Flying Dutchman II black

Slide 1

Design

The Flying Dutchman in its purest form. Design, technics and useability are keywords for this watch. As in all watches meant for professional use it has a black dial with white hands.The dial is very readable and has a calm lustre, despite of or induced by the rather busy line play. The Breguet hands are hand painted with white superluminova, which makes them lumious in the dark.

Movement

The engine of this watch is the Swiss ETA 6498-1 movement. This movement is known for being sturdy and basic. The execution is highly elaborate as can be seen though the sapphire rear crystal. End regulation is done by Pellikaan timing.
