It takes more than a catchy name to make a watch work for EDC. But Helgray’s new Hornet watch lives up to its moniker. Inspired by fighter jockey’s pilot watches from the 80’s, the Hornet is overbuilt, reliable and more than capable of following you into that half-cuban-eight. Nearly indestructible, the Hornet’s 42mm case is forged from solid 316L grade stainless steel, and boasts a double-domed sapphire crystal and water resistance to 10 ATM (or 100m for those who dig the metric system). Unlike automatic watches that can cost more than double, the Hornet utilizes a Japanese quartz Miyota 1L45 movement that requires virtually no maintenance. Each watch is built with four essential elements, robustness, accuracy, functionality, and value. Most importantly, the Hornet tells time. The uncluttered face allows tracking of more than one time zone using the inner rotating 12-hour bezel, and unique Superluminova hands distinguish between hour and minute in a glance.
