Halda Watch Race Pilot

Swedish luxury watch brand Halda unveils Race Pilot, one of the most advanced racing watches ever made. The Halda Race Pilot is based on the unique Halda concept which consists of two interchangeable time modules that can be docked into a time platform at the owner’s preference.

Each module is developed for optimum performance in its respective environment. The Race Module was developed in close cooperation with race drivers and is equipped with sophisticated technology that really makes a difference in professional racing. The watch is programmed with high-tech functions such as the Race Pilot software, a set of advanced Racing Chronograph and Countdown algorithms referring to FIA Formula 1 regulations.

The Mechanical Module stands for the link to the past, celebrating Halda’s history and passion for mechanical movements. It has a design inspired by the racing community and is equipped with one of the best engines one can find: a calibre produced by one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers– Zenith. The self-winding movement features a power reserve indicator and has been beautifully decorated with Côtes de Genève and Clous de Paris. For those moments aside the race track, the mechanical module completes the Halda Race Pilot perfectly, without any compromisein design, function or quality.

The Halda Race Pilot is the latest manifestation of a unique concept developed by the renowned watch manufacturer Halda Watch Co. Previously, the company launched the Halda Space Discovery, which was created in cooperation with astronauts and tested in space on NASA’s STS-128 space mission.

RACING MODULE
To meet the extreme demands incurred on and around the race track, the Race Module is equipped with sophisticated technology and advanced functions that really make a difference in professional racing. The watch has been developed in close cooperation with professional race drivers and technicians and put to extreme tests on the race tracks.

A lot of effort has been put down to create the easy to use interface of the Race module and it has been programmed with useful functions such as Countdown referring to FIA Formula 1 regulations and the Race Pilot program which gives you information of the most popular tracks in the world. The module also has an advanced racing chronograph showing lap times and even average speed, which registers the fastest lap with an accuracy down to 1/100 of a second. Based on feedback from the tests, the Halda team has fine-tuned the Race Module to perfection, which illustrates the non-compromising quality of Halda Watch Co.
