Szanto has extended the Heritage Aviator series to include midnight blue and green dials in their retro pilot watch collection. From its inception Szanto has focused on modern interpretations of retro types and these core fundamentals show through in the Heritage Aviator series. Easy to read with an emphasis on the minutes, the new dials embrace the current trends of green and blue dial watches. Both new versions feature brushed stainless-steel cases water resistant to 10atm without a screw-down crown. Rather, Szanto made a great choice by using a push/pull onion style safety crown that will not allow the watch to start running unless the crown is fully pushed in to the case. Healthy doses of SuperLuminova on the hands and indices make this easy-to-read day or night and accuracy is ensured with a Japanese quartz movement under the new dials, which themselves are protected under a hardened mineral crystal. The 41mm case is held in place with a genuine leather strap and attractively priced at $225.
