G.Gerlach PZL P.11c

This exceptional timepiece, also a 100% non-commercial project was inspired from the legendary PZL P.11c fighter plane made in Poland. It was the standard fighter plane of the Polish Air Force during the 1939 September campaign.

The movement used in this watch was the Sea Gull ST25 automatic movement. Sea Gull is the largest automatic movement manufacturer in the world and the fourth largest watch manufacturer in the world. The ST25 is a renowned and great movement used by many manufacturers. It is a 39 jewel movement with a very efficient automatic winding system and a power reserve exceeding 45 hours. The dial depicts the silhouette of the PZL P,11c aeroplane.

The stainless steel case is equipped with a screw-in back, showing the styled engine cover, applied over the Polish Air Force checkerboard and an engraved, unique serial number. The crown features a rubber gasket, which ensures a water resistance of 5 atmospheres and an engraving of the old PZL factory logo. The strap was made to complement the design of the watch and the buckle is shaped like the P.11c’s wing – the characteristic gull wing, first applied to a landplane – the P.11c by Kazimierz Pulawski, a Polish designer.
