Nav B-Uhr 42 Handwind Bronze Blue Antique
Pilot watches enjoy wide popularity in large part because of the simple, uncluttered dial and the large hands, which ensure maximum readability. Almost all of today's pilot watches are based on the design of the so-called Observer watches which were part of the equipment of every navigation officer serving in a German Air Force crew during World War II.
The STEINHART Nav.B-Uhr 42 Handaufzug Bronze blue antique is our more elegant interpretation of this classic design. More elegant as the case is made from finely brushed bronze, which will develop an individual patina over time making each watch unique. More elegant also because of the blue antique dial , above which the white hands almost seem to be floating. Through the stainless steel exhibition case back one can view the heart of the Nav.B-Uhr 42 Handaufzug Bronze blue antique the ETA( Unitas) 6498.1 Soigné with its 18 Geneva stripes and blued screws and golden wheels in all its glory.
While the technology and material of the STEINHART Nav.B-Uhr 42 Handaufzug Bronze blue antique are completely of today, the design of the dial and hands which are generously treated with luminescent paint and protected by a domed and double-AR-coated sapphire crystal and of the watch crown references history in an authentic way.
This elegant execution is a must-have for every pilot watch fan.

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...
