Limited Edition: Exclusive built to order pieces starting at $2,500 in stainless steel and $18,000 in reprocessed WW2 fighter aircraft blackened steel and 18k solid gold details.

The Black Member is an exclusive modern classic design inspired by the 1940's and pays homage to the amazing fuselage art put on the fighter planes. During WW2 this created a strong bond between the pilot and his flying machine and also brought good-luck and protection to the airmen.

Designed and assembled in Providence RI using a rare combination of WW2 1940's-50's inspired mechanical movement parts combined with precision milled cases out of solid blocks of stainless steel and encapsulated in sapphire crystal. Designed to preserve the same functional characteristics of an every day WW2 era manual and self-winding mechanical watch. Built to provide many more years of durability without ever needing batteries. The repurposed parts and hand built nature of each piece means no two watches are exactly the same and each is individually numbered and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
