Chotovelli Reinventing Military Pilot Watches with Kickstarter Launch

November 02 02:45 2018
It’s hard to be innovative while making a vintage pilot watch; those two words don’t even fit in the same sentence. The reason for that is the most well-known Pilot watch manufacturers in Switzerland and Germany are doing it in the same for way for over 80 years now. All the models manufactured by them feature same traditional features including mechanical or automatic movement, big and massive crown, blasted steel cases and extreme legibility dials.

Belgium – Nov 1, 2018 – Leading Italian watchmaker Chotovelli & Figli is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its brand new pilot watch (also known as Flieger) at an incredible price point. The new watch line is called “1919” and will be introduced on Kickstarter in couple of months.

“We are soon to introduce the most innovative vintage pilot watch collection at an unbelievable price in the next few months. Up until today, if you were looking to get a decent automatic pilot watch on the market, you had to spend about 300-500 $. But our upcoming flier series is going to change all that and we are going to do it in just one-third of the price!” stated Ilan Chotovelli.

The basic cost reduction is in the state of the art Mecha quartz movement which moves and acts just like an automatic timepiece. For most watch connoisseurs, it’s a known fact that a quartz movement is more reliable and precise than an automatic one. It needs much less up-keep and maintenance and if the movement fails completely- in one in a million cases- you can easily replace it for fraction of the price of getting a mechanical watch repaired by a decent watchmaker.

“So, to put it simply, you are getting the reliability and precision of a quartz watch but the look and feel of an automatic and all of that at below $100 mark. It’s definitely a winning deal for pilot watch connoisseurs”, Ilan Chotovelli added in, who have co-founded Chotovelli & Figli with his sister Chotovelli Tami.

Ilan & Tami are seasoned watchmakers who belong to an esteemed family of three generation watchmakers from Torino. The Chotovelli family is highly reputed in international watchmaking industry for superior craftsmanship, amazing know-how on the entire process and incredible eye for detail. Chotovelli & Figli was launched in 2005 with an exclusive Military Pilot Watch collection, backed by the same premier workmanship their family is known for.

Speaking on the launch of their company, Ilan mentioned about their mission to introduce high quality military and aviator pilot watches at moderate prices.

“We noticed there was a huge demand in the market for exclusive yet budget-friendly aviator pilot watches which are otherwise usually quite expensive. The exorbitant rates prevent many pilot watch connoisseurs to sport their favorite timepiece and we wanted to change that for better. Our main mission is to create awe-inspiring watches that will be exclusive by design yet competitive in regards to price. Our upcoming vintage pilot watch collection duly echoes the same ethos. We are confident we will be able to exceed your expectations with our latest collection.”

Chotovelli & Figli is bustling with a vast and versatile gallery of highly affordable yet high end watch collections. Customers can choose from a wide range of Aviator Pilot Watches, Military Aviation Watches, Vintage Pilot Watches and Gauge Watches. For those who want a bigger and bolder dial, there are Big Pilot Watches to choose from. The company also offers a special series of Dashboard Pilot Watches.

“Despite a reasonable price point, we are extremely particular about the quality and design of our watches. Our timepieces are made from finest of materials like high grade Stainless Steel 316 L, hardened anti-reflective Sapphire glass, Italian calf leather straps and so on.”

Added to watches, Chotovelli & Figli also extends a large and trendy collection of aviator sunglasses and watch straps.
