The Schallmauer (which stands for ‘sound barrier’ in German) immortalizes the aviator watch design from the 50s and 60s by turning them into contemporary evergreen classics. Designed with better materials, durable construction, clearer graphics, and more precise mechanisms on the inside, the Schallmauer is a modern timepiece for the modern jetsetter. Its highly visible dial features large, legible numerics against a matte watch-face for maximum visibility. The watch’s hands and numerics come coated with a layer of Japanese Nemoto LumiNova for extended visibility in low-light settings, and two subdials and a date window in customized red color give you all the information you need at a glance.
The Schallmauer embraces its “Made in Germany” tag pretty seriously, with an impeccably designed outer and precisely assembled inner components, featuring a customized Citizen Miyota 6S21 movement. The watch comes with a 316L Stainless Steel casing that has a scratch-resistant sapphire glass (with two coats of anti-reflective film) sitting on the top, an unidirectional rotating 120-clicks bezel, a handy crown with stamped logo and a bas-relief design of a fighter-jet from the 60s along with a bespoke serial number engraved on the back. The Schallmauer comes limited to just 999 pieces per color, and watch aficionados can choose from a variety of classic watch colors complimented with the genuine top-grain Horween leather straps and to opt in an additional well-suited woven-nylon NATO straps!

Schallmauer – Modernized Classic Pilot Watch
The Schallmauer is a tribute to the fascinating chronographs worn by pilots of the 50s and 60s. With its 42.5mm case made from 316L surgical stainless steel, the soft, oiled leather strap and the legendary two-counter chronograph dial, the Schallmauer watch seamlessly continues the exciting history of the aviation tradition.
Black Beast – Stainless steel case (DLC coated – the case back as well) with black aluminum bezel inlay, black dial (refined with LumiNova® SG2200), white hands, black Horween leather with white stitching and DLC coated buckle.
Heritage – Stainless steel case with black bezel inlay, black dial with silver totalisers (refined with LumiNova® Beige), white hands (black on totalisers), light brown vintage Horween leather strap with white stitching and steel buckle.
Horizon – Stainless steel case with blue aluminum bezel inlay, blue dial (refined with LumiNova® SG2200), white hands, dark brown Horween leather with white stitching and steel buckle.
The matted dial of the Schallmauer watch is characterized by its clear numbers and the central arrangement of its large totalizers. This ensures optimum readability. 12 ball indices stylishly complete the dial of our watch. The contrasting red date gives the dial, the face of the watch, a special character.
The straight, clear hands emphasize this striking impression and ensure perfect orientation – even at night. The Japanese NEMOTO finish guarantees enormous luminescence.
At night the dial lights up with the Luminous LumiNova SG2200 (on Black Beast and Horizon) and beige (on Heritage).
