Be sure to watch our short, high definition video of this timepiece below! We are offering a brand new, in the box with tags (never worn). Reactor 49.25mm Valkyrie E6B Slide Rule Bezel Black Dial Chronograph Pilot Watch, Model 81001. Weve seen a lot of aviator watches come through our doors, but the Reactor Valkyrie has to be one of the nicest.This timepiece is big, bold, and has a flair that other pilot style watches at this price-point simply do not possess. The silver / black color execution give this advanced and rugged instrument of timekeeping a classic and bold look while not skimping on function.
Like all stainless steel Reactors, the case is milled from tough as nails forged 316L stainless steel. It houses an ultra durable and accurate Miyota 1/20th second quartz chronograph with date. The slightly asymmetric chronograph makes a statement to the eye. The slide rule bezel dominates the design, smoothly turning in either direction to perform an impressive array of mathematical calculations.
An immense eight layers of Superluminova coats the dial markings and hands. Make sure to check out our video on this watch to see the "lume" in action! These are located under the magnetic lid along with 2 extra bracelet links in case you happen to have a larger wrist size.
K1 Hardened High Ceramic Glass (significantly more shatter resistant than Sapphire). Solid Forged 316L Stainless Steel.
200 Meters (660 feet) - dive rated. Triple O-Ring Screw Down Crown provides 100 Meters of Water Resistance even with the Crown unscrewed. Citizen Miyota Quartz Chronograph with Date. 215 grams (7.6 ounces).
Every Reactor watch shares a set of engineering criteria that Reactor has branded its DNA. These features are built into every watch Reactor makes, and theyre what we at Time Visions believe gives Reactor not only a superior build quality, but a superior value. All cases are forged from solid marine grade type 316L stainless steel or titanium for the ultimate in strength or corrosion resistance. Forged, is the key word here.Virtually all watches in this price point are made in cast-case molds, a process that can result in air pockets and weak points in the finished product. Reactors are forged out of solid blocks of stainless steel or titanium. If the case of a watch isnt tough, not much else matters.
Bands are attached to the case with solid threaded screw-bars providing at least 500% higher strength than most competing watches. The most common way for a watch to break is for the strap or bracelet to separate from the case. Modern watches are often large and quite heavy, which will put tremendous pressure on the flimsy spring bars most watch manufacturers use.
Even the best spring bars can only withstand about 35 lbs of force before giving out. Reactor watches utilize a solid threaded rod that completely penetrates the case/band interface. This system can withstand hundreds of pounds of pressure. Check out the video below of a Reactor Neutron pulling in an adult bull shark without failing at the bracelet! Think you could do this with a watch that uses a springbar?
Reactors exclusive screw down crown system stays water tight even when unscrewed. Yes, this does happen and we have seen it. Most watches are only watertight when. The crown and function pushers are tightly screwed down.
Change the time or date and forget to screw the crown back down and your watch can be ruined the next time your hand goes in the water. Reactor's DNA eliminates this problem. With a triple O-ring system, a Reactor watch maintains 100 meters of water resistance, even with the crown unscrewed. This level of protection is extremely rare in the watch industry.Casebacks are forged from the same high-grade material as the rest of the case for a perfect seal, even after a battery change. Some of the competitors at Reactors price range produce casebacks from sheet metal. This process makes them easy to bend or break and difficult to seal after a battery change which creates the possibility of leaks. Whether you are an EMT or another type of professional who needs to read the time at a glance, even in the dark, Reactor has you covered. The hands and hour markers on all Reactor watches have 8 coats of Superluminova applied. Superluminova is a chemical compound that absorbs energy from sunlight during daytime hours and emits it in the form of a glow during the night. But if you want to build a watch with the best luminosity available, you use Superluminova and plenty of it. Reactor watches simply have the brightest, longest lasting "lume" we have seen in any watch we have handled. These specially formulated mineral crystals are more scratch resistant than standard mineral and far more shatter resistant than a sapphire crystal. Reactor examined every available type of crystal technology in their efforts to build the very best performance sport watch. They chose K1 hardened mineral crystal even over Sapphire to deliver the most life-proof timepiece possible. Nearly every Reactor watch (with the exception of Limited Edition and Diamond watches) comes with Reactor's innovative "Second Life" package. The tough, weighted base turns the watch into a nice desk clock when not being worn (and keeps the watch from being tossed into a drawer) while the thickly padded cylinder transforms into the world's best can coozie, keeping your favorite beverage cold and condensation-free for hours. There is zero waste - nothing to be thrown away. Virtually all other watch warranties only cover the movement of the watch. Many companies talk about putting the customer first, but Reactor actually does it. Their repair center is located in their main offices in the US. They maintain a parts inventory that is unheard of in the industry, and the founder of the company personally handles any tricky repairs. This is the way customer service should be.
