We designed the watch to make you feel close to the aircraft by incorporating key features like the big air intakes, crown-shaped fan, F-14 rotor, and colors from Mavericks helmet in the movie Top Gun.
The watches are developed by a former aircraft mechanic from the Danish Airforce, who served on F-16 and rescue helicopters and they are made in Germany a country that is well known for its high quality and finish.
The watchcase is inspired by the F-14 Tomcat and the big square air intakes. The case is made in stainless steel 316L and then glass bead blasted before Blue PVD coated like the blue color from Mavericks helmet in the Top Gun movie starring Tom Cruise.

Hi There, I'm Thomas and I have dedicated my life to build up a danish watch company with watches inspired by fighter jets.
As a former aircraft mechanic in the RDAF and with a passion for watches and fighter jets, I have a dream of making fighter jet-inspired watches and build up a new watch company based in Denmark.
We aim to use swiss movements and assembly lines in Europe in our watches for the future.
When we develop a watch we look for the key features from the fighter jets and try to incorporate these elements into the watch using both watch ccase and dial.
Our intro to market watches, 3 models inspired by the F-14 Tomcat the inspiration we worked with are the air intakes, engine fan, and flight instruments, ejection seat, and the Tomcat logo.
We combined it with inspiration from Top Gun, the F-14 rotor was inspired by the famous scene where they fly inverted and giving the bird. The rotor actually "flies" inverted when charging the automatic movement.
After running crowdfunding campaign on both Indiegogo and Kickstarter, I managed to start the production of our first 300 watches inspired by the F-14 Tomcat.
After doing great sales on preorder and by crowdfunding I managed to sell 10% of the company to an investor to develop the company and to support production further.
Our next watch will be inspired by the F/A-18 Hornet in Blue Angels colors.
