TRANSGLOBE Cockpit Watch
Now here’s an extremely rare and unusual watch that is not seen every day. It’s a Transglobe Cockpit watch that is worn on the side of the wrist. This means that when you’re holding a joy stick the watch is facing upwards towards you allowing you to clearly the see the watch whilst flying. I’ve never seen one of these before and there is very little information about them available, so if anyone knows more about this watch I’d be interested to hear from them. The chocolate sunburst patina on the dial is quite stunning and has formed in the exact way you often see on revered vintage Rolex dials.
The lugs are huge, rounded affairs and interestingly have two sets of lug holes; one close to the case and another set at the end of the lugs, allowing to to be worn in different positions.
