RGM’s new Pro Aviator 151A is an aviation-themed watch with a brushed stainless-steel case (it can also be requested in titanium) that measures in at 38.5 mm by 9.9 mm. It has scalloped lugs and a thin bezel. The dial is black with the hour markers over a satin-finished perimeter and the center is straight matte. The wide minute and hour hands are skeletonised and assume an arrow-shape to boot. There’s a conservative date between 4 and 5 o’clock, and all yellow-tinged markings are superlumed.
Flipping the watch over, one can see the RGM/ETA 2892-A2 automatic movement. It beats at 28,800 vph for around 40 hours. The watch comes on a vintage-style, calf leather, waterproof strap that makes it functional as well as technically and aesthetically pleasing — and recalls the early days of intercontinental aviation.
The RGM Pro Aviator 151A will be available in stainless steel for an expected retail price of $3,350, and in a titanium case for $4,350 — via HODINKEE
