Previewing the Terra Cielo Mare Toponi Officer
Terra Cielo Mare has just released the first info about a new model, from the Sorci Verdi collection, to be unveiled at the upcoming Baselworld 2015. The Terra Cielo Mare Toponi Officer or TCM Toponi Officer if you prefer, is the re-edition of a timepiece the italian brand has first launched in 2002.
The Terra Cielo Mare Toponi Officer draws inspiration from those watches compliant to a specification called Type A-7, set by the US Army during WW2, which featured a dial angled at 50° clockwise, to make them easy to wear on top of the leather flying suit and easy to read without the pilot having to take his hands off the cloche. The case back is transparent and is protected by a couvette, a lid troopers used to hide their war orders.
The case, in steel and marine bronze, is 43mm wide and houses the hand wound ETA Unitas 6498, a well known and much appreciated caliber by watch enthusiasts. The Terra Cielo Mare Toponi Officer will retail for 3500€ but will come with a pink gold case too, made in a Limited Edition. More info to come and an in depth review as soon as we will get our hands on it at Baselworld 2015. Update: Please read, by following this link, our hands-on review of the TCM Toponi Officer.
