DAVOSA Black Military Vintage Automatic

The new version of the DAVOSA Military Automatic – the Military Vintage is reminiscent of pilot watches from bygone decades and boasts a correspondingly vintage look. Its most striking characteristic is the black dial with clear bold Arabic figures and hour markers which are coated with Vintage-Superluminova. The luminous material imitates the Radium coated figures and hands of the past in terms of colour – and without any side-effects.

The smooth oil-treated leather strap has been naturally aged in a complex process and features a distinctive hand applied contrast stitching. Every strap is unique and will develop its own patina while wearing. As with all models of the Military series the customer gets an additional black nylon strap for free. The DAVOSA Military Vintage is available for 678 Euros.

As with the first military models, DAVOSA selected a stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm for the Military Vintage, which can be termed a classic choice. The watch’s striking appearance is generated primarily via the scratch-proof, domed and non-reflecting sapphire crystal, the large, grip crown and, last but not least, the dial, which recalls a cockpit instrument. The hands, outsize hour markers and date display in “triple date” format are all particularly reminiscent of aircraft altimeters.

The watch is powered automatically via the tried-and-tested Swiss quality movement ETA 2824-2, and features water resistance up to 200 metres thanks to a screwed steel base and double-sealed crown. Generous luminous digits and markers Vintage-Superluminova guarantee excellent readability, making the DAVOSA suitable for all operations, whether by night, below or above water.
