Vulcain Aviator Instrument Chronograph

After the success enjoyed by the new AVIATOR INSTRUMENT CHRONOGRAPH range presented at Baselworld 2014, the Manufacture in Le Locle is offering a sporty interpretation for the end of this year.

This new model reaffirms, the sporting, virile side of its nature with a new DLC-coated case framing a black Superluminova- enhanced dial and fitted with a vintage-style brown strap.

The functions and detailed finishing remain identical: hours, minutes, date through a window at 6 o’clock, central chronograph seconds hand, 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock. In a nod to aviation, the latter recalls the “Alarm Flag” featured on the frequency altimeter appearing on cockpit instrument panels. The dynamic design of this model is further enhanced by the open-worked oscillating weight providing a glimpse of the movement.
