Pilot Chronograph Modern (Black) - Classic Leather
The Lightwell Chronograph offers a modern and sustainable update to the iconic pilot chronographs of WWII

Seiko VS75 Solar Movement
A discrete solar panel underneath the dial converts both natural and artificial light into electrical energy, so the watch is constantly charging– even indoors and in cloudy weather.
Two minutes of sunlight provides 24 hours of autonomous time-keeping power. Fully charged, the movement will operate for 6 months without light.
Unlike conventional quartz watches, this movement does not use a silver oxide battery and will therefore never require a battery replacement.
316L Stainless Steel Case
The case of the Lightwell Chronograph is a nod to the classic WWII-era pilot watch: a bold chamfered bezel atop a cylindrical center case with slab sides and tapered lugs that come to a smooth, flat end.
The case is made using surgical grade 316L stainless steel, chosen for its high strength and corrosion-resistance. Measuring 38.5mm wide, 11.5mm thick and 46mm from lug to lug, the case is compact, well-balanced, and ideal for everyday use.
100 Meter Water Resistance
We integrated a screwdown crown and caseback to achieve a 10 ATM water resistance rating. Capable of being submerged 100 meters underwater, the Lightwell Chronograph is tough enough to go surfing, fishing, or snorkelling in the deep end.
Sapphire Crystal & AR Coat
A thick, flat sapphire crystal protects the dial while offering low-maintenance durability. Incredibly scratch-resistant, Sapphire is rated nine out of ten on the Mohs hardness scale, second only to diamond.
We applied several layers of anti-reflective coating to further improve clarity and light transmittance.
We applied several layers of SuperLuminova BGW9 onto the hands and along the hour track of the dial to provide legibility in low-light environments.
Our straps are made using full grain vegetable-tanned leather that will wear in beautifully over time.
Although chrome-tanned leather is cheaper and faster produce, we use vegetable-tanned leather because it uses organic tannins instead of toxic chemicals, making it the smarter and healthier choice for both the planet and craftsmen that hand make our straps.
Quick-Release Spring Bars
Our straps feature quick-release spring bars that make it easy to change straps without the a tool.
Simply pull the lever back to unhinge the pin and you can change the look, feel, and function of the watch in seconds.
