Vintage Military Style, Swiss Movement

The California

The California references to the dial style of the same name. On the top half of the dial you will notice the roman numerals, whereas the bottom half is adorned with arabic numerals. This dial style originated in the 1930s and has since become iconic.

Don't be fooled by its stylish looks, it's the perfect expedition watch, but then again, it’ll look just as good at the office.

Military Inspiration

We've always been captivated by vintage objects, notably watches. The military has always been a source of innovation in terms of design usability and robustness. Naturally, vintage military watches was one of our main source of inspiration for the Pioneer Collection.

The California Dial

The iconic dial is the main attraction here. The bold numerals, a combination of Roman and Arabic numerals are printed on the dial. To make things even more unusual, we decentered the second hand and used a small second hand symmetrically located at 6 o'clock.

Practical

The Swiss Ronda quartz movement powering the California offers incredible time-keeping accuracy, virtually no maintenance, and is easy to replace if needed. This is what we call uncomplicated ownership.

Styled after vintage military watches, the California brings back an iconic look in an updated package. The versatile 42mm case is easily dressed up or down depending on your needs.

Luminescence

One of the key requirements of military watches is the presence of luminescent pigment on the dial and hands. Luminescence allows one to read the time accurately even in very poor or low-light conditions. It can come in very handy during a critical mission... or a midnight run to the convenience store.
