So you're 25 years old and you've just completed the first non-stop transatlantic flight in history, what do you next? You go and design an essential navigation tool for aviators, one that can figure out your exact whereabouts on the planet using just your watch. Yes, Charles Lindbergh was the very definition of an overachiever and now his Hour Angle timepiece is getting a new version that stays true to the original's function, but updates the watch with a titanium case, a black PVD steel bezel, and an automatic movement with 46-hour power reserve.
