An automatic, 12-hour Chronoscope with date
TO SOAR INTO THE SKY
To soar into the sky and float aloft in the wind, peering down on the world below, knowing that, if you so wished, you could touch the stars.
Welcome to the Atlantic Chronoscope, borne from a love of flight, inspired by the pioneering spirits that risked life and limb to achieve it.
Inspired by the advent of lighter-than-air powered flight, the Atlantic has been designed through a process of deep research into the time period when flight was still a concept alien to most. In particular, we have focused on the R34 airship, the craft with so much potential and possibility attached to it from manufacture through to maiden flight. The R34 went on to become the first airborne craft to complete, without incident, a double-transatlantic crossing - and with that feat secured what looked like an exciting future of worldwide travel via airship.
The dawn of powered flight opened up the possibility that man could become as bird, something that has been dreamed about for centuries. With the monumental risks involved in the development and testing of air travel, the men and women who took on the challenge brought the modern age of flight to everyone. Without their efforts we would not enjoy affordable, convenient, worldwide commercial flight.
