One look and it’s clear, this timepiece will have you travel back to the early times of aviation. By utilizing the early cockpit clock design, striking numerals, and round indexes, the AVIATOR Bristol Scout has a look that’s not only unique, but highly legible, as well. The small, second counter positioned at 9 o’clock helps pilots ensure that the watch is working accurately while the seconds run continuously. Its vintage styling is elegantly finished off with the altimeter style date window at 3 o’clock.
Distinctive in its presence, the large pocket-style casing of the AVIATOR Bristol Scout Limited Edition echoes its vintage past with striking dignity. Its large case and big dial opening is reminiscent of the styling of the first pocket watch, featuring lugs that were later welded on to accomodate a strap. Borrowing from this original design nuance, the atypical lugs that are welded upon the case require no spring bars and seamlessly attach to the genuine leather AVIATOR strap. This model’s uniquely remarkable look is also finished off with an oversized crown with a deep-lined pattern that provides the perfect grip even in the thickest of pilot’s gloves.
Back in the days when the Bristol Scout aircraft took to the skies, early wristwatches offered unique features not found in watches today. Designed with premium quality and extremely durable buffalo leather, the unique patterns add to its exceptional look. The lugs are yet another unique design element, which are attached with buttons just like earlier watches of that era. By using only the finest materials that pass multiple rigorous tests, this AVIATOR model reinforces superior quality along with comfort in wearability.
At the heart of this timepiece is one of the most well-known, Swiss-made mechanical movements. The Sellita SW290 Movement is considered a highly reliable workhorse with a small second counter complication. This movement is crafted with a fusion of advanced technologies and Artisanal expertise. Not to mention, the Incabloc system superbly offers protection from shocks and bumps. Meanwhile, the calibre beats at 28,800 bph and is fitted with 31 jewels to protect this timepiece from friction and rugged wear.
Every AVIATOR watch tells a story rooted in its own aviation-inspired design. Turn the AVIATOR Bristol Scout around and you'll see that the engraving and spiral lines on the case back are a tribute to this fine aircraft and its achievements. The vintage-styled font used for the inscriptions and the combination of a sandblasted and a polished finished give the case back a sophisticated look and unique feel. As for performance, the case back further ensures that this watch doesn’t just own an original look, but it is also water resistant for up to 100 meters.
