STOWA x RAW Celebratory Edition: Darth Pilot
Embrace Your Dark Side with the Darth Pilot
The third time that RAW is working with STOWA also happens to be our darkest rendition.
Back to the Fliegeruhren (pilot watch) as a base template, we reimagined a rogue element of the famed Dirty Dozen Watches made for the British military in 1945. Apparently, about 150,000 watches were made and in our minds, a portion of these - clad in an all-black case with a centre-sweeping hand - was secreted away for a clandestine group of pilots.
The project code name? Darth Pilot.
The Darth Pilot boasts great elements and details including the use of a top grade ETA movement and X1 grade SuperLumiNova® painted indices, numbers, and hands.
Similar to its predecessors, the Darth Pilot comes with two casebacks: an exhibition caseback with sapphire crystal through which you can view the movement; and a second caseback, included separately in the set, that comes engraved with a custom design depicting the renegade squadron’s insignia.
Up the ante of your Darth Pilot with an optional purchase of a bund strap custom-made by our very own in-house leather craftsman.
A limited edition of 100 pieces, the Darth Pilot is a collectible addition.
STOWA is a watch manufacturer based in Engelsbrand, Germany and it has been making watches since 1927. Well-known as one of the few select companies that made Flieger Uhren (pilot watches) during WWII, the company has gained reputation amongst the watch collecting community with its well-built and well-designed watches.
The Darth Pilot marks the third collaboration between STOWA and RAW. Both brands had come together twice previously to produce made for Singapore special editions.
