Buckle-up for landing of Timex Pan Am watch

0

Is there something macabre or inspired about Timex’s collaboration watch with the former Pan Am airline?

It will forever be associated in some minds with the Lockerbie bombing in 1998, triggering a downward spiral for the company that led it to bankruptcy three years later.

But Pan Am was also an iconic carrier in the early and arguably most glamorous age of travel from the 1950s through to the end of the century when a trans-Atlantic flight seemed almost magical.

Timex highlights the latter, calling Pan Am one of the world’s most iconic global airlines and launching two Westbury pilot watches with the airline’s logo on the dial, brown leather strap, case back and oversized crown.

There is a chronograph selling now for £220 and a three-hander with day and date for £180.

Both are 42mm steel watches with Pan Am blue sunray dials housing quartz movements that Timex says capture the spirit of American ingenuity.
