Halda launches the first real racing watch – with an engine from Zenith

With a strong conviction of never compromising and the refusal of doing anything but the best, Halda Watch Co has yet again developed a watch that challenges the most reputable timepiece manufacturers.

The Halda Race Pilot is based on the unique Halda concept which consists of two interchangeable time modules that can be docked into a time platform at the owner’s preference. Each module is developed for optimum performance in its respective environment. That is why Halda watches deliver superior functionality.

The Race Module was developed in close cooperation with race drivers and is equipped with sophisticated technology that really makes a difference in professional racing. The watch is programmed with high-tech functions such as the Race Pilot software, a set of advanced Racing Chronograph and Countdown algorithms referring to FIA Formula 1 regulations.

The Mechanical Module stands for the link to the past, celebrating Halda’s history and passion for mechanical movements. It has a design inspired by the racing community and is equipped with one of the best engines one can find: a caliber produced by one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers – Zenith. The self-winding movement features a power reserve indicator and has been beautifully decorated with Côtes de Genève and Clous de Paris. For those moments aside the race track, the mechanical module completes the Halda Race Pilot perfectly, without any compromise in design, function or quality.
