45 mm hand-wound
This modern interpretation of the original Flying Dutchman has a small second and a mechanical movement in a large stainless steel case.
The dial stands out because of its legibility. Still, the design is restrained because of the intelligent use of symmetric lines.
The elegant Breguet-style hands are hand-painted with a generous amount of Super-LumiNova, which gives a remarkable lume in the dark.
ETA calibre 6498-1
The engine of this watch is the Swiss 6498-1 movement. This is one of the oldest movements still in production and could be called the essence of a Swiss movement.
This hand-wound calibre was originally developed for pocket watches by the (now defunct) Swiss movement maker Unitas. This name is still sometimes used for the movement.
The company was taken over by ETA, which has continued to develop the movement in order to make it make it compliant with modern-day requirements.
The finishing of the movement used by Pellikaan timing is elegant, with traditional Swiss decorations like the Côtes de Genève and blued screws. The movement is very nicely visible through the glass caseback.
