The dial takes its inspiration from the instrument panel of the plane with clear, bold hands and numerals as well as detailed and intricate markers. The white dial is made of enamel to create the warm beauty that echoes the feel and texture of the materials used in a 1920’s aircraft.
The “R” emblem on the tail of Savoia S-21 is displayed at the six o’clock position. This coloring is also subtly integrated into this watch with its white dial, red seconds hand and green power reserve indicator.
The watches are offered in a special presentation box with an alternative strap. One strap is in the vibrant red color of the fuselage of Savoia S-21 with stitching in red, white and green, and the other is in black with the same colored stitching.
The watch incorporates Spring Drive Caliber 5R65 which has an accuracy of ±1 second per day and a power reserve of 72 hours. There is a power reserve indicator at the eight o’clock position and a date window at three o’clock.
The beauty of the movement is clearly visible through the sapphire crystal case back, as is the Porco Rosso symbol. On the case back itself is engraved, in Italian, a famous quote from the film, “A pig that does not fly is just a pig.” * In an actual product, the case back direction might be different from the photograph.
The crown is specially engraved with the emblem of Porco Rosso and his plane’s name graces the case.
