Since its foundation Hindenberg has made very clear, where its passion is to be found: in the look of iconic pilot’s watches and the passion for aviation. And now Hindenberg has launched a new Swiss made model: The Air Lancer. This watch is right out of every aviation enthusiast’s dream, combining a classic look with Swiss made quality.

Apart from the indexes, the dial shows the three, six and nine in big Arabic numerals. Due to the big indexes and the prominent hands, the Hindenberg Air Lancer provides good legibility. The minute and hour hands are filled with lume for good legibility even in the dark.
The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The stainless steel case measures 42 mm in diameter and 11 mm in height. This watch is prominent on the wrist but not bulky and with its height it can easily slide under a sleeve.
Furthermore, the case is also water-resistant up to 10 atm.

Inside works a Swiss made automatic calibre, the Sellita SW200-1. This movement is known for being a real workhorse; it is highly dependable, reliable and precise. It features hours, minutes, seconds and a date display and a power reserve of 38 hours.

The Hindenberg Air Lancer comes on a leather strap complementing the look of the dial and with contrasting stitches in white.
Four different models of the Hindenberg Air Lancer are available: the one above with the all-silver/white dial, one with a partly black dial and a stainless steel case, one with the same dial complemented by a black case. And a version with a partly brown dial and a leather strap of the same color.
