Dutch Forces – Pilot Watches

About a year ago, the Dutch fashion brand “Dutch Forces” was launched. Acording to their own website: “A brand with rich symbolism, rituals and traditional decorations from the Navy, Army and Air Force together.” Looking at the logo of the brand its very obvious, as its a slightly modernised Dutch Airforce Patch. But its not just the logo, also the products itself and the marketing. Dutch Forces offers clothing and accessories but mainly it are the watches that appeal to us.

With pricing starting at around 50 euros till about 350 euros (and everything in between) it is an accessible brand with an excellent value for money. Many watches have something special, whether it’s an engraved Patch or a time zone chronograph. The latest products are the “336 transport squadron watch” and the “Classical dual timer” especially in the 336 watch is clearly inspired by the logo of the squadron shown because its shown on the clock-face.

Romain Hugault Graphic Novels

Above the clouds Regis Hautiere (Scenario), Romain Hugault (Artwork)

The French graphic Novell “Above the clouds” brings you to the world of two pilots, Ferron Pierre Luke and Allan Thompson. It’s a classic Aviator story with truly beautiful cinematic artwork and an amazing sense of detail. Above the clouds these friends share their passion for flying and at the ground they share the love for the same woman, which of course brings the necessary voltage (literally and figuratively)

Aviation style commercials

Breitling Travolta

Breitling Travolta

Some commercials are just awesome, they simply work. You may almost call them short movies that inspire to choose a brand. This website is about Aviation and lifestyle (as probably known) and gladly there are some brands that just focus on that, or profile themselves as Aviator suppliers. Today I saw the new Breitling commercial and really loved it! This simply works; A P-51, an exotic location, a pretty girl, a bike, what else can you wish for… right a Breitling! From Breitling we are used to get these stylish commercials. But gladly there are more brands that know how to inspire.
Check out these samples of aircraft and aviation in commercials.

Viva Aerobus Calender

Viva Aerobus Calendario

Viva Aerobus Calendario

Earlier I wrote a short note about the new Ryanair Calendar, I didn’t knew their Mexican daughter company “Viva Aerobus” has a similar promotion for years as well. Again it hasn’t much to do with aviation but somehow this cheap way of advertising draws  attention in mysterious ways (or at least my attention). There are also more recent calendars but the teaser movies are less good. Also they are less strict with the rules to apply as a model. Because they dont even have to be in the company staff (not even that!) This website is about Aviation so at least some Avation has to be involved 😉
