Tockr C-47 Skeleton Automatic "Hugo" (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
American watch brand Tockr announces the second edition of the brand’s new skeleton watch model, the C-47 Skeleton Automatic «Hugo». This new model and new colorway represents an expansion of the widely acclaimed C-47 Skeleton collection, which launched in October of 2020, and within weeks, completely sold out. Like the classic blue and black editions before it, the new vivid blue Hugo edition will be highly exclusive, offered in a limited series of just 10 numbered timepieces.
From the beginning, Tockr has been inextricably linked to the world of aviation and to the family lineage of Tockr Founder Austin Ivey, a third-generation pilot. Ivey’s grandfather flew a C-47 aircraft in combat during World War II, so it was only fitting that the C-47 Radial Engine became the collection that helped Tockr first take flight, and the C-47 Skeleton Automatic pays stylistic homage to the original collection while allowing wearers a peek under the hood at its skeletonized Swiss automatic movement.
The new « Hugo » edition brings the Tockr legacy full circle, as the new series is named after an incredibly special member of Ivey’s family. “I’m proud to welcome this new C-47 Skeleton “Hugo” model to the Tockr family, just as my wife and I are looking forward to welcoming our newborn son Hugo into ours,” said Ivey. “One day I will be proud to present a Tockr watch to him and share the joy of flying together.”
As with the previous C-47 Skeleton editions (now sold out), the new C-47 Skeleton “Hugo” features a 42 mm stainless-steel case containing a Swiss-made automatically winding movement, caliber STP-6-15, enclosed beneath an anti-glare sapphire crystal. In this 10-piece series, the movement, with its custom vivid blue skeletonized and engraved rotor, features a blackened treatment to achieve a dramatic visual effect and provide a clear reading of the central luminescent hours, minutes, and seconds hands. The C-47 Skeleton also offers a robust 44-hour power reserve. The movement has been rigorously tested, produced, and assembled by Tockr partners in the Swiss Jura to ensure premium quality and reliability.
The wearer can admire an unobstructed view of the skeletonized movement on the dial side, framed by a vivid blue outer ring (with subtle Tockr logo plate) and a black inner grid. The reverse case side has also been fitted with an anti-glare sapphire crystal to allow a view of the custom skeletonized rotor. The case back bears an engraving of the watch’s consecutive number that attests to its exclusivity, numbered from 1/8 to 8/8. The C-47 comes packaged with two straps, delivered with a premium hand-stitched vivid blue calf leather strap and an additional black silicon band, both equipped with a stainless-steel pin buckle engraved with the Tockr logo.
Grounded in its rich past, yet always with an eye to the next horizon, Tockr has set its course to create reliable, design-forward mechanical wristwatches. The new C-47 Skeleton “Hugo” series is now ready for take-off, available only at Tockr.com. Each C-47 “Hugo” model will retail for $2,700 USD in 2021 but is available for the special-pre-order value of $1,899 for a limited time.
