We enjoy being able to discover smaller brands that bring something special to the market while also offering a high degree of construction quality. Dogfight is a new brand that hits the mark on both fronts. Dogfight watches honor the service and sacrifice of the early World War fighter pilots who laid it all on the line to serve their country and defend the freedom that we enjoy today. DOGFIGHT's Ace Collection is named after those pilots who deservingly earned the name of flying ace after dominating against enemy pilots during intense aerial combats. The Ace Collection is comprised of vintage styling of authentic pilot watches worn by the flying aces who ruled the skies during the World Wars. With a surgical grade stainless steel case and a fantastic, textured teal dial, this Ace DF0020 is ready to help win the war against boring watch designs. The 44mm case houses a reliable Miyota GP11 battery powered movement that manages the timekeeping function. Large silver, luminous Arabic numerals are evident at all the even-hour dial positions. A date window is evident at 3:00. The constantly running second hand for this Ace spins in the 6:00 subdial. The classically aviator-style hour and minute hands highlight design elements which also include a flighter plane logo just below 12:00 and a red star emblazoned on the crown. The case back of the Ace displays the inscription "Outstanding pilots are born, not grown". The Ace is carefully secured to the wrist with a very high quality, thick, genuine brown leather strap with white contrast stitching and a buckle. The case and strap together measure 10-3/8 inches in total length and will fit wrist sizes up to 8-3/4 inches.
The octagonal Dogfight presentation box contains the instruction manual plus paperwork for the 2-year International manufacturer's warranty. We've included original photos and a video of the model we are selling. If you have ANY questions regarding this watch, please drop us an email for a quick response.
About the Dogfight brand
The origin of the term DOGFIGHT, which refers to a close-proximity aerial battle between fighter aircrafts, can be traced to the years following World War I. The first written reference to the modern day usage of the words comes from Fly papers, by History of 24 squadron, in 1919. After the invention of the first airplanes for warfare, forward-firing machine guns were mounted on the fighter aircraft, which required the pilots to maneuver themselves behind the enemy aircraft. The aircraft battling for the rear position resembled dogs fighting and chasing to catch one another's tail, and therefore the term DOGFIGHT came about. Tactical and effective fighter maneuvers may depend on the advancement of aircraft, weapon and also specific combat situation. Pilots must react instinctively against the opponent's position, speed and elevation, while considering his aircraft's own turn radius and engine response rate. The pilot who secures the advantageous position will instantly hold the upper hand in the battle, applying extreme pressure against the opponent. When World War II broke out, pilots began to show off their Dogfighting tactics that they have been studying for a long time.
DOGFIGHT tells the story of pilots who wagered courageous battles in the sky during the World Wars. Embracing an unwavering faith, they fought against fear and ultimately dedicated their lives for peace and stability. DOGFIGHT pilots followed the rules and battle plans in fierce battlegrounds where no single mistake is allowed, all the while holding on to the integrity of respecting the sanctity of life. They were the greatest warriors of the age who put everything at stake for their comrades and loved ones. Today, we still honor those DOGFIGHT pilots, the true flying aces with THE GENTLE COURAGE.
