Product Details

Vintage Inspired

The Eza AirFighter Black is a modern take on a traditional German pilot’s watch with a dial designed for maximum legibility.  

Form and Function

The dial of the Eza AirFighter Black features several key characteristics common in WWII era pilot’s watches, which were focused on simplicity and readability.  The hour and minute hands are sword-shaped, bordered in light blue, filled in with white, and coated in SuperLuminova, creating an excellent contrast against the black dial. 

Another hallmark of WWII pilot’s watches is the triangular marker at 12 accompanied by two dots on each side. With no date window, the dial is further cleared from any distractions that might impede legibility in the cockpit.

The case is made from 316L stainless steel and has a brushed and polished finish.  The case back is engraved with the Eza logo and features a partial engraving of the mechanical movement inside.  This watch is water resistant to 50 meters, and the sapphire crystal features an interior AR coating and an engraved logo.

Quality Control Testing

The Eza AirFighter Black undergoes a rigorous set of quality control tests in two countries.

The first set of tests are performed at the atelier in Pforzheim, Germany.  There, the watch undergoes a visual test, a water resistance check, and a final technical check on the movement.  Each watch leaves the atelier with a unique printout of the movement timing and performance, which is adjusted in-house in six positions.

Next, the watch is shipped to Renens, Switzerland, and undergoes one final inspection before packaging and shipment are completed.

Important features of this watch include:
  • Sapphire crystal with interior AR coating
  • Engraved case back
  • 316L stainless steel case
  • Movement adjusted in six positions
  • SuperLuminova on hands and hours (glows green)
  • Water resistant to 50 meters

The Eza AirFighter Black ships on black calf leather strap.

Eza is a German watch brand born in the West German capital of watchmaking and jewelry - Pforzheim.

Pforzheim is a small city in Baden-Wurttemberg, and is not only the home of many German watch brands today but historically was among the most important cities worldwide for the production of mechanical watch movements, cases, and other watch components.

Pforzheim has also been called the "entrance to the Black Forest"  due to its location in southwest Germany. The town is mostly known for its historical jewelry and watchmaking industry, which dates back more than 250 years.

The city bears the name "Goldstadt" (Gold City) in Germany, and today the city hosts a leading German watchmaking school and technical museum where interesting artifacts and machinery from the history of west German watchmaking are on display.

Watches bearing the name Eza were originally manufactured in Pforzheim by local manufacturers, one of the most important of whom was Hermann Becker.  Becker and his family produced watch cases, dials and ebouches, including the in-house calibres 312 and 313.

During the 20th century Eza produced a variety of watches and complications, but were most known for divers watches.  Unfortunately Eza was the victim of the "quartz crisis" as were many other watch and movement companies in Pforzheim - by 1979 all remaining 48 employees lost their jobs.

The modern history of Eza begins in 2016 when master watchmaker Adriaan Trampe wanted to create watches with a vintage look in a modern way.  Adriaan took control of the Eza brand and decided to stick to the original traditions important to the brand - mechanical movements only and assembly in Pforzheim, Germany.

Eza currently offers three primary collections:  AirFighter, Sealander, and Vintage.  WatchBuys is proud to have been selected by Eza as their exclusive North American distributor, and we are pleased to support German watchmaking in Pforzheim.
