Orient FAB II / Pilots of the Smoke Squadron / #MPTTC002

Very much a Limited Edition watch. Limited to 777 pieces, the FAB Piloto solar chronograph is the second Orient model launched in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Esquadrilha da Fumaça. Focused on the skills of 7 men piloting 7 aircraft, on this 70th anniversary, the solar chronograph brings a little of the pilots’ aeronautical skills – like a slide rule on the rim.
Tried to keep it as close to the original as possible. The only things I changed was to code the Chrono with a dual function. It acts as 2nd second hand in normal mode and then chrono in stopwatch mode. I just decided it was such a cool looking hand that it was a bit of a waste to just park it at 12 o’clock.
Also no images of this in dim mode, so I just very much made it up as I went along.
Built entirely from scratch in GIMP and assembled and coded in WatchMaker.
