Based on a streamlined version of the 256 pilot's chronograph developed for the Japanese market, our 356 series was created in 1996 with the characteristic FLIEGER [PILOT] logo on the matte black dial. With a case diameter of 38.5 mm, it is somewhat smaller, but even more successful in design. This classically elegant chronograph captures your attention with its clean, esthetic style. There is nothing to distract from the essentials. Everything is designed to ensure accurate reading of the various times. The hour, minute and centrally positioned second hand are skeletonized and coated with special long-lasting, luminous paint, as are the large, clearly readable Arabic numerals. The solid stainless steel case protects the proven classic Valjoux 7750 movement against adverse influences in the air as well as on the ground. The high-quality seal of the crown, push-pieces, back and acrylic glass makes the 356 PILOT water-resistant in accordance with DIN 8310 and pressure-resistant to 10 bar (= 100 m water depth).
