The watch is inspired by the Jolly Rogers squadron who flew the F-14 Tomcat. The F-14 Tomcat flew in the US Navy from 1974-2006 and was onboard carrierships. The F-14 Tomcat was loved by many and still is today. The unique sweep wing function gave the plane great flying skills at both low and fast speeds.
The watches are developed by a former aircraft mechanic from the Royal Danish Airforce.

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.
