Junghans New Meister Pilot with DLC

Junghans has given the 2016 Meister Pilot an even more robust surface finish, making it more distinctive than ever. The DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating is in a class of its own: the dark anthracite colour lends the watch its unique appearance, with the material itself offering optimal protection against scratches and making the Meister Pilot a dependable co-pilot. The new timepiece adheres firmly to the tradition of pilot watches at Junghans: the legendary chronograph of 1955 was issued to the then newly-formed Bundeswehr.
The instrument-styled dial with its large numerals offers optimal legibility, as is also required for on-board clocks. Matt surfaces and the anti-reflection coated (both sides) sapphire crystal serve to keep light reflection to a minimum, including when flying at night, whilst the intensive white luminous material keeps the time display in focus. The Meister Pilot is powered by a dependable automatic calibre.
