The TWELF-X SKY 1914 Auto Flyer Black/Rose Gold is an aviation-inspired automatic watch in TWELF-X's SKY range. The watch is named the 1914 Auto Flyer in tribute to the invention of the autopilot, first demonstrated by Lawrence Sperry in 1914. The TWELF-X 1914 Auto Flyer features a three time zone feature. The second time zone is indicated on the external rotating bezel with a 120 click unidirectional bezel with markers from 1 to 12. The inner rotating ring acts as a third time zone indicator, featuring markers from 1 to 12, to keep track of time for the truly globalised adventurer. The watch features an IP-plated black case, an IP-plated rose gold bezel and hands and a black textured dial with off-white accents. The lume glows in bright turquoise.

Twelf-X always intrigued me as a brand, I really wanted to get the beautiful rose gold, but it looked like it was going to be too big for me at a diameter of 44mm. However, I looked through their Instagram post and saw models wearing it and felt that it isn't that big afterall. I purchased mine and it just arrived yesterday. Put it on and it's beautiful and perfect.
I purchased the auto flyer black/rose gold. The silicone strap is one of the most comfortable straps I have ever worn. It is so comfortable that I often forget I'm wearing it. An automatic watch with sapphire crystal and a date window at this price point is hard to beat!
