Wyler Vetta enriches the collection of Dynawind watches – the line inspired by the legendary timepieces of the 60s – with a new Limited Edition of 1659 copies dedicated to the Italian Army, thanks also to the important synergy with Difesa Servizi S.p.A., in-house company of the Ministry of Defence, which is entrusted with the concession for the use of the Armed Forces’ brands.
The history of the Dynawind collection, fascinating and extraordinary, has always spoken of courage, strength, important values and has been linked, since its beginnings in the early sixties, to the world of Special Forces becoming – thanks to the presence of the brand in America – the essential timepiece for those seeking technical reliability such as the Guardia Coste.
In 2023, the strong bond of Wyler Vetta with its origins and its vocation that combines tradition and innovation, gives rise to a new collaboration that flies the flag of the Italian flag. Thus was born the collection of Dynawind Esercito watches, a line consisting of two timepieces dedicated to the Armed Force, a limited edition of 1659 pieces that recalls the year of origin of the Italian Army.
Says Marcello Binda, CEO of Wyler Vetta: “I am particularly proud of this collaboration that underlines the important link between the brand and Italy and allows us to celebrate positive values, the qualities that we have always promoted through the production of our watches. The collaboration with the Army, which I personally thank for the availability, has allowed us to give new impetus to a collection of watches – Dynawind – that described the most exciting chapters in the history of Wyler Vetta”.
Wyler Vetta Dynawind Esercito watches
The Dynawind Esercito watches, strictly Swiss Made, are proposed with a 42 mm diameter sandblasted steel case and are animated by a single-time movement caliber 2824/SW200 self-winding and waterproof up to 10 atmospheres. The screw-down case back of the watch bears the engraving of the star and the inscription “ARMY” in honor of the prestigious collaboration, in addition to the progressive numbering “n. 1 of 1659” limited series.
The new Dynawind models acquire a unique personality thanks to the design and style details, including the large onion crown, designed to facilitate the grip and the second sphere, in sandblasted steel, with the counterweight of the “star” 5 points that, at the passage at 12 o’clock, composes the logo of the Italian Army.
The opaque military green dial features “bold” hour markers paired with large luminescent Arabic numerals such as hour and minute hands. The date, on a white background, is placed between 4 and 5 o’clock. The clock mounts a milled K5 mineral glass with internal anti-reflective treatment to facilitate the reading of the time.
For the Dynawind Esercito WV0264 model, the classic Nato nylon strap – which has its roots in the military world – is fitted with a sandblasted steel pin buckle.
The Dynawind Esercito WV0263 model offers a steel bracelet with sandblasted finish, deployant buckle with safety buttons.
