Once upon a time, air travel was exciting. Before the hassles of heightened airport security and cramped commercial airlines, travelling by air was a luxury event. Passengers in the late 1950s enjoyed flying in style. And the Jet Age ushered in a new era of design, highlighted by smooth lines and polished metal.
Our Aerodrome Watch is inspired by the streamlined, futuristic design of that era and recalls some of the instruments from those early, flying machines. It doesn't matter if you're 30,000 feet in the air or have your feet planted firmly on the ground, the Aerodrome brings back the thrill of America's first jet flights.
Beneath the keyhole-shaped window of Cotswold® crystal is a watch face unlike any we've ever designed. Two white subdials pop against a background of iridescent midnight blue. Indices shimmer with a gleaming silver finish that matches the two main hands, while the subdials and second hands blaze in a bold, bright red color that was a must-have for any pilot's watch. Buckle up the black leather strap and you can almost hear the thunder of the jet engines.
