The Archimede Pilot Chronograph TriKompax mixes classic WWII Flieger-inspired dials with chronograph functionality and modern cases machined in Pforzheim, Germany. The Pilot dials stay true to its roots, with bold numerals and markings reinforced by potent lume for great nighttime visibility. The "TriKompax" chronograph is seamlessly integrated into the design, with recessed subdials at 3, 6 and 9.
At the Windup Watch Shop, the Pilot Chronograph TriKompax comes standard with German-made heat-blued hands, a display case-back with custom laser etching and two straps, a riveted leather strap and a US-Made ADPT Strap in black.

This caliber features 25-jewels,4 0-hour power reserve, date, chronograph functionality and hacking seconds (the second-hand stops when the crown is pulled out). The 7750 is a tried and true movement, thus making it a reliable favorite.
