THE SKINDIVER X–15 EDITION

The Last Frontier To Space Travel

Amid the space race between the USA and the USSR, the first frontier was orbital flight. In 1960, NASA engineers defined the requirements for a rocket plane to carry on aerodynamic research from the previous X planes missions. The X-15 program was born.

Through 199 flights reaching the maximum altitude of 107.8 km (67.0 mi) and the top speed of 6,206 km/h (3,856 mph) the X-15 planes of the NASA program laid the groundwork for spacecraft flight. The 12 test pilots and pioneers from the program came from the US Air Force and NASA, some of them were wearing a Skindiver Worldtimer.

WOLBROOK WATCH COMPANY

SINCE 1949

70th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

   

WOLBROOK watches have been ticking and measuring the unforgiving seconds of high-speed flights since 1949. The most distinguished timepieces from WOLBROOK and its sister brand DOUGLAS were the SKINDIVER and the SKINDIVER “WORLDTIMER”. With advertising in Life, Time, and Esquire magazines, these “incredible” watches – as they were called in the headlines - were renowned for their water resistance and were in fact sold in a water-filled container.

After being asleep for 50 years, WOLBROOK is being resurrected in France and once again the iconic SKINDIVER watch will be assembled there.
