In the Spring of 2015, MATWATCHES designed the brand’s first Naval Aviation timepiece. Introduced in 2018, this new model boasts a vintage look. Protected by a robust 316L surgical steel case of 42.5 mm, its dark blue dial (sun-ray finishing) with its oversized index and Arabic figures in super luminova (BGW9:blue glow white) features pilots’ wings at 6 o’clock.
This new UTC is equipped with a unidirectional turning bezel in blue aluminium, with guilted figures indicating the second time zone for perfect legibility.
