    Geoffrey Roth pilot watch

    Hi Everyone,

    Again, it has been too long since I have posted............

    We will soon be releasing our take on a pilots watch. Bhanu Chopra gave an great introduction to it here https://www.watchuseek.com/flieger-f...h-hh7-flieger/. There are a few revisions since this was written.

    The starting price with the ETA 2892-A2 has been changed to $2,900.00. This will include a sapphire back and our tungsten rotor. It will come standard with a 22mm leather strap, but there are options for a milanese (shark mesh) bracelet.

    We are also happy to announce a limited edition series of these watches that will be a tribute to the B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" that is flown by The Collings Foundation. These watches will have a dial with some of the Witchcraft nose art printed on it, the Collings Foundation logo engraved on the dial and a solid case back with a flying shot of the airplane engraved on it. This watch will come standard with a matte finish 316L case, lacquered dial with printed lume, bronze crown, blued steel hands with superluminova, and a leather strap. It will have a Miyota 9015 movement. The starting price on this watch will be $2250.00, with $250.00 of the sale being donated to the Collings Foundation. This will help to keep this fantastic aircraft flying in their "Wings of Freedom" tour.

    I hope to have the first 30pcs in this series finished by mid to late March.

    Nice, unique take on a fleiger. I LOVE the hands. I just cant make that price make sense in my head. There may be something I'm missing, but its just not for me.

    I like the overall look of the watch, but the yellow "Witchcraft" with the large dropping bomb would rule that watch out completely for me--much too intrusive, despite its namesake, and this is 2020, not ten years after the war. And then there is the price, about three times what I would expect to pay. Just my opinion of course, but thanks for sharing, and thanks for sponsoring--good luck with your sales!

    $2,900 for a ETA movement, $2,250 for a 9105 are you freaking kidding me. Why would I pay $3k for one of these when for the same money I could get a Tudor, a little more I can get an IWC.

    Visited the Collins Foundation webpage on the B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" early history and restoration. And, how its fascinating restoration from originally being a static display to an actual flying aircraft. All the best in your limited edition series; and, your part in the campaign to keep this aircraft flying in the "Wings of Freedom" air shows.

    Lovely case and lug design. Like others I find the price hard to swallow. However It’s nice to see something a little different. Best of luck!
