UP IN THE  AIR

The lofty inspirations of the P-1 Pilot

From its earliest beginnings, with the Wright Brothers in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in 1903, powered flight never depended purely on aeronautics. The moment point-to-point flights became viable, navigational instruments became an integral part of flight equipment.

Navigation meant timekeeping, for to-the-second precision, in order to make the necessary calculations for each leg of a flight. As the operating range of aeroplanes grew, navigation relied on maps, mathematics and accurate timing rather than looking for landmarks on the ground. Timepieces, whether mounted on the instrument panel or on the pilot’s wrist, became vital, life-preserving devices, tools to ensure pinpoint accuracy whether you were bound for a target or heading home.

The domed sapphire crystal blends smoothly with the sloping matt ceramic bezel and the reverse pie-pan dial, creating a bold and contemporary feel. The black, one piece dial with oversized markings is hand-filled with Super-LumiNova for optimal visibility. 

SPECIFICATIONS

A closer look at the P–1 Pilot

We knew that in creating a clean, clear and uncomplicated design, a one piece dial was the perfect choice. This had its challenges – most watch brands have a separate tapered ring that fits onto the dial, but this would have affected the clean profile of our original design concept. A matt velvet-like black finish, and an extra fine luminous compound recessed into the dial and filled by hand, yields a greater Super-LumiNova performance than usual printing methods would allow.

HOURS. MINUTES. SECONDS

Tell time with clarity 

We’ve chosen simple matte white hands to provide a sharp contrast to the matte black velvet dial, and added a luminous tip on the second hand for a subtle accent of colour. For a look that’s contemporary, functional, and doesn’t compromise on style - or legibility. 

SUPER-LUMINOVA

See clearly in the dark

We insist on only the best in quality and efficiency. That’s why our dials are hand-filled with Swiss-made Super-LumiNova. It maximises emission for colour, vibrance and a superior glow that will help you see in even the darkest of settings. 

SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

Never miss a moment

Our crafted sapphire crystal is domed to reduce distortion and give you a clear view of the dial from every angle. We’ve finished it with an anti-reflective coating that reduces glare and is scratch resistant, to make sure it lives up to all of life’s adventures. 

SWISS MOVEMENT

Feel the difference

Each watch is powered by Sellita SW200-1, the Swiss-made workhorse of the industry. The 38-hour power reserve movement has a 4Hz frequency for a smooth, sweeping seconds hand, and 26 friction-reducing jewels for maximum efficiency.
