The AirNautic Watch Company got its name in 2004 after re-branding of the earlier company named Yantar that was established in 1988. The OCEAN7 watch company is the parent company making exquisite and uniquely designed watches under the AirNautic brand.
Unlike the conventional analog watches, that represents a standard 12 hours clock format, the AirNautic watches represent 24 hours watch representation i.e. the same watch consist of different representation patterns for day and night conditions.
The design principle for AirNautic watches stand on the basic philosophy of isolating the day and night times which the company considers as the elemental parameters of the perception of time.
The AirNautic principle explains their understanding of the watch philosophy as “The course of the sun determines our regeneration phases and influences the biological processes of all life forms on our planet. In extreme conditions under water, in space, in the labyrinth of a cave system, or in a polar night, the holistic information on time can save lives. Being able to easily and instantly read this information at a glance is part of the philosophy and design concept of the new AirNautic Watch Company.”
Watch our take on the AirNautic AN-24 Pilot Watch:
Its unique manufacturing process of sandblasting and cold carbon hardening gives the watch extreme toughness and robustness with four times the strength of a normal stainless steel watch. As per President, Mitchell Feig “All Airnautic watches are designed for active pilots who are hard on their equipment and need a watch that will be flying as long as they will.”
