America's great polar aviator, Admiral Richard E. Byrd, would be proud to wear this watch. His grandson does.
We wanted to pay tribute to the legendary naval aviator, Admiral Richard E. Byrd. This is the result. A minimalist pilot’s watch with a radiant dial and intricately styled hands, a combination that is a throwback to the aviation watches of yesteryear. We must have done something right when we built this watch, because shortly after its release, Richard E. Byrd himself ordered one. At first we assumed it was a prank. Until we discovered it was his namesake grandson. Here’s to the Byrds! Calfskin strap. 3 years warranty. Case Made in USA. The new Kobold R.E.
