Paying tribute to the classic aviator watches, the DELTAt SoRa incorporates all essential features of a genuine pilot watch such as large dial for readability, massive crown for easy adjustment while wearing gloves, precision movement featuring hacking seconds function for accurate setting and long straps to wear on flight jackets’ sleeves.

SoRa’s large crown, with cross-diagonal pattern (SoRa) or pumpkin styled (SoRa 1918 & SoRa WWII), measuring 10mm in diameter and 5mm in height makes it easily accessible even with gloves on.
SoRa uses the Automatic Movement cal. NH37 from Seiko. SoRa can be wound manually or automatically by its rotor. It also features the hacking seconds function, which allows you to set time precisely up to the second.
SoRa comes with 3 set of extra-long straps including the double-sided Crazy Horse leather straps and the Nylon strap. The tool free-strap-changing system enables the wearer to change the straps easily.
For front glass SoRa uses scratch resistant, sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. SoRa has a water resistance of up to 200 meter / 660 feet.
