Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph


reference 3778

Colourwise, the double chronograph has the classic instrument look and the date display is reminiscent of an altimeter. The third push-button at “10 o’clock” can be used to stop the split-seconds hand at any time; pushing it again synchronizes it with the chronograph seconds hand, making it ideal for timing laps or intermediate times.


  • Mechanical chronograph movement
  • Split-seconds hand
  • Soft-iron inner case
  • Date and day display
  • Diameter 46 mm

The Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph features the classic cockpit-style design with a variety of coloured highlights. The dial takes inspiration from the cockpit instrumentation of the legendary Ju 52 from the 1930s. The displays are generously sized and clearly arranged. The brilliant white hands and indices on the matte-black background have a luminescent coating and guarantee optimum legibility by day or night. Apart from this, the altimeter-like date display underscores the instrument look. Three signal-red elements provide optical highlights: the small red permanent seconds hand that shows the watch is running; the red tip of the chronograph seconds hand; and the small triangle for the triple date display. A particularly conspicuous feature on the double chronograph is the third push-button at “10 o’clock”. This can be used to stop the split-seconds hand at any time and to synchronize it again with the chronograph seconds hand, making it ideal for timing laps or intermediate times. With its soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields and a sapphire glass secured against drops in pressure, the watch has all the credentials of a watch designed for flying. The Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph is available with a black alligator leather strap and folding clasp.
