NEW: Pilot Chronograph ORLAN

This new Pilot series honors the russian cosmonaut suit "ORLAN".

The Orlan space suit (Russian: Орлан meaning sea eagle) is a series of semi-rigid one-piece space suit models designed and built by NPP Zvezda. They have been used for spacewalks (EVAs) in the Russian space program, the successor to the Soviet space program, and by space programs of other countries, including NASA. A variant of the Orlan Spacesuit is used by the Chinese Space Program. For more info click  >> here << on wikipedia. 

This Pilot Chronograph is presented in a black  (abrasion resistant!), solid stainless steel case with 40 mm diameter ( with crown 44 mm ) , with  rotating bezel ( in one direction ) and a  screwed,  crystal back.

The special silver-grey dial shows red arabic numbers  and luminous hands. The dial is cyrillic labeled.

This Orlan version with the special silver-grey dial is available with either red or blue numbers - like the original ORLAN space suits. These were made also in blue or red ,  so that the cosmonauts can distinguish their equipment and recognize their suit. For observers on the space station it is also more easy like that to see from the distance , whether  Vladimir  or Nikolai drift by the window...

This watch is  equipped with a hardened flat mineral glass. 20mm bandwidth.

The "Orlan" is powered of the  robust and getting rare Poljot manual winding caliber 3133 with 23 jewels, 21.600 halfrotations/hour , shock protection and about 48 hours power reserve. This caliber  is decorated with blued screws!

Comes with a massive Pilot stainless steel strap  and an additional RIOS1931  black leather strap  - with traveller  watch case.
