From the beginning, Hindenberg has made it very clear, where its passion lies: in everything associating with aviation and in the look of iconic pilot’s watches throughout the centuries. Now the watch manufacturer has launched a new model and it’s completely Swiss made. The Hindenberg Air Lancer is for everyone who appreciates the combination of a classic look with good quality and aviation in general.
This watch is not bulky but prominent on the wrist with a diameter of 42 mm and a height of 11 mm. The case is round and made from stainless steel with nicely shaped lugs and is water-resistant up to 10 atm.
The look of the dial is dominated by two different sets of cutouts. The two in the middle allow a glimpse of the movement which lies behind. The two cut-outs at 3 and 9 o’clock provide the date function, supported by a blue indicator.
The Air Lancer features indexes as well as big Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The legibility of this watch is pretty good, thanks to the big hands. They are filled with lume to provide a great legibility even under critical lighting conditions.
Inside this watch works an automatic calibre. The Sellita SW200-1 is a Swiss made movement which is known to be a reliable, precise and highly dependable workhorse. It features hours, minutes, seconds and a date display. Furthermore, it comes with a power reserve of 38 hours.
The handsome look of this wristwatch is completed by a leather strap which comes with contrasting stitches in white.
Hindenberg has currently four different versions of the Air Lancer available; three feature a stainless steel case, one comes with a black PVD coating. The latter also features a partly black dial and a black strap. The partly black dial is also available in combination with a stainless steel case. A white/silver dial and a partly brown one complete the collection. The Air Lancer with the brown dial features a strap of the same colour.
