Aviator Swiss Watches - Vintage Military Pilot
By Kunal Bajaj — July 24, 2013
 
Aviator Watches
Aviator is the legendary pilot watch brand from Russia, a country which is renowned for its rich aviation history and courageous pilots. Aviator's exceptional watches have served professional military officers, rescuers and pilots and well as aviation watch lovers. From 2006, Aviator has been the official timekeeper of the famous Russian aerobatic team Swifts, pilots of which wear Aviator timepieces and fly the legendary MIG-29 fighter jets for the Russian Air Force.
 
Since 2011, Aviator watches have also been developed and manufactured in Switzerland's Canton of Jura home of the watchmaking industry. Aviator's elegant, high performance watches combine original designs with the professional skills and experience of its watchmakers, along with sincere passion for the art of fine aviation timepieces.

Swiss made military aviator watches depicting an iconic Russian heritage are made with the intent of providing high quality timepieces for its military. Russia is the largest manufacturer of aviation wristwatches, with a history dating back to 1927 when the Russian government decided to build exclusive timepieces for its military. The direct descendants of these watches are available today in the Aviator line. From highly complicated chronographs to big-dialed, easy-to-read timekeepers, the Aviator watch by Volmax is the culmination of the three quarters of the century of aviation watch development. Aviator watches are milestones of watch keeping as they combine the Swiss skill and the legendary Russian history to create a classic timepiece. 
 
The history of the Aviator brand is inseparably connected with this desire and with those who make this dream come true every day. It is profoundly inspired by the history of Aviation through the details of Propeller series and the modern speed of aviation with the unparalleled design of MiG series. 
 
The mission of the Aviator brand is to not only serve with distinction to those who conquer the sky but all those who support them here on ground. It is no accident that Aviator watch design, construction, functionality and ergonomics are reminiscent of airplane dashboard instruments as it represents itself as the official watch amongst the finest military aerobatics teams in the world.
