The Dutch Original
Watches have always been an obsession for Hubert Pellikaan. He spent years and years to find the perfect watch.
And when he couldn’t find it, he decided to spend even more years to create the perfect watch for himself.
And this is it, the Flying Dutchman.
In the press he the watch was hailed as ‘a victory for self-will’, and ‘the unthinkable’.
The watch combines seemingly contrary values. Elegant and robust at the same time. Classical yet modern. Distinctive but functional.
The proportions of this watch are traditional, but distinct at the same time.
This subtle variant of the Flying Dutchman has a date window and a central second and a minimalist style.
Design, technique and usability are core values of every watch by Pellikaan timing.
The dial is very legible but still feels understated thanks to the very clever use of the lines typical of a sector dial.
The Breguet-shaped hands are generously painted with Super-LumiNova which lights up brightly in the dark.
ETA caliber 2892-A2
Watch enthousiasts will immediately recognize this movement as one of the most reliable and robust automatic movements from Switzerland.
It is also a very accurate movement, which is why it has been used for decades by even the most famous brands.
Still, standard is nog good enough for Hubert, so some finishing and regulation of the movement is done by Pellikaan timing.
