An original Haveston design:
Constructed from detailed heat resistant silicone, each coaster closely conveys the character of its namesake design, and serves perfectly as a soft valet placement on which to rest your timepiece, or as a base to relax your beverage.
SET - C:
09-C: “Fab Four” 924-330, Dial Coaster - 1973
Commissioned by the U.K. MOD in the 1970s, it utilised a readily available commercial ETA-7733 Chronograph movement and was illuminated by tritium paint. Departing from previous Lemania powered monopusher movements, the dual pushers allowed stop and resume of elapsed time.
10-C: A-7 Aerial Navigation, Dial Coaster - 1935
Commissioned for the US Army Airforce in the 1930s, the A-7 monopusher chronograph had a huge 49mm case with a deliberately 40 degrees offset, non illuminated dial for easier reading while holding the flying yolk.
11-C: Trench, Dial Coaster - 1918
With distinctive WW1 radium illuminated “gothic” style numerals, chronographs of this era were often found in monopusher pocket watch form. For efficient legibility, Roman numerals were being phased out in preference of arabic, with the enamel dial having a black base for higher contrast.
12-C: Airforce Tri-Compax, Dial Coaster - 1944
A dual pusher, radium illuminated chronograph, mainly issued to aircrews.
Unlike most bi-compax chronographs of the period, the addition of a third subsidiary register allowed the recording of elapsed time beyond an hour. A now familiar and optimum stage of chronograph dial design.
