Flyboy 1916 Midnight Wristwatch

During World War I, French fighter pilot Dieudonné Costes fought in countless dogfights with enemy planes. Timing was essential to victory, and the world’s first multifunction wristwatches forever changed air combat. They allowed pilots to execute complicated maneuvers and coordinate attacks. After the Great War, Costes, navigating the pitch black skies over the South Atlantic, soared across several time zones from Senegal to Brazil, while setting the record for the world's first nonstop flight across the South Atlantic.

The Stauer Flyboy 1916 Midnight pays tribute to early aviators, featuring a stunning dial set in a case fused in warm rose gold. Three tachymeters and a movable bezel measure speed and ascent, and the chronograph functions allow you to measure elapsed time. Interior complications mark minutes and hours and include a 24-hour display. Water resistant to 10 atmospheres, this beautiful timepiece features a crocodile-embossed, genuine leather band. Every aspiring ace needs one up their sleeve. $149
