C11 MSL MK1 Automatic - Black

"The clean image of a modern jets altimeter has been the primary inspiration for the latest additions to our squadron of aviation models. Both the C11 MSL Mk1 Automatic and C11 MSL
Mk1 Chronograph are based on a completely new case design that places a circular dial in a case which has its facets smoothed off and decorated with vertical brushing. Four screws suggest the dials original location on a cockpits instrument panel.

The result is one of the most attractive conversions from an altimeter to a wristwatch. Based on the cockpits of fast jets the C11 MSL is indeed an interesting and fast paced addition to the range, whilst less workmanlike than some if its peers, the C11 MSL retains its functionality.

The striking contemporary approach, which is in contrast to the usual retro nature of a pilots watch, is based on a 42mm case in 316L surgical grade stainless steel. Has museum grade sapphire crystal and high density SuperLuminova markings and hands. Time to get LOCKED ON."
