Designed with intense sunray finishing coupled with a recessed ring and fine concentric circles, its sophisticated Art Deco style is undeniably timeless. Since visibility and readability are key attributes, the Douglas collection unites design and function–from luminescent indicators on every hour along to a clean minimalistic design.
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. Featuring a Sellita SW200 movement, it is considered a highly reliable workhorse with precision at its core. This movement is crafted with a fusion of advanced technologies and Artisanal expertise. 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.
