Techné's modern interpretation of the classical flieger watch

Techné Instruments is proud to unveil the Harrier, a modern interpretation of the classical fliegeruhr (military pilot watch). Two years in the making, the display of the Harrier borrows cues from iconic navigation and timing instruments of the 20th century. The oversize minute tracks and Arabic numerals are inspired by altimeters and vintage German pilot timekeepers. The hollow luminous hands are borrowed from navigation compasses and the two dots by the 12 o'clock mark are borrowed from the British Wrist Watch Waterproof standard.
