    Mitchell Timepieces Raider

    Iíve been seeing this pop up on some Facebook groups - and must say I really quite like it. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...er-pilot-watch
    *
    I bought one of their more modern watches, the B2, last August and think itís very good. So when this campaign goes live Iím tempted to go for it.
    *
    Itís a homage to the A10 watch that I understand was issued to the American military in WWII and comes in white and black dial versions, with the option of Steel or Bronze for both.
    *
    The white has a full lume dial - and as I donít own a watch like that it is this one, in SS, that I think Iíll go for.
    *
    Movement is a Miyota 9039 - my only experience with this make is the 9015 Iíve got in the Newmark 71 and I have to say Iím blown away by that - it averages just +0.7 secs per day.
    *
    I think Kickstarter costs will be $315 but of course thereís tax and postage to go on top of that. However, I think itís a good price.

    Seems to be an lot of watch for the money.
    The original A11 is one of my favourite watches and itís nice to see a few companies producing a homage to the type.

    Interesting. Would be nice to see black painted hands, given the extreme contrast and legibility of the dial.

    Well just in case anyone is interested, although I pre-ordered mine in March, from a post they put on FaceBook I believe they do have a limited number available now.

    I agree - they obviously had the silvered hands for the Black Dial - and although you can see them OK'ish against the White Dial, black outlined ones would have been better.

    However, when you go into an area that is comparatively 'dull' then the dial does begin to glow so you get a silhouette effect - which makes the identification of where the hands are a lot more easier.
