HISTORY - FLIEGER WATCHES

 

In 1940, the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Imperial Air Ministry) created a specification for Flieger watches (‘Flieger’ is German for ‘Pilot’) for their pilots to use for timing and navigation during flights. Also known as “Beobachtungsuhren” or “B-Uhren” (observation watches) Two dial types were defined – Baumuster A and Baumuster B.

Famous brands that produced Flieger watches during the period included IWCStowaA .Lange & SöhneWempe, and Laco. It is important to note that none of these brands owned the design as it was produced to strict specifications provided by the Imperial Air Ministry of Germany.

 

PANZERA Flieger Watches  are a faithful homage to the Baumuster A pilot watch design, that was produced from 1940 to January 1941 with the integration of modern day features. In recognition of this modern vintage style, the Flieger 47 MECHANICA Automatic Pilot Watch collection highlights the progression of modern aviation; with a striking seconds hand tipped with red and white stripes symbolic of the propellor blades used in aircraft from yesteryear and an intricately decorated case back depicting the blades of a jet turbine used in the aircraft of today.

The Flieger 47 MECHANICA Pilot Watch Collection combines form, function and quality ensuring accuracy and pride of ownership whenever it is worn.

PRODUCTION

 

From original design through to final assembly and quality control, the critical processes are carried out in our state of the art facilities in Australia.

All of our Flieger Watches are cased up by master watch makers, and after five days of quality, shock, and water resistance testing each watch is logged in our database by it’s unique serial number. This serial number is the unique identity of every watch and is laser engraved onto the outside of every watch case.

After the packaging, labelling and sorting, all products are then dispatched from our Australian automated warehouse to all locations throughout the world.

S-LEX Crystal*

*S-LEX Crystal :
is an ulta hardened proprietary mineral crystal compound created specifically for PANZERA. S-LEX has been designed to better withstand impact that can damage double domed shaped watch crystals. It can also better resist surface scratching that can occur on traditional mineral crystals. S-LEX is a superior choice for double domed watch crystals in terms of strength, durability and increased readability.

Introducing “The Red Baron” – Amir Zohgi

 

PANZERA Flieger Watches have undergone extensive and extreme condition testing with our Aerobatic Stunt Pilot Amir Zohgi, also know as “The Red Baron”. A timepiece is a critical and compulsory piece of equipment to be worn by all pilots and must be accurate, easily readable, and withstand extreme pressures of up to 10 G-Force (or 10 times the force of gravity). The Flieger 47 MECHANICA Automatic Pilot Watch range has been thoroughly tested in these extreme flying conditions without losing +1 or -1 seconds between pre and post flight testing. The Flieger 47 MECHANICA Automatic Pilot Watch is the perfect choice for when accuracy and dependability matters most.

Amir Zohgi flew solo at the age of 16 like many young aviation enthusiasts. After finding that his passion was not to be an airline pilot, Amir found himself moving onto other career options. After leaving his aviation dreams behind, he spent most of the next 14 years building business’s and travelling the world as an International speaker and coach. After succeeding on his ventures, Amir realised that the passion of aviation was not something he could ever switch off and he endeavoured to make a return to flying and pick up where he left off. Soon enough Amir found himself at Red Barongetting his aerobatic training, followed by attaining his commercial pilots license.

Today Amir is a pilot and partner at Red Baron, a regular competitor at Australian aerobatics competitions, as well as continuing to coach and speak with individuals and large groups.
