The golden age of aviation is in the very DNA of the Douglas Day-Date MECA-41 watch. At first glance, the star-shaped central plate is a reminder of its radial engine. Its multi-layered face, protected by sapphire crystal, is a bird’s eye view into the mechanics, while SuperLuminova coated numerals guide your visibility. The rotating calendar discs, steel patterned base, and carefully calculated central screws serve as the ultimate statement in mechanical complexity of the dial’s construction. Let the intricate rotations of days and hours carve out your days securely with a piece of aviation innovation at your side.
The three symmetrical parts of the case: bezel, body case, back case, are hand-finished with fine watchmaking techniques. Rounded curves are inspired by the aerodynamics of the Douglas aircraft’s fuselage, while the mirror-polished surfaces are streamlined by ergonomically sleek lines and a seamless transition from the case bezel to the inner ring. Then there are the curved lugs—exemplary of elegance from yesteryears, and ensuring a proper fit perfect on any wrist.
t is the movement of the Douglas Day-Date MECA-41 watch that determines precision down to the moment. It is like the engine that propels time forward, acting as a powerhouse and working together with a series of interconnected parts. Every cog, coil, and gear in sync as it collaboratively powers the Swiss-made AV-1000 calibre based on the renowned Sellita SW-240 mechanical movement. Crafted with a fusion of advanced technology and polished aesthetics, the AV-1000 calibre is one superb measurement of precision.
Sophisticated styling helps navigate robust calendars. Intertwined with the dial, the calendar discs are seamlessly elegant in color and accented with Art Deco-styled numerals.
Every AVIATOR watch tells the story rooted in its own aviation-inspired design. Turn the AVIATOR Douglas Day Date MECA-41 around and you will see the tribute to sophisticated mechanics and aviation geometry. The case back features big opening protected with anti-reflective sapphire crystal to reveal the beauty of the mechanism, especially its balance wheel and artisanal oversized rotor. With its riveted elements, deeply engraved texture and carved out windows reminiscent to the aircraft fuselage, the rotor pays homage to the early aviation and art-deco era.
