From the very first models in the very first collection, watch manufacturer Hindenberg made one thing very clear – that its heart beats for aviation and iconic pilot’s watches. Today, we are going to introduce one of the Swiss made models in the current collection, the Hindenberg Air Lancer. This watch combines a beautiful classic look with impeccable Swiss quality.
The dial boasts two bold and different types of cutouts. Through the
middle one parts of the movements can be seen while the two lateral ones
operate as an unconvential date display. The date indication can be
found at three o’clock via a small blue arrow. At nine o’clock we meet
the cutout of the date disc once again – a beautiful detail that would
otherwise stay hidden beneath the dial.
Overall, the compact indices predominate, but at three, six and nine o’clock, Hindenberg has opted for Arabic numerals. The logo appears at twelve o’clock. Due to the generously sized hands, the Hindenberg Air Lancer offers excellent readability. The minute and hour hands are also filled with lume to guarantee this excellent legibility throughout the night.
The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
The Hindenberg Air Lancer features a 42-mm-stainless steel case, measuring 11 mm in height. The watch sits prominently on the wrist without being overpowering and it slips under every sleeve with ease.
The case is water resistant up to 10 atm.
This watch is powered by a reliable, automatic movement. The Sellita SW200-1 is a swiss made calibre, known in the industry for its absolute reliability and precision. This movement features hours, minutes and a central second hand, as well as a date display. Fully wound, it provides a power reserve of up to 38 hours.
Hindenberg provides the Air Lancer with a beautiful leather strap, white contrast stitching including which beautifully complements the look of the dial.
The Air Lancer comes in four different versions; a stainless steel model with a silver coloured dial, two with a black dial – one of which also features a black PVD-coated case – and one brown model.
