The AVIATOR Douglas Day Date features intense sunray finishing, an elegantly curved window indicating the day and a trapezoid-shaped calendar window. Since visibility and readability are key attributes, the Douglas Day Date collection unites Art Deco design and function–from polished metal indexes to decorative, subtle accents on the hands that are inspired from the cockpit, this watch is undeniably timeless in sophistication.
The case is comprised of three symmetrical parts: bezel, body case, back case. Hand-finished with fine watchmaking techniques, its rounded curves are inspired by the graceful sophistication of the Douglas aircraft’s fuselage. Its stunning, mirror-polished surfaces are streamlined by ergonomically sleek lines. And its curved lugs exemplify an elegance from yesteryears, while ensuring a proper fit perfect on any wrist. Like all AVIATOR cases, it requires more than 40 operations to keep up with rigorous itineraries.
Crafted from the most premium materials, every AVIATOR strap is individually developed to share the spirit of the collection. The luxurious, alligator-style leather strap of this timepiece has undergone an extensive tanning process to enhance suppleness and pairs an elegant contrast stitching for added sophistication. It features an easy locking system of the deployment buckle that fastens the strap with one click. To adjust, simply move the buckle forward or backward on the strap.
At the heart of this timepiece is one of the most well-known, Swiss-made mechanical movements: an Sellita SW240-2 movement. Highly elegant in design with functionality at its core, the movement also focuses on weekday indication for an elevated and convenient experience in checking your calendar. The Incabloc Novodiac superbly offers protection from shocks and bumps. Meanwhile, the caliber beats at 28,800 bph and it is powered by an Etachron regulator to maintain precision, both on and off the ground.
Incorporating the Douglas DC-3 cockpit rudder instrument in its design, the case back emulates the functionality that calculates rudder angles and controls the position of the nose and back of the aircraft. This feature is covered in crystal to protect against scratches and shocks, in addition to providing a comfortable fit on the wrist. Acute details reflecting aviation heritage and fine watchmaking techniques such as these details are inherent in every AVIATOR Douglas watch.
