Amid unforgiving conditions and dark nights, renowned adventure photographer Paul Zizka captures the beauty of the universe. The new Engineer III StarLight is built per his specifications for such daring exploration. Bold numerals powered by micro gas tubes in 3 color options for unmatched night reading prowess along with anti-magnetic protection to 80K A/m, the StarLight is designed for all explorers who venture to remote landscapes and connect to the wonders of the world.
Limited to 1,000 pieces, the Engineer III StarLight is now available at an exclusive pre-order price starting from USD 899 until 23 May 2018
Clear and instant time reading is paramount, especially when exploring perilous terrains in the middle of the night. The StarLight radiates with micro gas tubes formed numerals and illuminates the darkness, while the hour, minute and second hands feature gas tubes for a harmoniously bright style. During long journeys of photographic discovery – when day quickly fades to night – Paul Zizka relies on the automatic luminosity of micro gas tubes and exploration never misses a moment.
POWERFUL ANTI-MAGNETIC PROTECTION TO 80,000 A/M.
Magnetism is everywhere, in everyday life and high above in the cosmos so masterfully captured by Paul Zizka. While magnetism plays a vital role in our Earth and beyond, it poses as a threat to mechanical timepieces. Around its movement, the StarLight features a mu-metal shield comprised of nickel, iron, copper and molybdenum. The shield is capable of guarding the movement, and therefore its precision, up to an astonishing intensity of 80,000 A/m.
TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN THAT HANDLE THE BEST OF THE WORST.
Icy landscapes. Jagged paths. Pitch black nights. While sudden and severe impact is part of exploration, our Amortiser® system absorbs shock, protects the movement and advances discovery. The black and blue dials are minimally styled to ensure quick time reading when it’s needed most, while the 40mm and 46mm cases deliver compact, yet robust wearing comfort. On the wrist, the stainless steel bracelet is classic toughness, while the rubber strap adds character and reduce weight even further.
“I have long been convinced that putting up with momentary discomfort – even misery – can often lead to more compelling images.”
– Paul Zizka
