Product Details

Built for Adventure

The Dekla Turbulenz V1 40 OS (orange seconds) may look like a pilot's watch, but it is built for adventures beyond the cockpit.

The Turbulenz series from Dekla is a line of tool watches focused on durability and legibility.  The dial takes inspiration from vintage cockpit clocks and pilot's watches which focused on large, legible numerals and high contrast.  The case is made from 6Steel, a material 6 times harder than standard stainless steel.

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.  



Durability and Legibility

6Steel is a proprietary case hardening process developed for Dekla. During the process, the 316L stainless steel case is heated in a mixture of carbon gases at low temperature to allow for the diffusion of atoms.

This intricate process is repeated over many hours and results in a watch case with a hardness rating of 1300 Hv, or 6 times the original hardness of normal stainless steel. 

The hardened watch case is then put through a vacuum chamber to increase corrosion resistance to sea water and sweat. This multi layering process makes 6Steel an ideal case material for sport and diving watches.

Just like the hardened case, the dial and hands are made in-house by Dekla. 

The overall design is inspired by vintage cockpit clocks that served as true navigational tools in the air.  The anchor numerals on the quarter hours along with the triangular marker at 12 allow for a quick read of the time, and the bold indices and hands contrast well against the black lacquered dial. 

The numerals, hour and minute hands, and markers have BGW9 SuperLuminova applied for a strong glow in low light environments.  This watch also features a sporty orange seconds hand which stands out, even from a distance. 




Important features of this watch include:

  • 6Steel case hardened to 1300Hv
  • Sapphire crystal with interior AR coating
  • Black lacquered dial
  • Screw down crown
  • White SuperLuminova BGW9 on hour and minute hands, markers (glows green)
  • SW200-1 automatic winding movement
  • Water resistant to 200 meters

This watch is fitted with a black leather Dekla strap with black stitching.
