The Escadrille 43 started with a dream, a passion for style, and a commitment to exacting quality. From the dawn of flight, pilots relied on precision wrist watches for navigation and in flight calculations. Aviators utilized wrist watches as a tool and depended on their watches legibility, durability, and endurance.
The design began with a pencil to paper sketch. With each iteration the vision became clearer. We focused on incorporating sleek edges and polishing combined with a fine brushed finish on the stainless steel case. The watch is driven by a highly finished Swiss Sellita SW290-1 bidirectional automatic movement. The Escadrille’s simple yet elegant matte black dial contrasts with oil blue hands and numerals filled with SuperLuminova. Finished with a handmade riveted leather strap and a cognac Hadley Rille Flight Pouch.
The design is contemporary yet the Escadrille 43 heritage stretches back generations. The aviator spirit in the design is timeless. The result is a classic Swiss Made aviator watch with enduring sophistication ready for any adventure in the cockpit or around the globe.
