Since 2019, we’ve seen Bangalore Watch Company evolve it’s line up of sport watches from the Mach 1, a pilot watch paying tribute to an iconic Indian Air Force jet fighter, to the Cover Drive, a stylish everyday watch inspired by India’s national sport (Cricket). Bangalore Watch Company is incredibly proud of their nation’s achievements and culture, with their country’s history deeply rooted into the design of every watch in their catalog. This week, Bangalore Watch Company, launches (pun partially intended) it’s newest addition to their catalog, a twin crown, dual time, titanium watch aptly named the Apogee, to celebrate fifty years of Indian space exploration.
Apogee refers to the furthest point of a satellite’s orbit and for Bangalore Watch Company, this signifies how far they have come since their inception in 2017. The Apogee is an intriguing watch for its twin crowns and space-inspired design. Usually, two crowns on a watch is a character trait of a super compressor diver, and although I’m sure the Apogee can hold its own in open water (it’s equipped with 100M WR and a screw down crown), its design personifies space travel and exploration.
