The Pilar Edition of The Captain pays tribute to Ernest Hemingway's famous fishing vessel. Hemingway acquired the 38ft boat in 1934 and fished frequently in the waters off Key West targeting marlin and big game species. It's only fitting that this watch comes standard with a vintage-style stainless mesh dive strap reminiscent of those often worn by captains in his time. The crystal blue dial in our sun ray pattern will have you thinking about the tropical waters of the Keys every time you strap it on.
The Captain is our first automatic watch to utilize our newest H3 technology to provide 24-hour illumination of the dial's hour markers and hands — meaning your adventure can start before dawn and can keep going well after the sun sets. The trigalight® glass tubes manufactured by MB-Microtec in Switzerland create luminosity that leads the way during offshore pursuits at any time of day or night. As any angler knows, comfort is key. That's why we uniquely machine the crown on the left side of the casing to avoid hand and wrist irritation for the active sportsman. This watch features a 316-L surgical stainless steel case with anti-reflective sapphire crystal and date window at 4 o'clock. The crown screws down for water-tightness tested to 200m/660ft.
