WWI Ace conquers time travel

In World War I, Dieudonne Costes fought head-to-head against lead-spitting enemy planes over the Balkans. In WWI dogfights, victory was decided in a fraction of a second. The first multi-function wristwatches forever changed air combat, allowing pilots to time complicated maneuvers and coordinate attacks.

Ten years later, the crack French pilot faced a different kind of challenge: navigating the pitch black skies over the South Atlantic. Behind the stick of his aircraft, he soared across the time zones from Senegal to Brazil, setting the record for the world’s first non-stop flight across the South Atlantic. We studied countless classic aviator timepieces to match the vintage styling and design. Our watchmakers updated the movement for the 21st century, making it even more accurate and reliable than the originals.

The Stauer Flyboy 1916™ features a stunning dial, set inside a case finished in warm rose gold. Three tachymeters and a movable bezel measure speed and ascent and the chronograph functions allow you to measure elapsed time. Interior complications mark minutes and hours and include a 24-hour display. The watch is water-resistant to 10 ATMs and features a titanium band. Every decent Ace should have one up his sleeve. Fits wrists 6 ¾"–9".

Pleasantly surprised

When I ordered it I didn''t realize the case is also Titanium. At that time it was a "Flyboy with Titanium band." Given the case and band are titanium the watch is very light. It is also very attractive.I would have given it a 5 star, but it lacks two somewhat important items. (1) it doesn''t have a split time function...only start, stop and reset.and (2)it lacks a fractional second timing indicator...in other words it times only in seconds and minutes (up to 60). Bottom line...it is worth the price.
