Read more about our new 1930 finish on The Observatory.
Flieger: Flier. Pilot. Aviator.
The clicking keys of a typewriter. The snap of a mechanical camera shutter. The roar of a massive radial airplane engine. The bold lines and ambitions of a time past. The Flieger is inspired by the intrepid men and women from the golden age of aviation, and our 1930 finish is made to be an expression emblematic of this era.
The Flieger is our most powerful Electric Torch. Use it deep underground, beneath the dark sky of a new moon with miles of open country, or during a pre-flight check on any aircraft before a night flight. With five available light intensities accessed with a quick half-press of the tailswitch, the Flieger produces a beam of light optimized for longer distances that displays rich, accurate color that mimics sunlight.
Old Made New
Flieger 1930 is the resurrection of a lost art - a rediscovery numerous years in the making in finishing metals the old way. Like a well-used camera that tells the story of the photographer's thousands of frames, or the gold-rimmed glass keys of a typewriter showcasing countless letters written, 1930 is a finish designed to tell your story.
Age to Gold
A strong, rigid, monocoque case made from aluminum bronze - an alloy used in aircraft landing gear - forms the body of the Flieger. The 1930 coating is then painstakingly applied by hand in multiple parts over the course of several days, resulting in an elegant black finish. Treat it gently, and it will age gently. Use it hard, and like the creases, scratches, and colors in a pair of fine leather footwear, the finish will show that, too, with every fade to golden bronze.

Aluminum Bronze Casing
An alloy used primarily in landing gear and marine applications, the casing material for the Flieger 1930 is made from aluminum bronze. Cut from a single piece of material in a bold, monocoque form, providing a strong, adventure-ready base for our 1930 finish.
Like a well-used camera that tells the story of the photographer's thousands of frames, or the gold-rimmed glass keys of a typewriter showcasing countless letters written, 1930 is a finish designed to tell your story.
An analog finish, 1930 was specially designed to age gracefully with time, revealing a golden bronze patina unique to your uses.
Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal
Each Flieger is fitted with our synthetically grown sapphire crystal lenses. Second only to diamond for scratch resistance, our crystals are highly polished then layered with an anti-reflective coating for superior optical efficiency.
Calibre 816 Light Engine
Regulating power to the LED, the Calibre 816 efficiently maintains constant output throughout the life of the MPC-18650P Power Cell and provides an intuitive user interface, allowing you to simply click to turn the Flieger on, half press to cycle through each of the five light intensities (1, 25, 100, 500, and 720 lumens), and click to turn off.
Highly conductive and electrochemically stable, we coat our electrical contacts in gold to ensure long term and efficient operation of our Electric Torches.
Every junction of the Electric Torch is secured with custom seals, allowing for reliable all weather use.
Sealed with a rubber boot and easy to activate, the titanium-domed tailswitch on the Flieger allows you to conveniently and effectively operate the light one-handed.
Lumicron technology for Muyshondt Electric Torches allows you to see better. A proprietary set of designs and processes results in a smooth, high clarity beam that mimics sunlight, and displays beautiful accurate colors.
MPC-18650P Power Cell
Designed around the MPC-18650P Power Cell, the Flieger provides high outputs and long runtimes from its rechargeable power plant, and is also capable of running off 2x MPC-18350I Power Cells and 2x CR123A batteries with an included adapter.
