We love classic aviator watches, and the Gruen Airflight is no exception. Once you see how they work you're hooked. Gruen designed the Airflight as a jump hour watch with a couple of major differences... rather than one hour jumping in a window, every twelve hours all of the markers change in an instant so the watch always displays military time. These watches were used by civilian pilots as well as by the Air Force Association. Today's offering showcases this classic Airflight which has its mint original dial and distinctive original hands. Our watchmaker has just freshly serviced the original caliber 510 RSS movement which is very nice. For the finishing touch we have installed a new Teju lizard strap. We also have a new-old-stock Gruen brown alligator grain band that can be purchased for it. Or If you would like to dress it down we can order a NATO style strap for it. Don't miss the chance to own a very cool piece of aviation and timekeeping history.
