Eza Watches AirFighter

Netherlands based Eza Watches presents the AirFighter, a modern interpretation of the classic military issued pilot watches with some subtle details.

The Eza AirFighter has a stylish appearance with its brushed finish and narrow high gloss finish on the side. Inside the AirFighter you will find a Swiss automatic movement, caliber 2824-2 that is adjusted to six positions inside Eza’s watchmaking facility in The Netherlands.

The design is based on the classic pilot watches like the observer’s watches used during WWII. The AirFigher has modern touches like the engraved logo and model name on the inside of the sapphire glass and sunken dial to create more depth.
The AirFighter is Eza’s second watch since its resurrection in 2016. The brand started in 1921 in Pforzheim and is alive and kicking again. The AirFighter fits in the range of automatic and vintage inspired wristwatches as the vision of Eza Watches implies.

Eza Watches started in 1921 with the production of watchcases in Pforzheim, Germany. In the 1950’s, they became well-known for the construction of complete wristwatches. Eza Watches had a wide variety of watch cases and dial combinations. It was renowned for making affordable luxury timepieces with quality automatic and hand wound movements.
Since 2016 Eza Watches regained its independence under the leadership of Diederik van Golen and Adriaan Trampe, determined to return the company to its original brilliance and dynamism. The brand remains true to its original principles: quality watch cases, accuracy, craftsmanship and style.

The timepiece will be assembled at Eza’s watch making facility in the Netherlands and adjusted to 6 positions for even more accuracy. The AirFighter is available via the website and will retail at € 599,- excl. VAT, € 725,- incl. 21% VAT.
