The ASKANIA wristwatch BREMEN is a tribute to the Junkers W33, named “Bremen”. It was a testimony to the first plane in the world to cross the Atlantic from east to west. Thanks to the aeronautical masterly performance of the crew and the precision of the ASKANIA on-board compass, this flight was able to secure an entry in the history books. A pilot watch with history.
The case of the BREMEN is made exclusively of stainless steel 316L. The steel, which is also used in aviation and surgery, is distinguished by corrosion-resistance, resilience and extreme hardness. This guarantees lifetime durability. Ultra-hard and scratch-resistant sapphire glass is used to protect the dial.
Askania Kaliber 4062
The movement is based on a completely revised ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, which rests on 25 rubies. This caliber is a mechanical movement with self-winding and chronograph function. The ASKANIA 4062 operates in a balance of 4 Hz (28800 A/h per hour) and is therefore absolutely precise, robust and accurate.
