The MIG-29 COCKPIT CHRONO model has an unusual story behind its creation. Despite the jetlag from a long flight, work on the new model began as soon as our designer arrived at the “Swifts” air base. It was there, inside the MIG-29’s cockpit, that the first draft of this watch was developed. The Aviator team wanted to build a watch with a purely instrumental feel and provide multi-functions for the user. The design of the case and dial was barely modified, but based on the MIG-29’s cockpit clock instrument.
The Chronograph’s ADD and SPLIT function enables the sophisticated measurements of a flight, providing flawless precision. The additional crown on the left side not only creates symmetry, but also rotates the internal bezel, which combined with the external one, converts ground speed to the true air speed. With an added alarm function, this watch will keep record of take-off timing and give advance reminders. The classic instrument look, with its elaborate functionality, makes the timepiece the perfect co-pilot for navigating the wearer’s way through life in the air and on the ground.
