The next Generation


Reliability and robustness – this has been part of our DNA for 170 years. Our engineers and designers are now developing the next generation Airspeed. Solid, functional, strictly no frippery. For people who take the highest responsibility for themselves and others.

Next Generation AIRSPEED

Swiss Made Reliability

Our DNA includes the know-how gained from developing on-board instruments for aircraft. In 1916, THOMMEN supplied the first aircraft clock to the Swiss Air Force. The robustness and reliability of clocks, altitude and airspeed instruments were crucial for the pilots of several air forces.

Next Generation AIRSPEED

Robust shock resistance

The ultimate goal for our engineers: robust shock protection. The result: three additional rubber rings protect the movement. The dial is fixed with three additional screws and together with the movement ring guarantees unique robustness. The DNA of THOMMEN: no compromise in reliability and robustness.

Why is a THOMMEN pilot watch also a diver’s watch? Because reliability and robustness are part of our DNA. And because the next generation of Airspeed has the qualities of a mission watch for people who take the highest responsibility for themselves and others.



The Revue Thommen Airspeed watch collection from the watch factory founded in 1853 by Gédéon Thommen is based on almost a century of tradition in the manufacture of flight instruments and pilot watches.


In 1915, Thommens Uhrenfabrik AG received an order from Switzerland for the development of cockpit instruments to be installed in the first aircraft of the newly established Swiss Air Force (Schweizer Luftwaffe). In 1916, Thommens Uhrenfabrik AG delivered its first aircraft clock to the Swiss Air Force.


In 1936, Thommens Uhrenfabrik AG developed altimeters as well as airspeed and vertical speed indicators for the multipurpose C-35 biplane produced in Switzerland for the Swiss Air Force by the state-owned Eidgenössische Konstruktionswerkstätte (Federal Construction Works).

In the second half of the 20th century, Revue Thommen AG rapidly expanded its production of flight instruments and equipment for the aviation industry, supplying over 80 leading civil and military aircraft manufacturers. It wasn’t only the Swiss Air Force that trusted in Revue Thommen watches and flight instruments.

Revue Thommen on-board chronographs were used in the Swiss Air Force, in the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter of the German Air Force, and in the helicopters and the Tornado of the Royal Air Force. What’s more, the paratroopers of the Swiss Army performed jumps with Revue Thommen watches and THOMMEN altimeters.

Several Airspeed models were developed under the brand Revue Thommen Airspeed, which were popular among customers: quartz, mechanical and automatic watches and chronographs.
