Product Details

Limited Edition of 33 Pieces

Welcome to the new Dekla Flieger Friday Type A Bronze, featuring a CuSn8 bronze case and stunning blue dial.

The massive diamond crown is another distinctive feature of this watch, as is the engraved case back with the "FF" designation for Flieger Friday.

Classic Flieger

The Dekla Flieger Friday Type A Bronze combines historic design elements with modern in-house engineering in a CuSn8 bronze case.

Dekla is a German watch manufacture based in Stuttgart.  They specialize in the the building of watch cases, certain movement parts, watch dials, and the production of hands - all in-house.  Their engineering capabilities and hands-on approach allow them to produce watches with a remarkable attention to detail.  

While the design dates back more than 80 years, we believe Dekla has set a new standard for Made in Germany Flieger watches.

Flieger Friday Edition

This new watch features a stunning navy blue dial, made completely in-house by Dekla.  The color is a rich blue (Pantone 19-3832) with Arabic numerals and BGW9 SuperLuminova.

Most German Flieger watches apply 6 to 7 layers of SuperLuminova, but Dekla has upped the game on this dial and applied 25 layers of SuperLuminova on both the numbers and markers to ensure outstanding visibility at night.

14K Solid White Gold Hands

The hands on this new watch are also made completely in-house by Dekla.

Starting with solid 14K white gold, Dekla uses a hand brushed technique to finish each hand before applying the 25 layers of white BWG9 SuperLuminova on the interior.

Special Case Engraving

In keeping with historic pilot's watches, this watch has "FL 23883" engraved into the side of the case.  Early German pilot's watches featured the same engraving to certify its worthiness as an official pilot's instrument. 

"FL" (Fliegnummer) meant that it was affiliated with aviation equipment. "23" meant that it was a navigational device, while "883" confirmed that the watch was tested by the research institute (Deutsche Versuchsanstalt fur Luftfahrt). 

What's So Special About Bronze?

As bronze ages and patinas, the overall look of the watch changes with it.  For a watch like this, the bronze case allows the watch to quickly develop a vintage look that matches its historic design.

The watch case is crafted from CuSn8 bronze, with the exception of the case back which is stainless steel.  Each watch case will develop its own natural patina over time due to the gradual oxidation of the bronze, adding to the truly special nature of each piece.  

Important features of this watch include:
  • 14K solid white gold brushed hands
  • 25 layers of BGW9 SuperLuminova
  • CuSn8 bronze case with stainless steel case back
  • Rich navy blue dial
  • Slightly domed sapphire crystal with double AR coating
  • Massive bronze diamond crown
  • SW210-1 manual winding movement with fine adjustment
  • Water resistant to 100 meters

This watch is fitted with a blue leather Dekla strap with brass rivets.
