Classic A-7 Corsair II Watch

his is the 42mm Classic watch: A7 Edition. Constructed in our 316L surgical-grade stainless steel watch case with scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass with inner anti-reflective coating. Featuring a front-view of the A7 plane in white, with your choice of pilot wings or SwissPL brandname.

The 22mm metal bracelet is comprised of solid links, and uses screws (not pins), which is secured to the watch with solid end-pieces; and the bracelet buckle is equipped with a safety clasp. You can choose to upgrade your watch to the pvd-black case version.

The crown, located at the 3-position, is a screw-in style (not push in), meaning you tighten the crown onto the case threading which seals the watch and enables a water depth rating of 300 meters, which is 1,000 feet. The caseback is also screwed-down (not pop on), so that the insides of the watch are secured from the elements.

The movement driving your timepiece is a Swiss engine; power your watch with your choice of Quartz-analog battery movement, included in base price, or upgrade to the Automatic self-winding mechanical movement with 25 jewels.

The 316L steel material is ideally resistant to environmental corrosion and provides an optimum hypoallergenic function for contact with your skin. So regardless if you have a desk job, are engaged in covert spec-ops missions, or you’re just an avid sportsman, your timepiece will survive whatever you throw at it.

The dial fabrication is done in-house, using a traditional manual Swiss printing machine, producing one color at a time, to create the design. Your A6 Edition watch is handcrafted and made-to-order; production time is about 6 weeks.

The watch uses a uni-directional bezel turning system with 4 bezel colors to choose from: black, blue, red and green. We have gold, silver and orange upon special request.

Select from the options: upgrade to the pvd-black case, upgrade to the metal bracelet, upgrade to the automatic movement, choose your wings and your bezel color.

Your military career spans a lifetime of dedication and sacrifice, inherited from the men that came before, and passed on to those that follow. A proud tradition built on commitment and triumph, on honor and support. This timepiece is the perfect blend of style and function to encapsulate your heritage, and the milestones you achieved along the way.

That's a dive watch. What the fuck is going on here??
I guess if you crash and burn you become a water balloon and need a dive watch. You know the swiss, always thinking ahead.

Or as call it...………… giving the aircraft back to the taxpayer.

Funny thing, I had read that if you flew an A7 or F/A18 and it crashed you became a lawn dart. I had thought that was the nickname for the F-16. I have never heard it used in the context of crashing an aircraft before.

Those are navy planes.

And at $850 for the quartz model, no thanks. Add $345 for the upgrade to automatic.
Could be worse, it could have been an Invicta "Lawn Dart".

Egad, what a shitty watch.

An additional $345 to upgrade to an automatic.

Hope these POS shillsters rot in hell.
