PRIM ORLÍK 2020 L.E.

PRIM ORLÍK 2020 L.E.

This special edition PRIM ORLÍK 2020 commemorates one hundred years of the Czech national flag. 

This year, we are celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the Czechoslovak - now Czech - national flag in its present design. ELTON hodinářská, a wholly Czech company, has decided to remind us of this event with a special edition of the iconic model ORLÍK.

The characteristic design is enhanced with deep symbolism and carefully planted details. The first quarter of the stainless-steel bezel has a ceramic coating (HyCeram®) in tricolour tones and it is subtly referring to the main inspiration for the edition - the Czech flag. The numeral 20 on the date wheel is red to signify the year; the other numerals are standard white.

The watch crown features the tricolour, also made using HyCeram®. 
The colours of our flag mean various things to people. The white can represent freedom or purity; the red, blood shed in fights for freedom and defence of the republic. Historically, the colours come from the original royal banner (bicolour) where red is the colour of the shield (royal coat of arms) and white of the silver Czech lion. The blue wedge is most often interpreted as a symbol of Slovak mountains or even blue sky. 

For the first time, ORLÍK features a polished-brushed case, which gives an elegant appearance to the purely sports watch. The heart is an in-house movement PRIM kal. 98.01 with automatic winding. The rotor bears the years 1920-2020. The pictogram of the archway in Nové Město, as well as initials of the assembling watchmaker, are on the movement body. 

The watch is complemented by a hand-stitched leather strap from Tlustý Leatherworks and a stainless-steel buckle with an engraved pictogram of the archway in Nové Město. 

This special, numbered edition will be available until the end of 2020. After that, the series will be closed.

PRIM ORLÍK 2020 L.E.

The special edition PRIM ORLÍK 2020 commemorates a hundred years of the Czechoslovak flag. In its current form, it has been in use since the spring of 1920. Until then the white and red symbol of Bohemia had fulfilled the role, though inadequately, as it had not represented Slovakia as part of the republic, and because two neighbouring countries (Poland and Austria) had also been using those colours. There were dozens of candidates for a new flag, including alterations of the original one using various embedded symbols like a chalice, a lion or an anchor. In the end, the simple and distinct design by Jaroslav Kursa, a draftsman of the state archive gained the most favour. Red and white stripes with a blue wedge. The wedge had reached only to a third of the flag on the original design from 1919, however, it was later extended to reach its half. On 30 April 1920, the design got approved by the National forum as the new official flag.

Interestingly, Jaroslav Kursa was not recognised as the author of the flag for many years as the academic painter Jaroslav Jareš, using Kursa’s absence during the contest, proclaimed the design his own. It was only in 2007 that the Czech vexillological society was able to prove Kursa’s authorship of the Czechoslovak flag.

PRIM Orlík II Bronz L. E.

PRIM ORLÍK original model was created in the factory in Nové Město on commission of the Czechoslovak Army in the early ´60s. The watches had been designed for military divers, and given the fact that only 300 pieces were made, they are still popular and almost unavailable collectors´ item. The new watch is the first PRIM model with the case made of bronze.

PRIM Orlík II - C

ORLIK – this name is a symbol of the legendary wristwatch model for each and every wristwatch fan and is basically indestructible. The Czechoslovak army also convinced themselves of this fact, the model having originally been manufactured for them in NP ELTON in Nove Mesto nad Metuji. They subjected it to truly extreme tests – dropping it from a height of several metres, boiling it and freezing it in a block of ice.

In 2011, ELTON hodinářská decided to build on this tradition and manufacture a wristwatch inspired by this legendary model. Thanks to the quality of manufacturing, this wristwatch is characterised by its exceptional durability.

In order to test its quality in practice, we decided to perform an unusually long test. Because the Orlik was also originally used by army scuba divers, we lent this wristwatch in 2014 to the professional scuba diver Jaroslav Kočárek from Snakesub. He is testing it literally in the flesh whilst diving in various environments in order to check its durability and water resistance under real conditions.

The Orlik has so far passed this demanding test without any problems. The wristwatch has survived dives in the Red Sea known for its high salinity and in the Austrian Attersee where it went down to a maximum depth of almost 70 metres.

No other wristwatch attracts the attention of collectors like the PRIM ORLIK. This model was designed and manufactured in the 60s subject to order for Czechoslovak army. We decided to return to production of his model in 2010. We preserved the design dating back to the end of the 60s but the functioning and running of the movement meet the standards of the 21st century. The ORLIK wristwatch is part of a modern collection, but its roots reach back into history.

PRIM Orlík PRIMÁTORKY 100 L.E. - PRODUCT DISCONTINUED

The hundredth regatta Primators ČEZ Group race is a great opportunity to remind rich history of the Czech rowing.

100 pieces of special model ORLÍK 100 L.E. was created to honour this race and all contestants. First time in the history we used the combination of steel case and special technology of surface hardening in matte black finish. In this particular case 0,8µm thick TiAlCN layer was used. This layer is several times more harder than steel. Alongside with its hardness the surface is also highly abrasion resistant.

Thanks to the black matte finish classic shape of PRIM ORLÍK watch gets completely new feeling, which brings new experience to all sports watches fans.

PRIM ORLÍK 100 L.E. watches are numbered from 001/100 up to 100/100. The watch with the last number 100/100 will be sold in the auction and profit will be donated to Leontinka Nadation - a nadation helping to visually impaired children and students.
