After 5 years of success with our first Skydiver, we felt we wanted to add a new member to this high-flying family. In late 2016 a new version, the UTC Skydiver Black Night, was born.
The name, Black Night, is borrowed from a previous all-black watch that we made as a compliment to Chronolink Worldtimer UTC. Our black timepieces are both inspired by the dark yet beautiful fall and winter season in the northern parts of Sweden. The darkness of the DLC coated case is perfect for any occasion, and the black finish of the watch instantly brings stealth mode to mind.
To make the UTC Skydiver Black Night special, we decided to use elements that can be seen on JAS 39 Gripen, which is the fighter jet used by the Swedish Air Force. The color on the hands and index is Ghost Grey, which is the same color you would see on the Jas 39 Gripen. The combination of the black case and dial together with the ghost grey hands and index is a feature that makes this watch worthy its name.
Handcrafted for, and in collaboration with Swedish fighter pilots, UTC Skydiver is designed and manufactured to meet strict military demands. This high-flying watch incorporates a combination of an analogue and digital movement. UTC Skydiver Black Night is a natural extension of its precursor. Once again we have manufactured a watch for those who want to push limits when flying high in a fighter jet, as well as anyone on the ground who appreciates function and durability in perfect harmony.
