Welcome to the Skies

Aviator watches have always been part of this adventure.

Wempe Zeitmeister – The Original-Style Watch

The aviator watch, one of the most successful watch types at all, was first developed in the 1940s. Harking back to early observation watches and cockpit instruments, they were fitted with the characteristic features that still make these watches so popular nowadays. A matt black dial, luminous numerals and Lozenge hands, and a triangular zero index ensure clear readability even in the dark. Our Wempe Glashütte i/SA Zeitmeister aviator watches fulfil all these criteria and redefine the classic design in a contemporary way using innovative case materials.
