Maratac Pilot Automatic

Maratac has released its take on the Pilot watch of the 1940s. According to Maratac, the watch was a local (US?) contract and I suspect these are the overruns. The watch dial is sterile and the Maratac brand can only be found on the case back. From my readings, Maratac stands for Marathon Tacticals. I stand corrected on this. Did not know they made watches, as I know them for their straps.


Anyway, the basic specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds (sub-dial at 6 o'clock)
Case: 316L stainless steel, 46 mm diameter, 12.46 mm thick, 22 mm lug width
Crystal: sapphire (domed)
Movement: Miyota automatic calibre 8245
Water resistance: 10 ATM
Price: USD 195

The case back.


The movement, Miyota 8245. It is based on the Miyota 8215, with upgraded finish.


I do like the watch. The luminosity of the watch is just awesome. All the hands are luminous, even the tiny second hand.
