Reproduction of the ”Type-B” used by the Germany Air Force.

The design motif is based on the “Type-B” (also known as B Uhren), which was developed and actually used by the German Luftwaffe as a navigator for bombers during World War II. A typical watch would display large Arabic numerals from 1 to 12, however, this watch is designed with a large seconds display from 05 to 55. Because there is a reason.
At that time, it was necessary for bombers to know the exact location of their targets by means of reconnaissance aircraft in advance of carrying out air strikes. But reconnaissance itself was often done at night, so even in the dark, accurate elapsed time and paths had to be recorded down to the second. That is to say, the seconds display has been enlarged for easy viewing, giving priority to seconds-based measurements. The case size was also quite large, exceeding 50 mm in diameter.
Therefore, the watch is originally designed with a center seconds hand (the second hand is coaxial with the hour and minute hands). However, in Outline, since it uses the same Seagull manual-winding movement as the British military type, it is arranged in the same small seconds specification as the previous model to add accents to the design.However, the dial is not black, as in the previous model, but a smoky green gradation with a sunray finish, adding a modern touch.

The watch brand “OUTLINE” has been created by Yoshimasa Kikuchi, who has worked on numerous watch magazines such as “POWER Watch”, “LowBEAT”, and “TIME Gear”. The brand was launched by Kikuchi himself to create fashionable watches that can be used for many years.
Although not an antique watch itself, the brand was created with the intention of cherishing the atmosphere of the 1940’s to 1960’s, the golden age of mechanical watches, and to provide something that people can enjoy the taste of that era in their daily use. The brand name “OUTLINE” means “outline or synopsis. We are developing such watches in small lots in a small way.
