DIY Watchmaking Kit | Flight 01 (F01) Vintage Pilot Watch Details:

A military pilot watch inspired by traditional timekeepers back in the World War era (Mark XI Pilot Watch created specifically for the British Royal Airforce). This is a modern interpretation of the traditional pilot watch. The watch dial has clear and legible numerals and lumed markers. The faux-vintage lume tells the story of tool watch tradition and a white second hand enables aviators to tell time at a glance.

At the size of 40mm, this is a no-nonsense tool watch powered by the tried and true Miyota 8 series movement. An optional 8315 upgrade will give you 60 hours of power reserve, a beautifully decorated movement, and hack-second (stop-second) functionality. The 10 ATM W.R. will keep your watch safe through most, if not all of your outdoor endeavors.

  • Complete components of one 40mm Flight series mechanical watch
