Every watch in the Hindenburg collection is designed by the inspiration of the German aircraft carrier LZ 129 Hindenburg, as it carried hundreds of passengers for thousands of miles while millions of Germans were watching in amazement below. To this day, it remains as one of the largest aircrafts to ever fly.
Flying from Germany to the U.S ten times and seven times to Brazil in 1936, the LZ 129 Hindenburg proved to be a reliable and powerful aircraft. Each watch in this collection includes unique features, such as a seconds sub-dial or a date display, built with high German craftsmanship.
The 7060-4 watch embodies a comfortable fit, weighing 62 grams with a case diameter of 40 x 12 mm thick. The silver polished stainless steel case features a crystal exhibition case back with 4 screws, making the movement visible without having to open the case.
With a water resistance of 3 ATM (30 meters), this stylish German made watch is suitable for everyday use. The bezel is very similar to the Junkers Bauhaus watches we’ve reviewed as it is very thin and not as noticeable when looking at the dial.
The 7060-4 is powered by a Japanese Miyota 9132 automatic movement by Citizen with 26 jewels. The movement features hours, minutes, central seconds, a date, a power reserve indicator and a 24 hours sub-dial.
With a maximum 40 hour power reserve, this watch makes the daily ritual of winding a pleasure and a great satisfaction. This movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a measurement of 13.5 x 5 mm thick. Its motor accuracy is -10/+30 seconds per month.
The pure beige dial features a date display located at the 3 o’ clock position, a power reserve indicator located between the 11 and 1 o’ clock positions and a 24 hours sub-dial located at the 6 o’clock position, making this a reliable watch.
Its elegant black Arabic numerals on the hour and minute indicators match with the elegant hands making it easy to identify the time. The 24 hours sub-dial is white and divided into 4 hour intervals contrasting itself from the beige dial with black Arabic numerals and a red hand. The power reserve indicator has a thin black hand with matching black Arabic numerals in 10-minute intervals and “minute” highlighted in red.
The 20 mm brown leather strap with stitching on the sides makes this watch suitable for any casual and formal wear. The buckle closure has a secure fit for all of your activities.
Its stainless steel crown has ridged edges with a clear silver front for easier ability to adjust the time.
The domed hesalite crystal creates an antique look. It not only provides a reflection of the dial, but also acts as a vital protector since the bezel of this case is very thin.
This timepiece portrays unique features with a retro style and simple design that will have all eyes on your wrist.
