Description
The overall style is contemporary. Exterior polishing is excellent. Click on Photo gallery button to see its beautiful outlines.
  • Tachymeter bezel

  • Color of dial appears black.

  • Luminous hour, minute hands and hour markers

  • White small hands at three sub-dials

  • AM/PM & date window at 3 o’clock

  • The case back is engraved with an image of spacecraft orbiting around the earth. 

The long chronographic second is located at center. It has a luminous rhomb. Don’t be confused it with second hand. The second-hand sub-dial is located at 9 o’clock.

At 6 o’clock is cumulative 12-hours sub-dial. Hour markers are white.

At 12 o’clock is cumulative 45-minutes sub-dial, divided into 9 blocks each 5 minutes. The 6th block is in blue. The 9th block is in green. Unlike others counting 30-minutes, Fiyta in-house aerospace chronograph is designed to count 45 minutes. It is 28800 high frequency and has hacking function.

The surface of 12-hours and 45-minutes sub-dials is not smooth. Both sub-dials are decorated with sunken caves as if they look like the uneven surface of a planet no man has set foot on, indulging yourself into wild imagination.

  • Upper right button is pressed to start / stop chronograph function. The button is decorated by a black rubber cushion on top.

  • Lower right button is pressed to re-set after you have stopped chronograph function. The button is decorated by a black rubber cushion on top.

  • Middle crown at position 0 can be turned clock-wise to hand-wind manually this automatic movement. Pull out crown one click to positon 1 to quick-set date. Pull out crown two clicks to position 2 to adjust time.

  • The crown is screw-down design. Unlike the majority of others that screw down by turning clockwise, this crown is screwed down by turning counter-clockwise. Please make sure the crown is screwed down or closed while wearing to prevent water and dust.

As of today January 18th 2018, there are three space watch makers – Omega, Fortis, and Fiyta is the 3rd.  No other companies have built wristwatches for astronauts traveling in the outer space. Official manufacturer suggested retail price is $1030. In order to introduce this model to international customers, promotional price here is only $555. With $555 you can only travel in your hometown and stay in motel for two or three nights. By owning this watch it will accompany all your endeavors to stroll in the boundless realm!

FAQ

Q. Hi, How long is the bracelet? It is not clear from the description.

A. The circumference of both Fiyta aeronautics chronograph (one is limited titanium, the other is stainless steel) metal bracelets have the same length, about 8.8 inches (22.3cm). Length can be adjusted by taking off links. It is also recommended changing metal bracelet to a thick-padded leather band, also looks very cool, and reduce weight feel on your wrist.

Customer Reviews
Rating Great watch with an inspiring history
 
I’m very happy with this purchase. It’s a solid, high quality and soulful watch with a rich history and inspiring story to it. Finishing- The case finishing is excellent. The dial is beautiful and looks better than in pictures. The colors really pop. The textured asteroid chrono dials are a fun touch and adds to the character of this watch while reminding you of its story. The staged rocket hands are very unique and also reminds you of the watch's story. The bezel rotates, which seems pointless for a tachymeter bezel, but it’s useful to me to use as a time keeping tool, like with a regular dive bezel. The steel band is good and feels substantial. Chronograph- Chrono pusher action is solid and feels the same as other high quality 7750 lever chronographs. The pushers are substantial and solid feeling and has a nice rubber texture at the buttons. Movement- It's a high beat movement of the workhorse 7750 type. The typical 7750 rotor spin centrifugal force is there, and adds even more to the character of this watch. It’s been very accurate so far. The top chrono dial counts 45 minutes instead of the typical 30 minutes. The day of week is replaced by an AM/PM indicator (for space use). As the 7750 is already a time proven design, and the hand-wind version of this watch’s movement was certified for astronauts, I’m expecting it to be reliable and robust, as well as easy to maintain and service over the decades. Feel- This watch truly feels like it has soul to it. The rotor spin that makes it feel alive, the functional design reminds you of its rich history and story, and the thoughtful and fun design details combine make this watch very interesting. While it wraps and fits the wrist well, it’s not a light watch (comparable to other medium-large steel sport chronos), and its size and height might not work for those with thinner wrists. The colors and design are very original and makes you want to keep staring at it.
