No retro, but cool: Hindenberg Vintage Aviator

Spread the love

At this point it is no longer a novelty for regular readers of my blog I’m a big fan of retro watches. I like more, of course, the original from the 60s, 70s and 80s, but the retro design certainly follows right behind them.

And then there is a type of design that I would not qualify as “retro” but as “vintage”. These are watches whose exterior reminds rather the steampunk look as design, rather than the 60s to 80. The Hindenberg Vintage Aviator it is such a candidate. It seems a part of an old machine, and stainless steel designed intentionally grainy and with a used look is crucial part of it. The bezel takes this a step further. It looks to me like a spiral steel, even after long years of use in the factory still makes its service reliably.

I really like the dark variant of the clock. The Vintage Aviator is also available in a version with white dial, but the black version seems very good. In the black dial find one – after all, the clock is called “Aviator”, ie pilot – clearly legible Arabic numerals. This is a design feature that in principle I always like. The three clockwise have a nice high contrast to see under glass scratch resistant sapphire. As befits a flyer, Vintage has a thick leather strap riveted.

The automatic watch (caliber Hindenberg H-09110) features indicators date, day, month and year.The blued screws are a noble characteristic that fits well with the vintage theme. The Hindenberg has a water resistance of 5 ATM. This is not something exaggerated, but it is sufficient for normal daily use.

My conclusion: The Vintage Aviator Hindenberg is pretty good.
