Key Features

At 12mm thick, the full stainless steel body of this 1970’s Corvair is an imposing but comfortably sized timepiece. There is a brutalist feel to the solid tonneau shaped case, and accompanying integrated bracelet. The watch features a charming and categorically 70’s TV screen-shaped dial, with a silver-brown brushed smoke effect beneath the indices. It still retains the original tritium lume in the baton style hands and hour markers. There is also a highly legible day-date indicator at the 3 position.
