In the nineteenth century, when explorers cruised the world, the observatory pocket watch was a timing tool that only the captain could own, and it was also the official title of the captain. Ulysse Nardin’s observatory pocket watch is a timepiece coveted by naval officers and merchant ship captains around the world. Its remarkable maritime history inspired the development of nautical observatory watches and reached the ultimate display of craftsmanship and art.
Today, Athens Watch launches a new generation of chronometer watches designed for the leaders of the new era-nautical series pilot watches. The term Torpilleur torpedo boat is the name of an early small speedboat that was flexible and agile and could easily surpass larger ships. This is a watch specially designed for modern explorers. The nautical series Pilot’s Watch is a light and slim version of the most representative marine astronomical watch of the Athenian watch, suitable for the young and elegant new generation with a stylish style.
Athens Watch Observatory Pocket Watch
The vibrant design of the Marine Pilot’s Watch retains the craftsmanship and precision with which Swiss watchmaking is highly respected. The design is inspired by the Marine Observatory Watch. The Marine Pilot’s Watch is also equipped with the UN-118 automatic movement, equipped with a 60-hour power reserve and a proprietary silicon anchor escapement. In addition, each watch is accompanied by the Swiss official observatory certification COSC and Athens watch certification certificate, in line with the strict quality certification of the Athens watch factory.
The fine design is clearly visible on the dial, including the iconic elements of the nautical series: Roman numerals, the brand Logo, and the brand’s founding year 1846 is presented in eye-catching red. The elegant hands of the nautical watch have an easily recognizable design, while the hands of the nautical series pilot watch have been redesigned. The 6 o’clock position is a small second hand and a circular calendar window display, and the 12 o’clock position is a 60-hour power reserve display.
