Dodane 1857 Type 23 Montre Flyback Chronographe Swiss Automatic Pilot 42.5mm
We take trades against any of our watches!!! We also buy watch packages!!
When it comes to aviation watches, we’re generally limited to watches that follow a particular style (say, a flieger reference), or perhaps something that’s based on a model from a brand’s archives. It’s a much less common thing for us to have available a civilian variant of a model that’s available to an active military air force – but that’s precisely what we’ve got with this new model from Dodane 1857.
Now, in many watches we really lose both the lines of the piece, and, more importantly, the readability. Fortunately that’s not the case with the Type 23. We still pick up on the lines of the watch quite easily, as it’s not a complexly-styled case. Additionally, crisp white is used to mark out the minutes track, tachymeter ring, and the outer timing bezel. This styling is also carried over to the two sub dials of the chronograph (more on that complication in a minute).
This sharp contrast helps ensure readability of the watch remains high, at least for the minor functions of the watch. For the major function (you know, timekeeping), they’ve widened the numerals and hands a bit, allowing for more lume to be applied. This keeps readability up both day and night.
