The 1972 Top Gun is the ultimate pilot watch with a 12-hour chronograph,
alarm, sapphire crystal, and tachymeter.
In 1972, the oceans and space had already been conquered and were no longer novelties. It was a time for breaking records on earth.
Cars and motorcycles were getting faster, and supersonic flights were more accessible; the Concorde generation was born.
In the 70s, watches became super-watches, with intense emphasis on their engineering. It was a time when engineers became designers,
as they created watches born for measurement with craftsmanship and precision. – DH
