The Vlieger 20044B has been crowned watch of the year in the European Watch of the Year awards. The 0024 England, 0024 Scandinavia and 0024 Netherlands magazines hold these awards annually. The jury received hundreds of submissions and in August, our Vlieger emerged as one of four finalists. In September, we travelled to London to present our watch to the jury of five to great success. The title was ours!
The following quote was taken from the jury report: “It is the perfect, plain manufacture case of the Van der Gang Vlieger that is the deciding factor. With a date indicator, second time zone and AM/PM indicator there is nothing wrong with the functionality either and what’s more, the chronograph looks fantastic and avoids the trap of the clichéd shape of pilot’s watches.”
