Whole pilot watches genre became increasingly popular recently. Steinhart is not exclusion from this rule. B-Uhr series copies classic model, which was worn by fighter pilots. My guess is that due to clear and easy to read style those watches are often seen on the wrists. Nevertheless, this type is usually not that generous on various functions and it is difficult to add something there without breaking streamlined image. In other words German watchmaker faced quite difficult task of adding extra things without breaking traditional look.
I am happy that here company decided to go with quite neat but useful feature – second time zone. Take a careful look at photos, do you see it? Steinhart Nav.B-Uhr 44 Dual Time Titanium manages to have additional thing without giving even a small hint. Yes, this is second time zone indicator, which is implemented with help of dark part. Only yellow pointer would show owner second time indication. In my opinion it is really nice feature, which will come handy in some situations. Should I remind that it will help you forget about moving watch hands back and forth while flying somehwere?
Watch comes with ETA-2893-2 with 21 jewels inside. Note that it is operated with help of screwed crown, which is finished in classic shape. Add here titanium matte case, and you have perfect mix, which should look good in any situation. By the way, rear cover comes with transparent insert. The only thing that I would prefer to see – riveted strap instead of simple leather one.
Steinhart Nav.B-Uhr 44 Dual Time Titanium – Price
Price tag has 640 EUR on it, and in my opinion it is quite reasonable amount. For that sum you will get decent-looking pilot watch with useful feature inside. With all those diver watches around, this new model might be a nice “breakaway” from common choice.
