today as they were originally. Revue Thommen watches are composed of equal parts of
technology and tradition.
In fact, many of the watchmakers more famous designs, such as the Presidents Watch from the Cricket collection, are faithfully recreated today, having maintained all of their functionality and appeal.

The contemporary version of the Cricket is fitted with a replica of the original 1947 mechanical movement.

The Airspeed collection features such aviation requirements as altimeters; analog displays for hour and minute; digital displays for second, day, date, two timers, chronograph and alarm, with a replica flight instrument dial in water-resistant titanium or steel cases and double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
