The NAV-01 Chronograph strives to recall an era of aviation before digital glass displays became common place in aircraft cockpits. This watch takes us back a few decades in aviation history when things were a little simpler and analogue instruments were the only interface between the Pilot and the aircraft.
Our New NAV-01 Chronograph continues with our heritage of Instrument Inspired Watches. In 1990 Trintec created a new concept in aviation watches when we introduced the FIRST Instrument Inspired Aviator Watch. Our very first watch featured the design elements of an Aircraft Altimeter, something no other watch company had ever done. Our new NAV-01 Chronograph continues with our tradition of unique Instrument Inspired watches.
The shape and style of the watch case draws heavily on the standard Aircraft Instrument casing. This style of instrument emerged decades ago, but can still be found in many aircraft cockpits today.
The NAV-01 is produced from solid 316-L Stainless Steel and is offered in either a Sand Blasted Stainless Steel finish or a Black PVD finish. The watch is powered by a reliable Miyota OS-20 Quartz Chronograph Movement. This movement features three sub dials which display running seconds, a 24-hour display and a 60-minute counter. We have experience using this movement since 2010 and have found this to be one of the most reliable and dependable movements available.
The dial layout was particularly designed to be very easy to read at a glance with large easy to read numerals and is equally complimented with matching vintage styled hour and minute hands. All numerals and major indexes are fully lumed with High Quality Japanese Luminova for great night visibility.
This watch is supplied with a high qualty Sapphire Crystal and is AR coated on the inside of the Crystal for better clarity and visibility. This watch is fitted with a screw down crown and case back which allows the watch to be water resistant to 10 ATM.
A durable 22 MM rubber strap is provided which can easily be replaced with any one of a number of readily available after market watch straps. Solid wrist pins with real screws are provided which allows the strap to be removed or replaced with just the use of a jewellers screw driver.

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
Having successfully funded and delivered on seven previous Kickstarter Campaigns we are fully aware of the challenges that present themselves during the fulfillment phase of a project.
Having also backed numerous campaigns, we have experienced both sides of funding process. We are fully aware of the frustration backers feel when things don’t go as promised especially when compounded by a lack of communication. We promise to keep our backers up to date through out the Campaign and especially during the fulfillment process.
Trintec Industries Inc. has been in business since 1984 manufacturing and producing aviation inspired clocks and watches for more than 30 years.
We will be using a company that has a proven track record with us and a 20 year history in the watch manufacturing business.
Even so, there can always be hiccups when it comes to production and on time delivery is always the biggest challenge. We always insist on approving final samples before the production run goes into full swing to try to catch any issues that we are not satisfied with and solve any problems before delivery.
If our campaign is successful we will keep all our backers up to date with the production and delivery schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
