Paulo Fanton’s A-13A Pilot Watch Now Available for Pre-Order

Share this story:

Earlier this year, we wrote about a really cool pilot watch project happening on Watchuseek. The A-13A pilot watch is, as the name suggests, inspired by the A-13A aircraft clock, which is a favorite of brand founder Paulo Fanton. As one might expect then, his watch is an attractive interpretation of that design. Many of our readers were really drawn to the project and we’ve even gotten a few emails from people who wanted to be kept in the loop when the watch went live.

To get production started on the first lot of 500 watches, Paulo is looking for 75 people to commit to the project (as of this writing, 50 slots have already been filled). The initial pre-order deposit is €50 for those of us outside the EU, and the final price of the watch will be €650. If Paulo doesn’t reach that magic number, all deposits will be refunded.  But at this point, that does not seem likely.

All in all, this is a really cool initiative and one that I’ve been following with some interest for quite some time now. Watch this space for a possible review in the future (Paulo currently has all of his lenders on the wrists of actual pilots). In the meantime, if you’d like to get your hands on one, visit A-13A.

    I too have put my deposit down. As an avid Lemania collector (at present 10 watches, 2 clocks, 2 cockpit clocks including an orginal A-13 A, 4 stopwatches and one alarm) I am a big fan of the central-minute chrono, and good new ones are hard to find. This is defintiely one. I am looking forward to it
