Created to commemorate the Allied victory in World War II:
the multi-function Dan Henry 1945 WWII Pilot Chronograph
with GMT bezel and sapphire crystal

World War II was a period of swift technological development, as engineers and designers created mechanisms that multiplied our power for timing and calculation as never before. Wristwatches became more accurate, tough, and reliable. Timepieces increasingly found roles as powerful problem solvers in war or peace, transforming the wristwatch into the man's accessory.

Pilot watches of World War II are the holy grail of watch collecting because of the intrinsic beauty of their precise engineering and essential tool in the most crucial period of the 20th Century. – DH

Story

The high lume cathedral hands of the Dan Henry 1945 WWII Pilot Chronograph are reminiscent of the cockpit instruments designed by Smiths and Bendix for the aircraft that fought in the skies of Europe and the Pacific. Combined with a complex telemeter, tachymeter dial and chronograph functions, the 1945 is a cockpit instrument for the wrist. The sharp coin edge bezel with high-visibility numbers, a red 12 o'clock triangle and the brushed steel case all recall the timepieces of Allied pilots flying in a bold and heroic era.
