About Pellikaan Timing
Pellikaan timing is started by Hubert Pellikaan. Hubert Pellikaan is originally trained as a pharmacist. He is the inventor of over 10 patents in the field of pharmacy and mechanical engineering. Next to being active in the pharmaceutical field he is also horlogical enthousiast and has always been looking for unique watches and movements. At the time his favourites were the Omega speedmaster (1969 with caliber 321) and the Omega 1945 "RAF W.W.W." pilotswatch (W.W.W. stood for "waterproof Wrist Watch!). Both of them very functional watches with a great design, but the design was a result of functionality. Early in 2008 Hubert Pellikaan wanted to develop his own watch since he missed something in the new watches of Omega, Panerai, Rolex etc. This was a plain design with high readability, established and sturdy technique and usability of the watch. In the Flying Dutchman he combined these values and so the first watch was born. This watch was actually intended for himself only, however by positive reactions of others he made the watch more often. This was how Pellikaan timing was born in 2009.
