Timer is a first effort by Dievas to build a flieger that
cumulate the highest of product design and advanced engineering
that is entirely made in Germany by the finest German
factories. These are the factories that manufacture quality
watches for other bigger established brands.
The Dievas Flieger Timer drew its inspiration from
vintage Luftwaffe Borduhr found onboard the ME262, ME109
and other German fighter planes in the 1960s. Limited
to only 50 pieces worldwide, Dievas Flieger Timer is
highly sought after by collectors and gives a new meaning
to the word Limited Edition. Each watch is individually
engraved on the caseback with its unique serial number.
The movement found in the Flieger Timer is the vintage
Swiss ETA 2452 automatic movement which dates back to
the 1960s. This movement utilized in many iconic watches
of the time, enlisted into the portfolios of certain
world renown movements manufacturers, has a rather cherry
history to tell on its own. This particular batch of
rare vintage movement is completely unassembled, cleaned
and regulated by our master watchmaker. Unlike modern
movement, the 18,000bps movement ticks away leisurely
at its own pace, a reference to each of our hectic lifestyle
that sometimes we have to take a step back, relax and
enjoy the subtle quality of life. An assuring reminder
more so than often.
The clear, simple utilitarian matt black dial, red
hands filled with vintage blue luminous brings nostalgic
vintage aura to its appearance while a central sweeping
red second hand, a distinct signature of this particular
flieger, slowly ticks away. The dial is printed by an
old German dial manufacturer using vintage techniques
for that added touch.
The original Luftwaffe Borduhr was a cockpit clock
and as such it does not have a watch case. But if they
were to make a case of it, this will be it. The watch
case is made in Germany by one of the best case manufacturer
in Germany. The 42.5mm 316L stainless steel case is
milled and further hand finished by our master watchmaker.
Watch case is finally satin brushed throughout.
The tight bi-directional elapsed time bezel has a luminous
triangle at 12 to aid the pilot in flight planning duties
quickly. The strap is secured to the case using screw
bars. The watch wears bigger than it suggests due to
the large and robust lugs extending to 53mm. Although
the case is big, the curved lugs allow the watch to
wrap around the wrist like a pair of gloves. The flat
domed sapphire crystal is resistant to scratches and
so is the sapphire display back. The serial numbered
display back allows the owner to admire the rare movement
The Dievas Flieger Timer comes with Dievas Premium
handmade leather strap which is serially numbered on
the underside of the strap and on the topside of the
strap keeper. Additionally the watch comes with your
choice of Dievas 4mm leather strap. The Dievas signed
316L stainless steel buckle completes the entire watch.
