A modern classic pilot watch

Our first watch design to be announced publicly was a bi-compax hand-wound chronograph. It was highly inspired by the classic Heuer 1550 used by most Western air forces during the 1960’s. The Celegin Draken was a modern, Swedish interpretation with top specifications such as BGW9 illumination, sapphire crystal with internal AR coating and ceramic bezel.

It’s name is taken from the classic Swedish fighter jet, SAAB J35 Draken, in operation in the Swedish air force between 1962-1999. The silhouette of airplane is also found on the dial between center and 6 o’clock.

A change of movement led to a time & date version instead of a chronograph: our “founder’s limited edition” with the reference J35F. It was quickly sold out after having received a warm welcome by the watch community. Draken S is our non-limited, enhanced version.
