Fresh for the fall is the Altair, which is our first offering from the storied TriStar collection. The watch gets its name from the star, which is most notably a part of the “Summer Triangle”. The Summer Triangle is visible in late autumn, and is a formation that showcases three bright stars— all of which come from separate constellations.
The Altair is a perfect example of how well retro-styling can blend together with classic looks. The watch itself features a date, day of the week sub-register, and 24-hour sub-register, in an identical layout to our newly released 2nd Generation Defender series. Its sunburst dial is augmented by Roman numeral markings at the four axes and brilliant spear-shaped hands. It is presented in a vintage-inspired, 39.5mm cushion case, complete with wide lugs and a fully-polished finish. The case is rated at 30m of water resistance, and the watch is powered by the Orient caliber F6B22 movement, which is automatic, hand-winding, and hacking. It is important to note that until now, all TriStar watches were strictly automatic-only.
The Altair is available in eight different colorways in either gold tone or stainless steel and on bracelet or leather strap.
