The 1963s are based on a very rare and desirable military pilot chronograph from the early 60’s, and are perhaps Dan Henry’s most ambitious and complex watches. Through an impeccable eye, they wove together a panda-dial with three large, textured registers and sandwich construction, allowing for a layer of creamy lume to show through precisely cut markers. The bezel is then has a unique 12-click bi-directional mechanism that aligns with a satisfying click, which sits atop a case with finishing that rivals watches several times more costly.
The 1963 is powered by the Miyota 6S20 caliber. This Japanese Quartz movement features a chronograph complication with a center 1/20 second hand, a 60-minute totalizer and nine, small-seconds at six, a 1/10 second counter at three and an approximate battery life of 3 years.
The watch is accompanied with two straps (one leather, one nylon) and a canvas strap roll. Limited edition of 1963 pieces.
