We checked out the STROND DC-3 pilot watch on Kickstarter and liked what we saw. Powered by the trusty Seiko NH35 movement, with a sapphire crystal, see-thru caseback and chunky leather strap – or canvas option – this is a vintage style pilot watch, that captures the 1930s era of international flight.
With a 42mm case this is a mid-sized automatic that you can wear every day. Choice of black or cream coloured dial. Delivery is expected in November 2020, and prices start at just £249 which is very good value we think.
Updated 15.12.2020; The watch is now available for delivery from the Strond website, but the price is now £369
We love the onion crown and hands featuring a little splash of red near the tip. It is a really good looking watch for the money and no, we ain’t on commission!
