Aviator have always been inspired by the wonderful world of aviation. The Douglas family is no different. The Douglas DC-3 is a propeller-driven airliner that revolutionised air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Aviator created a watch inspired by the Douglas so that its legacy could live on.
This is an incredibly charming timepiece themed around the original aircraft from the 1940’s. The horizontal line in the centre of the dial is a perfect replica of an authentic cockpit instrument used within the Douglas. This serves as a reminder of all the long-haul flights the airliner did during its time of service.
A handsome white dial is definitely a focal point of this watch, giving timeless elegance and luxury for years to come. Gold PVD plated steel hands adorn the dial and are tipped with superluminova. They are designed and shaped to mimic the blades on the propellers that the Douglas is historically known for. A day and date window are at position 12 and 6 on the dial, as these were key instruments for aviation in the 1930’s and 40’s.
Sapphire crystal glass is the perfect accompaniment known for its scratch-resistant properties and finished with an anti-reflective coting, a staple in the Swiss watch industry.
Crafted from a high grade stainless-steel with yellow gold PVD finish, the 45mm case adds a fantastic contrast to the white colour dial and is a perfect match to the gold indexes and hands which surrounds a fully swiss automatic movement.
Pairing marvellously with a brown crocodile grain strap with cream stitching, this combination provides maximum comfort on your wrist, all secured by a gold PVD pin buckle.
Official Aviator gift box packaging comes with every watch along with a two-year international guarantee.
