Since the dawn of time, humans have dreamt of flying. The history of powered and controlled aviation, which began in the early 1900s, is inseparably connected to that of wristwatches. As aviators experienced difficulties checking their pocket watches to time their performance during flights, they started to look for a solution. This resulted in the development of men’s wristwatches, which allowed aviators to keep both hands on the controls. The brand Aviator was created in Russia, a country, which historically is renowned for its aviation features and courageous pilots. Since the year 2000, Aviator has provided watches to people of the most extreme professions, such as military, rescuers and pilots, as well as to watch and aviation lovers, building its excellent reputation for more than a decade in Europe, America and Asia. Starting from 2006 Aviator has been the official timekeeper of the Russian aerobatic team “Swifts”, pilots of which fly the legendary MIG-29 fighters.
