"I purchased the first ancient mariner from you a number of years ago…
I have many watches…Uylsse Nardin, Rolex, on from there….but I'll tell you the quality and attention to detail, looks and workmanship in your watches…is so far above these others its almost laughable.  For the heck of it,  I took part in a kickstart of a new company LUXURY watch…I don’t think people understand what luxury means…its not PRICE its workmanship, its what makes the watch.. you all have nailed it.. from many years of work and detail….I enjoy and appreciate my watch more every year…"  R A

Manual Wind Specs
The Airbatic manual wind uses the ETA 2804 17 jewel movement which is thinner than the automatic version

The watch case and dials are identical in both versions, however the case back on the manual wind reduces the watch thickness by 2mm… making it one of the thinnest watches available.

 A tribute to the famous "Citabria
®"


A pre-war Chief of a different color, the "
Citabria®" was first introduced by the Aeronca Champion Aircraft Corp. in the mid 1940's. Their famous Aeronca Champ, a plane in which d.freemont took his 1st airplane ride, was the basis for the souped-up and acrobatic air worthy plane known as the "Citabria®."  Citabria® spelled backwards is Airbatic.
 

The Airbatic “Citabria®” is sacred to d.freemont because of the relationship not only to the creator (df), but also for the relationship it has to famous persons.  The Taylor Craft Corp, after a series of buyouts, nurtured this great little airplane into the famous “Citabria®”… derivation of the name is Airbatic spelled backward, now owned by Bellanca Aircraft.  The principal engine was a Lycoming, interestingly; df graduated from Lycoming College in Lycoming County, Pa,  the site of Lycoming Engine Corp.  Originally built in north western Pennsylvania, these airplanes were used in greater numbers as trainers – in fact, df had his earliest training in one.

The death of the world famous airman Steve Fossett in a Citabria® has many thinking about the unusual circumstances, like the great number of pilots lost in what is now called the Nevada triangle. Steve lost his life on a clear day less than 100 miles from his field. Some of his remains were located a year later. Is there any mystery here… df thinks so! The Citabria® is a fully certified Airbatic aircraft with more than adequate power to negotiate excessive winds and turbulence at lower altitudes.  The Nevada triangle is now being scrutinized by many associated with recently complied facts about lost aircraft in the neighborhood of Area 51.


Steve Fossett was flying a Citabria® on the day he went missing.

Customer Comments:
"I did not think anything could be more elegant the the
Santorini but, when I wore my new Airbatic, I was convinced. The Airbatic can be worn at any formal or special occasion with pride, as can the Santorini but perhaps even more so." AB

"I just wanted to let you know that I received my Airbatic watch today. It is a very unique timepiece; understated and elegant. I am sure I will enjoy it for many years to come. And I wanted also to say that the buying process I experienced with you (and Barbara) was a refreshing departure from what one has, unfortunately, come to expect from many companies these days. Keep up the good work."  PW

"My Airbatic arrived today and I couldn't be more thrilled. You called it "a beautiful watch" and it is. Beyond doubt it is.
As I found with my Prescott, the photo's just don't do it justice. I could begin with the dial: the subtle color tone and the texturing simply don't show up properly in the photo; or the way the dial seems to shift color from umber to a coppery beige depending on the light. The numbers and indices are gorgeous and beautifully applied. The hands appropriate and easily read. The case is thin enough, even the automatic, to fit neatly under a cuff. The polish is superb. and the machining of the coin edge and onion crown exceeds excellent. The df emblem at the 7 pm position a nice touch that my prescott didn't have. And, on the rotor, the identifying number N 19 much more easily read than the 33 of my Prescott (which I need magnification to see, though that may be my fading eyesight). It is a very very cool thing to know I am unlikely ever to see either watch on any another wrist...and this number is unique to me. The watch is regulated to just over 2 seconds a day. AMAZING...and I thought my Prescott's 5.8 was wonderful.
Finally, I think you for the distressed brown band you included. It's perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. This watch, genuinely, can be worn as a casual sport or dressed up for formal occassions and be at home in either setting. I love it.
Thank you, Mr. Mcready, for making such a work of art. I am proud to wear my d. freemont." RP
