Amid rising flight delays and cancellations, the golden age of air travel may never return to the gate. (The cocktail lounges! The designer uniforms! Legroom!) Timex’s Pan Am Waterbury watch is a way for timepiece collectors and history buffs to fly back in time — and after selling out last year, the exclusive collaboration is back in stock .
The Timex x Pan Am collection, priced between $179 and $219, features the watchmaker’s Lassic Waterbury in a 42mm stainless steel case with a leather strap. Available with a chronograph movement or a date display, the nostalgic watch references “the precision, ergonomics and unfettered legibility early aviators almost needed when they took to the skies, with bold Arabic indices on the uncomplicated navy blue dial.”
Pan Am-inspired design touches include the airline’s iconic globe logo on the accent plates, crown, strap hardware, and case back, while the metallic blue dial and luminous hands channel colorways of the defunct airway. The watches are water resistant to 50 meters and come in a colorful collector’s gift set with a vintage-inspired lapel pin.
Founded in 1927, Pan Am once called itself “the world’s most accomplished airline” and represented the luxurious Jet Age. It filed for bankruptcy in 1991 and has played on the big and small screens, including the retro ABC series Pan Amtwo Indiana Jones movies, enough 007 movies and others. (Let’s not forget that Leonardo DiCaprio played con artist and faux Pan Am pilot Frank Abagnal Jr. in Catch me if you can.)
