WWI Ace conquers time travel.
In 1917, Dieudonne Costes fought head-to-head against lead-spitting enemy planes over the Balkans. 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 to complete the world's first non-stop flight across the South Atlantic.
Inspired by his record breaking feat and the world's earliest aviator timepieces, Stauer is proud to introduce the Midnight Flyboy 1916 Watch. The first multi-function wristwatches forever changed air combat, allowing pilots to time complicated maneuvers and coordinate attacks. The Midnight Flyboy features a spectacular face, set inside a case fused in rose gold. Three tachymeters and a movable bezel to measure speed and ascent and the chronograph function allows you to measure elapsed time and stop on a dime. Interior complications mark elapsed minutes and hours as well as display a 24-hour clock. The watch is water-resistant to 10 ATM, features a crocodile-embossed black leather band and fits wrists 6-3/4" to 8-1/4". And when it came to pricing this historic masterpiece, we decided to aim high and break some records of our own!
