The large 50mm case is large for quick and clear readable time and to be worn in balance with their heavy flight suits. The outer bezel is inspired by the air force jets rear afterburner exhaust that opens and closers during high speed thrusts. I designed this watch to act as the pilot’s vehicle for time and to resemble the air force jet as they recognize them. With the heavy gun-metal case and the sub dials with military numerals similar to the pilots control panel in the cockpit; the watch becomes a familiar tool that they wear in flight.
The name X-43A comes after the world’s fastest jet that traveled in excess of 6,500 mph. It was the only jet to travel at such high supersonic speeds. The purpose of this watch was to resemble a machine that could handle such high velocities, the epitome of speed in the skies. This watch is for those pilots who want to take the experience of flight with them always.
