Powering the GX P-51 Auto-Chronograph Pilot is a Swiss programmed development – Sellita SW-500, a Valjoux clone – with 48h force hold and day-date sign. The development is noticeable through the caseback. The watch is accessible in a few tones – steel/blue dial, dark covered steel/dark dial, dark covered titanium/dark dial, titanium/dark dial and titanium/blue dial. Every one of them are combined with a bolted leather lash (with or without gator pattern). This GX P-51 Auto-Chronograph Pilot is accessible on Kickstarter from USD 990 (steel models) or USD 1,190 (titanium models).
