Revue Thommen started manufacturing aircraft instruments as early as the 1920s. It is for this reason that they are more familiar with the special needs of pilots than any other watch manufacturer and make genuine aviator watches.

The Airspeed Classic self-winding wristwatches and chronographs were inspired by the instrument panels of commercial and military aircraft that are equipped with Revue Thommen precision instruments. These instruments are characterized by clear, easy-to-read numerals, hands and displays and are fitted with a self-winding mechanical movement or with a quartz movement. The casing is made from stainless steel or titanium, a material favored by the aerospace industry.

Aviator wristwatches have always held a particular fascination for non-pilots. For some these instruments are clear and easy to read in all situations. Others show their enthusiasm for the technical achievements of aviation by wearing an Airspeed aviator wristwatch and take pleasure in measuring time intervals or the error mar- gin of the speedometer in their car.

Pilots love Airspeed chronographs with flyback function. When planning his flight, the pilot divides the trip up into legs. Each leg lasts an exactly calculated number of minutes. With the Revue Thommen Flyback the pilot can put the hand back to zero at the press of a button and the timing starts all over again.

Revue Thommen has the right model for each person, whether it is the conventional timepiece with large date display, or a sporty chronograph with a rotating bezel, flyback function and large date, or the elegant and discrete XLARGE with a diameter of 41 or 46.

Only a few firms in the Swiss watch industry can look back on such a long tradition as Revue Thommen. The firm was founded in 1853 by Gedeon Thommen and it developed into one of the leading companies in this sector. In the early days, only wristwatches and pocket watches were produced. They relied exclusively on their own movements, as was only fitting. Around 1920, Revue Thommen also decided to start producing instruments for the aviation industry. This segment was constantly expanded, and today, Revue Thommen’s instruments are among the leading products in the aviation industry.
