Every now and again we come upon a clock that effortlessly combines the glamour of the very early days of international travel with modern technological conveniences. Cased in beautifully aged, dark brown textured leather, this will be just as at home on a bedside table as it will be in a cabin on the Orient Express.

As the world began to think more internationally, we needed a fast way to get from coast to coast. Trains and boats were reliable, but not nearly fast enough. Enter the pioneers of the early 20th century who attempted to make manned flight a reality. Chief among them were the Wright brothers and Alberto Santos-Dumont.
