The CDI is inspired by the Waltham Civil Date Indicator Aeronautical (CDIA) Clock, chosen by U.S. Navy Air force for its aircrafts during the World War II, such as the F6F Hellcat and the emblematic B24 Liberator.
The new Aeronaval CDI reinterprets the main innovative functions of its predecessor, combining technological features and high-quality materials enhanced by distinctive time readability. This is a high-end mechanical self-winding wristwatch powered by the Caliber W.DB-002 Dubois-Dépraz 331 movement. In addition to the 24-hour GMT hand, the CDI is unique due to the innovative central date indicator. The time zone and date settings can be adjusted with a simple touch using the original three-button feature on the side of the case.
Like the other models in the Aeronaval Collection its contemporary angular design highlights every single detail and feature, resulting in a daring, well-balanced state-of-the-art timepiece where nothing is left to chance.
It boasts a multi-laired Titanium G5 angular shaped 47mm case. The dial shadows the angular case design, with an interact embossed W pattern on different colored backgrounds. The particular second hand is angled upward, and the indexes and numbers are coated with Super-LumiNova® for maximum readability in all lighting conditions. The ceramic bezel is made of zirconium oxide. The sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective treatment. The watchband is in genuine VulCarboné® vulcanized rubber, and features an originally designed Titanium G2 deployante clasp. Finally, it is water resistant up to 300mts/30 bars. A combination of features that makes this watch an icon of contemporary luxury for men of unparalleled refinement.
