Aviation has been inspiring watch design since the first airplanes took flight. There is a close connection between the instrument panels used to monitor flight progress and the watch, and many watch designers have looked to aircraft for inspiration.
The Blenheim London Chronomaster Pilot Watch is inspired by the Blenheim bomber, a light bomber aircraft that was developed by the British Aeroplane Company. Used extensively during World War II, the plane was incredibly innovative and considered by many to be ahead of its time.
When designing the Blenheim London Chronomaster Pilot Watch, the creative minds at Blenheim London looked to the cockpit of the bomber plane. The dial of the watch closely resembles the instrument dials on the classic fighter plane, and the watch is driven by Swiss-made movements. From the dial to the strap, the timepiece reflects the traditions of military watch design.
