In World War I, Dieudonne Costes fought head-to-head against lead-spitting enemy planes over the Balkans. In WWI dogfights, victory was decided in a fraction of a second. The first multi-function wristwatches forever changed air combat, allowing pilots to time complicated manoeuvres and coordinate attacks. Ten years later, the crack French pilot faced a different kind of challenge: navigating the pitch-black skies over the South Atlantic.
Behind the stick of his aircraft, he soared across the time zones from Senegal to Brazil, setting the record for the world’s first non-stop flight across the South Atlantic. The Stauer Midnight Eclipse Flyboy™ 1916 features a stunning textured, metallic copper-coloured dial offset by cream and black bezel-set inside a case finished in gleaming stainless steel.
Three tachymeters and a movable bezel measure speed and ascent and the chronograph functions allow you to measure elapsed time. Interior complications mark minutes and hours and include a 24-hour display. The watch is water-resistant to 10 ATM and features a crocodile-embossed, genuine leather band and solid stainless steel construction. Every decent Ace should have one up his sleeve.
