Worn & Wound
The Custom A-13A Pilot Chronograph Built to Survive a Spy Plane
Chronographs, espionage, physics, aviation: this story from the Worn & Wound archives is filled with some of our favorite things. From February of 2018, this story from Mark McArthur-Christie details the process of Paolo Fanton’s quest to get his A-13A Pilot Chronograph ready to fly in a U-2 spy plane at altitudes in excess of 60,000 feet. It’s complicated, fascinating, and not for anyone with an aversion to heights.
