Flight has long been a significant source of inspiration for us. From the wing tips of early bi-planes to the color scheme found in the cockpit of a WWII fighter, we’ve looked to aviation to create some of our most iconic and timeless designs much like the aircraft themselves.

So of course we’re celebrating Aviation Day, because no source of inspiration should go unappreciated—especially on its very own holiday. Say hello to one of our favorite flight-inspired pieces: our newly re-imagined Defender watch. Harkening back to the pioneer days of aviation, this redesign has a military-vintage feel with a stylish, modern twist.

Our newest Defender is fully customizable with 13 faces and 23 straps. Build your own here: http://bit.ly/1oKqXX2
