Break Barriers with the Aviator MIG-29 SMT
Cutting through the sky like a bullet with stealth-like precision, the MIG-29 broke every limit that it was put to the test. Its performance raised expectations to new levels and set a new hi-tech era in aviation into motion. With appreciation for this fighter jet and its hi-tech generation, the Aviator MIG-29 SMT watch blends harmony in time indication, with cockpit nuances on the bezel, and multi-functional logarithmic calculations to make every second count—for now and for what’s ahead.
Back when aviation technology was emerging, the MIG-29 was the innovative spark to keep pushing beyond limits. With technology at its core, it was designed with lasers, a stealth mode, and it could fly at high-Mach speeds with impressive agility.
Paying tribute to this advanced fighter jet, the Aviator MIG-29 SMT is designed with hi-tech precision with a "won’t-back-down" performance. To start, the casing features a hi-tech surface and multi-finished with intricate details. Its bezel is modeled after the MIG-29 cockpit clock, and the sophisticated geometry of MIG-29 fuselage is hidden in the details. As for multi-functionality, the Aeronautical Slide Rule features hundreds of angles and various logarithmic relations to keep your focus headed in the right direction.
Hi-Tech Dial: Check
Inspired by the MIG-29’s dashboard instrument, featuring multi-functionality and multi-finishings, the dial lets you keep your eye on three levels of information: the aeronautical slide rule on the rotating reflector, the time and stopwatch with its three chronograph eyes, and the central stop second. Its clean indexes and bold hands offer easy readability, while the slide rule lines and the chronograph counter circles lend a hi-tech feel. Since every Aviator dial is the result of highly precise engineering and manufacturing skills, you get a high-level of quality that’s unlike any other.
Whether you need to calculate estimated fuel burn, ETA, or time en route, the left crown on the Aeronautical Slide Rule will navigate you to the answer. Based on the E6B flight computer used by pilot schools for training purposes, the Slide Rule features hundreds of angles and different logarithmic relations. The outer scale of E6B is engraved on the case bezel with an inversion from 6.0 to 1.0 to highlight the biggest calculation steps, while the inner scale is featured on the dial rotating reflector.
Rugged Casing: Check
The case is comprised of the bezel, body case and back case. With over dozens of elements assembled with the finest watchmaking techniques, the sophisticated geometric design draws inspiration from the aerodynamics of the fuselage and the MIG-29 cockpit clock. It is the iconic dashboard screw on the perimeter that gives this watch the rugged, instrumental feel while its intricate, multi-finished case components are outfitted in a hi-tech look. Well integrated into the watch’s design, the chronograph pushers and identical crown protectors on opposite sides of the case incorporate the sleek curves of the MIG-29 jet.
Drawing inspiration from air radar systems, the Aviator MIG-29 SMT features a screw-down case back. It is engraved with a MIG-29 aircraft and the customary three circles found on radars, serving as indication of technical and function details. Slightly curved on both sides, it is designed with a deliberate airflow camouflage pattern that extends to the back of the rubber strap for added comfort and perspiration-protection for the wrist. As with all Aviator watches, it is these precise details along with fine watchmaking techniques that help bring the aviation heritage of a renown fighter jet to life.
Aviator was established in 2000 with the mission to craft the best collection of modern day pilot watches for aviation professionals and watch enthusiasts. With each unique pilot’s watch being designed at Aviator's R&D facilities, inside the control tower of regional Swiss Jura airport, Aviator has looked to the heroes of the past, the dreamers of today, and the innovators of tomorrow to organically fuse the spirit of aviation in both function and design. Built to withstand the rigors of flying with a distinct style you can call your own, each Aviator timepiece serves as a reminder to stay passionate in all your life’s adventures.
