Custom made for the fighter pilots of the U.S. Navy only - no public sale.
This special model was made on the request of the U.S. NAVY for the fighter pilots of the "Strike Fighter Weapons School Pacific". The U.S. NAVY searched various manufacturers for the best pilot watch and chose Tourby WATCHES as their supplier. We would like thank the U.S. NAVY for your trust in us and we are particularly proud to be able to supply these watches. The watch meets the highest quality level for pilot watches (at least 200m water resistant, low pressure resistant, shock-proof, anti-magnetic, heat-resistant, Swiss movement with stopping seconds, Chronometer, Special Seals, Special oils, strong night luminescent dial and hands, almost indestructible and thick sapphire crystal, extremely robust and solid steel back, screwed crown, special steel spring bars). The watch is available exclusively for the fighter pilots of the U.S. Navy. Each watch gets a hand-engraving on the side of the case (this is used for identification).
The dial is printed with three logos: the combat aircraft Super Hornet 18 (the "work place" each pilot), the logo of the U.S. Navy and the logo of the fighter pilot school Pacific. The pressure is high quality pad printing process. This type of printing is extremely rare, especially when such complex designs. Each of the 11 the Different color requires its own clique (steel template) and each color must be printed individually. The print of the dials is extremely difficult and time consuming. It takes several weeks to print all dials. The details are so perfectly printed, that print is not blurred even under high magnification.
