The Panzera Flieger 47 watch pays tribute to the legendary pilot watches made in Germany.
The term “Flieger” means “Flyer” or Pilot in German. In the late 1930’s the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Imperial Air Ministry) wanted a standard aviation watch for its pilots to use in navigation and timing during flights. It came up with its own design that was simple, functional, and most of all easy to read in all types of conditions. The distinguishing feature of an original 1930’s Flieger was the large size, black face with white detailed indexing and crisp Arabic numerals.
The most unique highlights of the design however were the triangle and two dots at 12’oclock position for easy orientation at night, as well as an enlarged serrated diamond shape crown to enable adjusting and winding even when wearing flying gloves.
There have been many modern incantations of the original Flieger design which has never gone out of style as a classic timepiece ever since its inception more than 70 years ago.
The Panzera Flieger 47 remains a true homage to the original German pilot’s design while adding a number of more modern features desirable for civilian use. These include a display back, power reserve display, and water resistance.
Each Flieger 47 watch has a unique laser engraved serial number, highest levels of antireflective glass; 50M water resistance, exceptional accuracy through superior calibration testing, and a beautiful soft touch leatherette case. The limited edition Flieger 47 models are packaged in a handmade wooden outer crate that adds to the 1930’s vintage experience. Prices start from $399.
