The corporation might be long gone, but Pan Am’s blue and white globe logo continues to enjoy a life of its own. Not only is it an iconic example of great graphic design, but the airline has also become the poster child for large corporations that went belly up. This Pan Am watch, however, tries to remember the better times, and prominently features the company’s signature blue and white color scheme, and the aforementioned globe logo.
Its 2-inch face includes digital and analog date displays, dual-time zone indicators and even a day-of-the-week display marked with a tiny circling airplane and curved jet stream. How cute, it almost makes you forget about those thousands of lost jobs. The watch also has luminescent accents on the face for those overnight red-eye flights, a matching blue and white leather band and is 3 ATM water-resistant. And if the $395 price tag from the Wireless Catalog seems a bit steep for you, just remember the watch does come with the mini Pan Am travel bag pictured above.
