The SIDUNA Expedition chronograph celebrates the golden industrial age, which gave significant achievements in the Nordics and prompted several scientific explorations around the globe.
Based on a modified ETA 7753, the Expedition chronograph features a machine turned dial pattern, tempered steel hands, and a pulsometer scale that allows to measure more than ten different units.
Based on a 1972 military standard produced in limited edition for pilots of the Saab 37, on of the most advanced jet fighters of its time, the SIDUNA Aviation chronograph blends aviation History with watchmaking tradition.
SIDUNA's rendition is produced in a numbered edition and has been upgraded with a sapphire crystal and a custom self-winding calibre built by Alfred Rochat & Fils on top of the ETA 7750.
Made by SIDUNA for Techné (one of America's favourite military watch) the General Issue MIL-W-3818B is based on an iconic US Army design from 1962 that was intended for the harshest environments.
Fitted with a self-winding Swiss Soprod P024 movement, the MIL-W-3818B features a clean layout with 12 hours numerals and military time, a case and screw-down crown in austenitic stainless steel water resistant to 20 bar (static 200 metres / 666 feet) and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
