Aéro Watch SA was founded in Neuchâtel in 1942 and quickly gained a reputation for quality triple calendar moonphase timepieces which are now very collectible.
The name "Aéro Watch" is now owned by Louis Erard, another independent Swiss watch manufacturer with a reputation for quality watches with individual styling. Aéro Watch is now seen on the dials of a comprehensive range of pocket watches but occasionally, they release a limited edition wristwatch and this pilot chronograph, in a numbered edition of just 100 pieces, is the first wristwatch to bear the name Aéro Watch since the limited edition skeleton of 1990. The entire edition is exclusive to Time Factors.
The stainless steel case has a fine brushed finish and fitted with a stainless steel screw back. The coin-edge milled bezel is polished and the crystal is sapphire. The black dial is a true black, not dark grey as often seen and the style is distinctly 1940s. The squelette hands and numbers are luminous. Rated water resistant to 5 ATM/50 metres/165 feet.
40 mm Ø, 47.7 mm lug tip to lug tip and 12.25 mm thick. Lug spacing is 20 mm.
