Inspired by the highly sought after yet extremely exclusive 1950s Blancpain chronograph, the newly released Blancpain Air Command Flyback Chronograph offers two distinct timing modes: a chronograph with flyback function and a countdown bezel. The mid-1950s Air Command is likely the rarest Blancpain watch of its era. The New Air Command joins the eponymous collection while fully reflecting the spirit of the vintage pilot’s watch that came before it. In addition to the flyback feature and the countdown rotating bezel, the Air Command also has a tachymeter scale that indicates ground speeds, a 12-hour counter, and a 30-minute counter with three-minute increment markings.

For the 42.5mm case, Blancpain is offering a choice of grade 23 titanium or red gold. The rarely used titanium comes to life with the polished and satin-finished surfaces that Blancpain applied to the case of the Air Command. Both choices work particularly well with the satin blue sunburst dial and matching ceramic bezel. The blue dial highlights the hands and markers that are highlighted in Super-LumiNova which helps heighten legibility, making it optimal for both day and night viewing. The Blancpain Air Command Flyback Chronograph features a glass box sapphire crystal, referencing the strong aesthetic element of the 1950s models. One can admire the Air Command Flyback Chronograph’s movement through the sapphire insert in the caseback. The manufacture caliber F388B runs at 5Hz, allowing to measure the elapsed time in 1/10th of a second increments, with a column wheel and vertical clutch for precise chronograph operation.
