Based on the unique Halda Concept, and featuring interchangeable modules, the Halda Race Pilot Octane delivers a host of racing-orientated design features and it is fitted with a suitable engine – a self winding movement by prestigious Zenith. This timepiece has been put to extreme tests and fine-tuned to perfection by the Halda team.
For a high strength-to-weight ratio, the Race Pilot’s case and bezel are made of Titanium. To keep that luxurious racing look they are coated with black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon). DLC is a nanocomposite coating that has unique properties like diamond’s natural low friction, high hardness, and high corrosion resistance. These attributes make it ideal for engine components such as fuel injection systems, valve trains and pistons but also in watchmaking for the same reasons.
The watch is available in two colors, one with white details in the dial and a monochrome one but only 25 pieces of each will be produced. The watches are made to order and assembled entirely by hand in the Halda watch factory just outside Stockholm. Delivery of the first timepieces will take place later this year.
