Manufactured for the pilots of Japan's legendary air force during World War II, the Seikosha Tensoku-Dokei ("Celestial Watch") follows the traditional requirements for pilot's watches of the 1940s: a splendid dial with high readability, no frills, a large onion-shaped crown that can be operated with gloves on, and a very generous 48 mm case to ensure resistance and ease of reading in any extreme conditions.
Nicknamed the "Kamikaze", because of the tragic fate reserved for many of these watches and their owners, it is easy to understand the incredible rarity of finding an example, even in poor condition.
This timepiece is a splendid piece of history that we have the pleasure of offering in perfect museum condition, and is therefore an event of unquestionable uniqueness.
