive substance that illuminates in the dark. A complete Swiss quartz movement is the heart of this piece and is encased in a 45mm stainless steel case.
Flowing exquisitely with the case is a quality black crocodile print clasp finished with a pin and buckle clasp.
