First conceived in 1937, the twin-boomed P-38 was the most innovative plane of its day and the ultimate weapon, combining speed with unheard-of advances: two supercharged engines and a potent mix of four 50-caliber machine guns and a 20mm cannon The P-38 Lightning had a unique and compelling design and the watches pay homage to this industrial pre-war design with their cushion shaped stainless steel case, and dial font pulled directly from the instruments in the plane cockpit. The P-38 Day/Date model has a secondary hour hand that can be set to a second time zone (or to GMT time).
The Aviation Series watches are tied to the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the world‘s largest defense contractor, and maker of some of the most spectacular aircraft ever engineered. Initially developed for U.S. Air Force pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth jets, and now supplied to elite pilots of Air Forces around the world, these timepieces take precision to a higher level.
The unique Luminox Light Technology ensure at-a-glance visibility – in fact, the technology Luminox watches provide a constant glow 24/7, no matter what the conditions are, for up to 25 years. Most other watches use luminescent paint that has to be charged by a light source and fades very quickly, or a “push to light” system, where you push a button for battery-driven illumination.
