The Catalina is a Swedish pilot watch named after the amphibious aircraft Consolidated PBY Catalina, known in the Swedish Air Force as the TP47, and famous for being shot down in 1952 by the Sovjet Union when searching for the missing Douglas DC-3.
The watch case, case back and bezel is made out of 316L stainless steel that has been applied with a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating. Applying this thin DLC-layer adds hardness to the entire surface of the watch, protecting the case and bracelet from scratches and other forms of wear. It also prevents dust build-up, protecting parts and reduce friction between watch components. The carbon dial adds a unique and luxurious look to the complete watch face. Indices are raised from the dial and applied with Swiss Super LumiNova C1 that is white in daylight and glows with green color in darkness. Pushers and crown has been designed with grooved grip-surfaces typical for different details in cockpit and aviation in general.
