VENTUS Caspian Series: C-04

by Chronos



A reinterpretation of the classic WW2 pilot’s watch.

The pilot watch (or Observation watch) was developed by the RLM (Reichs-Luftfahrtministerium, or Reich’s Ministry of Air Transport) in WW2 for use by navigators in conjunction with charts and other tools. One distinct feature of the watch was the triangle marker at 12 o’clock flanked by two dots. It gave a quick indication of the upward orientation of the dial during night flight. The triangle also functioned as a solar compass to find the earth’s true north when used with sextants, compass and data charts.

While keeping the design of the dial clean and true to the original pilot’s watch, a sandwich effect was created for the Caspian. This involves the use of 2 dial layers to create a slight layered effect which could be appreciated up close.
