Athaya Vintage Type B Pilot Watch

Recommended Posts


Hello guys,

Want to introduce myself and my project in making my first own brand watch. I believe its better to share my project here too


I had make and sell watch parts, especially for vintage watch project quite long, and i think this year will be a good start to make my own brand watch.

My first watch will be a Pilot Watch style. Made base on Laco FL23883 which its one of the greatest vintage pilot watch that ever made.

Here is the watch specs will be :

- Watch Code Name : AV - Type B Pilot Watch

- Material : 316L Stainless Steel, dark sandblasted finished

- Movement : Miyota Automatic 8215

- Dimension : Case diameter 47 mm, Lug to Lug 54.75mm, Thickness 17mm

- Lug size : 22mm

- Crown size : 8.20mm

- Water Resistant : 5ATM (50 meters)

- Glass : Sapphire Glass, with AR Coating

- Dial : Type B Pilot dial, ivory indicates w/ Superluminova

- Hands : H/M - Blue coated, S - Black coated - w/ honey gold Superluminova

- Caseback : Screw in with my engraving on the outer side.

- Strap : Vintage leather strap with Roller Buckle

- Packaging : Vintage leather Watch case

Here is some Cad drawing for the watch :




Instead of complete watch, i will sell the case kits also, case is made for using miyota 8215 movement, but I am sure it can use other movement.

The inner case diameter will be 44mm, so it will able to accept big movement such as Hamilton 4992B. Case kit will be available in both display and solid caseback.

And also I just rebuild my website again : http://www.athayavintage.com. Please check it out

Yes, seems to be the best vintage "copy" of a "Laco Beobachtungsuhr B" I've ever seen. The price is very good, the dial is perfect, the lume will be fantastic, the case looks fantastic, the crown is perfect, the buckle looks great, the watch comes in a nice, vintage leather pouch - what else do we need?!? I'm interested in some more pics of the hands and of the strap. And - sure - in a preorder!
