The Aristo Navigator 3H59A - Sapphire is clearly inspired by German military watches from the 60s. And that means it is designed with legibility in mind. The dial is kept simple and sticks to the basics. It's highly legible and the use of only black and white on the dial along with the minimal text leads to a refreshing and fuss-free dial. The classic Flieger sword-style hands and the matte black dial are filled with good amount of SuperLumiNova. Staying true to the pilot theme, the 12’o clock triangle is flanked by two dots on each side.
