This is a limited edition Dalton watch manufactured in 70 pcs. The watch has been developed in collaboration with Swedish fighter pilots at the 212nd fighter squad, call-sign "Dalton". The watch celebrates the Swedish Air Force and is inspired by Swedish historical fighter jets.
The Dalton Chronograph has a 41 mm wide watch case that combines smooth curves with sharp edges. A balanced combination of satin brushed and polished stainless steel creates an exclusive yet discreet look. The shape of the case forms a seamlessly transition to the bracelet, which bends comfortably around the wrist and makes the watch very comfortable to wear.
The two crown guards are inspired by the two intakes of the Swedish fighter aircraft Jas 39 Gripen. Along with the pushers, which have an aerodynamic shape, when looked at from the right side angle, the Dalton watch case has the characteristic appearance of an airplane seen straight from the front.
The watch face and watch dial are heavily inspired by various instruments and gauges in the Swedish fighter aircrafts that have been used in the Swedish Air Force throughout the years. The font of dial numbers and indexes have been collected from different cockpit gauges, and they all use a yellow vintage lume inspired by classic pilot chronograph watches from the 1950's-1960's.
The watch runs on a movement from Seiko called VK63 which is a combination of modern 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. This hybrid movement makes the Dalton watch a very reliable, accurate and durable wrist watch. The top surface of the sapphire crystal is treated with a coating protecting it from stains and fingerprints. The bottom surface of the crystal has a double anti-reflective coating to create the best possible visibilty. The watch has a water resistancy of 10 atm / 100 meters with a screwed down crown.
The left subdial shows elapsed minutes and is synchronized with the center-positioned second hand showing elapsed seconds. The lower subdial shows live seconds and the right subdial the 24 hours of the day.
