For the first time, with Dark Spirit, the C-47 Skeleton case takes on a black PVD treatment, offering a dramatic counterpoint to its 5N rose gold coated movement and gold ring. The brand’s conceptual dexterity, technical competence, and longstanding links to the world of aviation are on full display with this limited edition.
The Dark Spirit offers a peek under the C-47’s hood with a skeletonised movement and updated stealth-black detailing. The name is taken from the 316L black PVD coating on its 42mm stainless-steel case. Each case is engraved with a serial number from 1 to 10/10. Its skeletonised, Swiss-made automatic movement can be admired through an anti-glare sapphire crystal on both the dial side and case back.
The dial side offers a clear reading of the hours, minutes, and central seconds, while the reverse presents another view of the automatic winding caliber STP 6-15 H6 and custom skeletonised rotor. The 5N rose gold coating of the automatic movement and ring offer sleek contrast to the Dark Spirit’s black case and black grid.
This timepiece is ready for action, with water-resistance up to 3 ATM and a hearty 44-hour power reserve. Dark Spirit comes delivered with two strap options that complete its dark persona, including a black calfskin strap and an extra black silicon band. Both straps feature a black PVD coated stainless steel 316L pin buckle engraved with the Tockr logo.
The C-47 Skeleton Dark Spirit will retail for US$2,700, but the 10-piece edition is available for a special pre-order price of US$1,899 for a limited time at Tockr.com.
