Explore the aeronautical world in the Catalina Chronograph featuring the aesthetics from of pilots and divers watches. This pilot watch is named after the Consolidated PBY Catalina seaplane, known in the Swedish Air Force as TP47, which was shot down by a Soviet MiG-15 while scouting for the missing DC-3 on June 16, 1952.
With a watch case made of 316L stainless steel with a black DLC coating, the Catalina Chronograph is made to stand the test of both time and the elements of air and water. The sapphire is symmetrically domed and treated with double glareproof coating. The bezel encircling the watch is cast in stainless steel to ensure use even in the toughest of environments and its rough grip surface enables turning of the ring , even with gloves.
The subdials of the Catalina Chronograph are inspired by the Catalina’s cockpit gauges, creating a sharp and elegant contrast against the background. The words “MIN” (minutes) and “TIM” (hours) are marked on the subdials, referring to the similar markings typically printed on the gauges of the cockpit in older aircrafts. The minute and hour hands as well as the indices have been treated with a luminous mass, enabling them to stand remain white in daylight and luminate green in the dark. The large skeleton-hands of the Catalina Chronograph are inspired by classic diving watches, strengthening the feeling that this watch is for both land and sea - just like the amphibious Catalina.
When using your MALM watch, the watch will be exposed to different types of stresses and strains. Like many other advanced watches and gauges, a very large number of components share a very limited amount of space and like other valuable items you should treat your MALM watch with great care. It is important that you do not expose the watch to unnecessary impacts, chemicals, solvents, hazardous gases, magnetic fields or very cold or hot environments.
The timepiece should be serviced and maintained regularly to work properly. Such services should be performed by MALM or a professional watchmaker for warranty terms to apply. We offer many service options for your watch, from repairing and replacing worn components, pressure testing, resealing, cleaning to polishing, engraving and change dials and more.

The watch runs on a movement from Seiko called VK64 which is a combination of quartz technology and traditional mechanical engineering. Hour- minute and second hands runs on battery and the chronograph runs on the mechanical parts with a 1/5 second sweeping hand.
The watch comes in an exclusive box that both protects it and is the perfect display. Beside the watch and any additional strap, the box also includes:
- The necessary tool to switch or adjust your bracelet or strap
