Quick preview of the Eagle due to launch in a few weeks! Stay tuned for the full lineup and details very soon!

The skeletonised multipart case is CNCed in ti and hardened which I know you guys love. This unique case made the original eagle stand out but also made it super thick at 16mm. This new titanium case is only 11mm thick and 40mm in dia which wears super well on most wrists.

The dial is also all new, inspired by the vintage type B pilot dials unlike the type A style of the original eagle. This teal dial has tons of depth with a gloss enamel coating that makes the printing seem to float above the dial.

Finally the turbine rotor is one of my favorite rotors so far, fully Swiss made by LJP to match the G100 movement with anthracite coating.

I'll be disappointed if this one doesn't have a fitted bracelet option. I have the original and doing a strap again is kind of a let down for me.

I really like this watch but I emailed Elshan regarding a bracelet version and he stated that because of the lug design(skeletonized), unfortunately it can't have an integrated bracelet. I would rather it did.

He told me the same thing, but I disagreed with him. IMO a fitted bracelet did not have to be an integrated one and standard fitted lugs would have worked and looked fine. It's his vision and I respect that with any designer. I can only ask why.

I agree.
 
Hey guys!
Here's a quick preview of the Eagle due for release very soon!

The Eagle pilots watch is our modern take on the traditional pilot style, and an update to the first ‘Eagle’ design launched back in 2016. The first eagle was a chunky beast at 16mm, this is much thinner at only 11. It features the unique skeletonised midcase and lugs made fully from titanium and hardened to 1200Hv. All of this topped off with a lovely 'box' shaped sapphire crystal. You'll find a soigne grade LJP G100 with anthracite coating and custom rotor all visible on the back.

There’s 5 variants with the last being a cerakote white and gunmetal case with full lume dial. The teal dial has a sunburst finish with double fume effect, and its covered with a gloss enamel to give it a brilliant look. The carbon dial uses material from ‘Fatcarbon’ which features streaks of gold inlaid with carbon fiber. The crowd favorites of aventurine and meteorite are also available.
The Eagle countdown page will be up in a few days and there should be quite a few YT reviews lined up so do stay tuned! Unfortunately the cerakote is done abit late so there's no YT reviews for that.

Quick Specs
Size: 39mm Dia, 11mm thick, 48mm
Case: Ti with 1200Hv
Movt: LJP G100 Soigné with custom rotor
Crystal: 'Box' shaped Sapphire front and flat sapphire back
WR: 100m with screw down crown
Lume: Raised BGW9 indices and C3 printing
Strap: FKM Rubber with textured surface and white ‘pilot’ style stitching
Prices start at $799

The 40mm was the original plan but the case had to come down in size a bit to 39mm to keep the L2L at 48mm

here’s a quick one on my skinny 6.3” wrist

I don't see how a bracelet can't be made. Basically just have the end link the same shape as the lugs with the cut out. It would still attach at the same holes. If that's too hard, even a completely solid end link would look fine from the side.
 
LJP G100 used will have a phantom position

Unfortunately the lug design wouldn’t allow for a nice integration with the endlinks

I really like this version of the watch. I also wish there could have been a bracelet. The phantom position is not a deal breaker but it does push my decision to a no at this tyme. Also the case size being 39mm and not 40mm. I have not gone below 39mm as of yet but again it helps in my backing out. Still a nice watch over all.
 
This isn't meant to sway the decision of anyone either way. Watches with thinner bezels and bigger dials tend to "wear larger". IMO this one should have as much wrist presence as a 40mm would.

https://teddybaldassarre.com/blogs/watches/watch-sizes

Sometimes you’ll put a watch on, knowing the stated case size, and be surprised by how much smaller (or in some cases larger) it looks on the wrist than expected. One reason for this is likely the dial-to-bezel ratio. In other words, a larger bezel (such as the unidirectional rotating bezel on a dive watch), can have the optical illusory effect of making the dial it frames look smaller. Conversely, a thinner bezel, like the ones on minimalist dress watches like the Junghans Max Bill (above) or Nomos Tangente, which have been described as "practically bezel-less," can have the opposite effect of making the dial appear wider and more expansive.
 
I get it brother. I will contemplate and see what happens. There are many watches that I can get at that price roughly and I budgeted myself at that range for something. Not that I "need" anything.
 
Good looking watch but with a ghost position at that price a no go for me
 
I'm not a fan of ghost positions myself. I would have rather seen the La Joux-Perret G101 no date used instead of the LJP-G100 date, they both have 68 hours power reserve. If he had used the Miyota 9000 series it would have been similar to the choice of the 9039 no date and the 9015.

The pricing on the other hand is really good. Many trinkets using the same movement prices start from around $1,000 up to $2,500 +.

Below are some models using the LJP G101 and LJP G-100

The Eagle 2 Takes to the Sky​

Artic Eagle
The Eagle was first launched in 2016 as a daring take on the traditional pilot's watch. We are excited to reintroduce this model almost 8 years later with a host of new advancements and improvements.

The sleek multi-part case is the highlight of the Eagle, constructed entirely in titanium and hardened to withstand any abuse you can throw at it. Inside, the LJP G100 is a reliable movement with an amazing 68hr power reserve. A 'turbine' styled rotor is also fully visible from the sapphire caseback.

The multilayered dial is our take on the 'Type B' dial of vintage flieger watches. The aventurine dial which looks like a starry night sky and an actual meteorite from space are perfect materials for a watch meant for the skies.​
The Eagles take off on the 8th of Feb at 11pm Singapore time. Do check out the launch page for more info and you'll also find a countdown timer on the page.​

THE EAGLE​

The first Eagle was a pilot's watch released in 2016 that was unlike any other. We are excited to introduce a successor that is sleek yet packed with the latest technologies in materials and manufacturing. This ensures that the Eagle stands up to the rigors of both the cockpit and your everyday adventures.

The Eagle's intricate multi-part case design is made from lightweight Titanium that has been hardened to 1200HV. A honeycomb engraved midcase is enclosed in a skeletonised lug structure. This complex construction and sleek outer surfaces pays homage to the latest fighter jets.
The first Eagle design featured the 'Type A' dial and the Eagle 2 offers something different with 'Type B' inspired pilot's dial. Large, fully lumed numerals offer excellent legibility at all times. A thick 'box' shaped sapphire crystal completes this aviator's timepiece much like the canopy of a cockpit.

Lug to Lug Length: 48mm
Thickness: 11mm without crystal
Case: Titanium with sandblasted and polished surfaces, 1200HV Hardened Coating

THE LA JOUX PERRET 'ENGINE'​

Powering the Eagle is the new LJP G100 customised to our exact requirements. This movement is made by La Joux Perret, a prestigious Swiss watch movement company situated within La Chaux-de-Fonds. They are known for producing high end complications such as tourbillons used in the Mirage, split seconds, grande dates, and even jumping seconds hands complications.

The G100 movement features an exceptional 68 hours of power reserve when fully wound. The rotor is made from tungsten, a dense material that we have sculpted in the form of a jet engine's turbine. The entire movement and rotor has been coated an anthracite grey color as well.
