The X-15 Automatic Watch was co-designed by the last-living test-pilot to ever fly the rocket-powered jet

Inspired by a true icon of American aviation, the Aeromat X-15 pays tribute to its namesake – the hypersonic rocket-powered North American X-15 jet. Designed by Aeromat’s Oscar Chabrat, who found himself absolutely fascinated by the X-15 after he discovered it (and virtually flew it) on a game of Flight Simulator, the Aeromat X-15 timepiece captures the story and the unbridled adrenaline rush of the rocket-powered X-15 aircraft on its design. The automatic watch itself comes with a stealthy, strictly no-nonsense design that uniquely captures the jet’s utilitarian surface treatment and form. It sports a titanium outer shell, the same material used in the X-15’s airframe, has a stellar jet-inspired caseback, and is entirely assembled in the US, quite like the very jet that inspired the watch.

The X-15 is a tribute to NASA’s most daring aeronautical project ever: The North American X-15.

When put side by side, the X-15 watch bears an instant resemblance to its jet counterpart. There’s something rather simple yet superior about the jet that reflects wonderfully in the watch’s pure design, which was co-created with Major General Joe H. Engle, the last living test-pilot to fly the X-15. The watch comes with a plated titanium case, an aviation-inspired watch-face with a unique seconds hand and a date window, and the special caseback, which sports a relief version of the X-15 as seen from the front, along with Major General Engle’s signature.

Sitting under a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass is the watch’s eye-catching face. Available in 4 colors – Silver Gray, NATO Green, Sky Blue, and Jet Black, the watch sports signature aviation-watch hour and minute hands, as well as a bespoke seconds hand that mimics the top-down silhouette of the X-15. The watch comes with clear numeric markings coated in Super-Luminova, along with a date window at the 3 o’clock position, and 24-hour markings for people who read military time.

Flip the watch over and you’ve got an ode to the X-15 with its silhouette in relief on the back, Major General Engle’s signature and 2-stars, and the jet’s cockpit turn-and-slip indicator made using the watch’s rotor. Speaking of the rotor, the watch is powered internally by the NH35 Seiko Automatic movement, a reliable Japanese workhorse with a power reserve of over 41 hours.

The X-15 is yet another timepiece in Aeromat’s legacy of honoring aircrafts through well-designed timepieces. This time, Aeromat focused on one of the most illustrious jets in the world – a 1959 beast that still holds the record for speed and altitude, even 62 years later. Like its namesake, the X-15 watch uses titanium in its construction, as an ode to the titanium airframe of the X-15, and comes in 4 colors as well as with 3 strap materials – leather, stainless steel mesh, and woven NATO-style straps. The watches are available on Kickstarter at a discounted price of $265 (the retail tag is at $660), and each watch ships with the 3 straps to choose from in a slick aluminum travel box. The watches are backed by a 2-year warranty (2+1 years if you grab one at the Earlybird price), and begin shipping in the first half of next year.
