This watch was designed in memory of R.J. Mitchell, designer of the legendary Supermarine Spitfire Fighter aircraft. Summed up in a word, Mitchell’s legacy is ‘simplicity’, or as he put it “if anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can´t understand it, take it from me: it´s all balls.” In his spirit, this watch is simple, straightforward and timeless.Loyal to all Torgoen watches signature, the T16 has a clean look dial, ergonomically designed for ease of read. Digits and markers can be viewed clearly even in the dark. The chronograph movement is made by ETA, a highly regarded Swiss movement manufacturer, able to measure times between two events with a resolution of 1/10 of a second and is also splits and laps two time measurements, and the counter measures time up to 30 minutes. Besides this great and well known movement, the T16 offers a high grade (316L) solid stainless steel case with a screw-down back, a super hardened (K1) mineral crystal, a double “O” ring crown that gives the T16 its water resistance protection up to 100 meters. This dramatic timepiece is worthy of Mitchell’s memory. Our T16 earned its worldwide popularity after in his interview to the Wall Street Journal, Richard Branson told the reporter he wears a model of this series since he thinks it is "pretty". Movement: ETA Cal. G10.212. The movement of the watch was made by ETA SA, which belongs to the SWATCH group – the largest watch company in world. Other than the movement, the assembly and the entire QA process were performed in Switzerland as well. This watch comes with a 4-year warranty, backed by our US, UK & AU warranty centers, and can be returned to us free of charge within 30 days after purchase.
