Vanguard San Bruno

Watch Highlights

“Born to push boundaries,” the Vanguard San Bruno is a tribute to the pioneering aviators of the early 20th century. Named for the city where a pilot first landed a plane on a naval craft, the San Bruno is well-suited to members looking to challenge the idea of what’s possible.

This German self-winding automatic is presented with either a stylish genuine leather strap or a durable stainless steel bracelet.

The powerful and uber-reliable Miyota 8219 movement is housed within a 45mm stainless steel case and topped with sapphire crystal.

The black dial and white luminous hands and indices provide an elegant and powerful contrast for ease of legibility. A pair of helpful subdials add further time tracking detail, while waterproofing up to 50m adds an extra level of adventure-readiness. 

The Vanguard San Bruno was originally offered as part of our Watch Gang Platinum subscription. To see all the previous Watch Gang Platinum timepieces we’ve featured, click here.
