Introducing The UNDONE Aero Scientific 1940 - An Homage To The Weems Second-Setting Watch
For the aviator and vintage design enthusiast, UNDONE has created the Aero Scientific 1940 with an exclusive aged
dial specifically for The Rake & Revolution in a limited edition of 200 pieces. In our eternal pursuit of the
best value for our readers, the watch comes with both a leather strap and a stainless steel bracelet.
The UNDONE Aero Scientific 1940 does not only encapsulate the spirit of P.V.H. Weems, it also pays homage to the
original timepiece from the 1930’s and the important place it holds in the history of horology; it is a watch that
is true to its origins.
The watch features the additional crown at 2 o'clock which functions as a bezel lock, it is designed to clamp down
with just a twist of the crown. The wider bezel allows for larger fonts and printing; increasing legibility, while
also giving pilots a more accessible instrument to operate while wearing thick, leather flight gloves. True to its
vintage inspiration, the Aero Scientific 1940 features an exclusive aged dial for The Rake & Revolution which
mimics the feel of patina appearing after many years of wear on the wrist.
Three hands are aligned to three separate tracks for ease of legibility and accuracy of setting. The blued syringe
hour and minute hands are luminescent, where the minute hand lume perfectly aligns with the 5-minute markers,
allowing for readability and clarity throughout flight at night. At 40mm in diameter, the watch is a comfortable
size and the use of 316L stainless steel will insure durability without foregoing the vintage feel of the timepiece.
The nostalgic aviation watch is powered by the tried and trusted SII NH35A; a self-wind, hackable, workhorse
movement displaying time in a three-hand format, and the Aero Scientific 1940 is fitted with a screw-down
