F Flight Time Round Two For Charlie Pilot F ollowing on the heels of the 3-hand automatic, the Air Blue Charlie series now offers the pilot design in both a chronograph, and a world-time/ alarm variation. Contrasting the cleaner dial of the three-hand, both new additions create a multi-function instrument feel on the dial with white Superluminova glowing blue at night on the critical hands and markers in both Charlie variations. Both versions are also quartz regulated and crafted in either a black PVD or a brushed finish 44mm stainless steel case rated to 10atm water resistance. A flat sapphire crystal protects the dial, and genuine leather straps with contrast stitching and case-matching matching rivets enhance the pilot feel. Changing the time and screwing the crown in is easy with the over-sized and knurled cone shaped crown. MSRP is $399 at www.airbluewatches.com 46 FUNCTION | AboutTime Magazine
