Calibre Lancer Watch Collection

Legendary B-1B Lancer Over Pacific Ocean

by John Sealander  

One of the Most Versatile Long-Range Bombers Ever Conceived
Serves as the Inspiration for this Equally Versatile Timepiece

Calibre WatchesThe legendary Rockwell B-1B Lancer has served in many different capacities for the United States Air Force since it was originally conceived in the 1960’s. This sophisticated variable-sweep wing aircraft was developed during the cold war as a supersonic, long-range nuclear bomber. The controversial bomber filled a vital gap between an aging B-52 fleet and the new stealth technology that would eventually replace it.

As the Cold War ended and the need for manned nuclear bombers diminished, the Lancer was reconfigured for sub-sonic, low-level penetration bombing to support the regional conflicts that were popping up around the world. Equipped with advanced defensive electronics and modified for conventional weapons and heavier payloads, the B-1B Lancer served admirably in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo. With 61 world records for speed, payload, distance, and time-to-climb, the Lancer is still an important part of today’s modern air force.

The longevity and versatility of the B-1B Lancer provided the inspiration for the equally versatile Calibre Lancer watch collection. The impressive 44 mm Lancer shows its military roots with an uncluttered, easy-to-read dial that is available in both chronograph and three-hand configurations. The massive stainless steel case is water resistant to an impressive 330 feet. All models are equipped with a protected crown, a comfortable rubber strap, and bright luminous hands, making this versatile timing tool ready for anything.

The Lancer utilizes a unique corrosion resistant copper dial that is available in four different colors. Surrounding the large, pilot-style dial is a black, IP coated stainless steel unidirectional rotating bezel that is clearly marked in 60-minute increments. Like it’s namesake, the Calibre Lancer is suitable for a variety of missions. It makes a great diver’s watch, pilot’s watch, or even a fashion statement.
