Flieger Chrono automatic
How can the minimalistic pilot watch design be realized for the sake of a complication as featured by a chronograph without ruining clarity?
Jörg Schauer accepted this challenge and made the decision to absolutely do without anything that relates in any way to time display and measurement. Therefore, the small second dial had to disappear from the major dial plus there was no room for the date display either.
As for chronographs, the permanent second dial really only indicates whether or not the watch is running; otherwise it often interferes with visual appearance or needs to be integrated in the design with some minor flaws. Only very few watchmakers manage to include the dial of the permanent second nicely or to even highlight its position on the major dial. When designing the pilot chrono, Schauer realized that the integration of the small second dial would only lead to compromises concerning clarity of the typography, and therefore he dropped the idea altogether. Of course, the chrono is equipped with the blued steel hands featured by all STOWA pilot watches.
The luminous hour, minute and numeral markers make reading easier, especially in the dark. The hand-matted stainless steel case has a glass caseback exhibiting the automatic Valjoux 7753 chronograph movement. As it is common in all STOWA watches, premium sapphire crystal protects the dial and the caseback. The diameter of the watch is 41 mm and it is available with different leather straps.
Furthermore you can create the rotor of your Chronograph according to your wishes.
