This watch is in tribute to Georges Guynemer, a legendary French military aviator with 53 victories at the time of his death.

A 45 mm case that is "shot-peened" steel with a grey PVD finish.  Self-winding automatic movement.  

The dial is opaline, with the indices and numerals writ with beige Superluminova.  

Hour and minute hands are filled with Superluminova to ensure legibility for "night flights".  

The central second hand is blued.  A limited edition of 500 pieces.
