The MACH 1 will return in a Gen2.0 iteration in December 2021. See details here.

Pilot styled watches are big, bold, and built for one purpose - excellent legibility both inside and outside the cockpit. The MACH 1 Civilian Stainless Steel is a classic yet modern pilot watch. Designed along the lines of German Flieger A or "Type A Flieger", the MACH 1C proudly carries the Indian Air Force fin-flash at the 9H position, a MiG afterburner inspired winding crown, cockpit inspired numerals made of 3D Swiss superluminova for excellent night-time visibility, and an engraving of MiGs flying in formation on the caseback.

In December 1971, the Bangladesh liberation movement in East Pakistan was at its peak. The enemy Air Force launched pre-emptive strikes on Indian Air Force bases in the Western and Eastern fronts. It was during these crucial times that the MiG 21 FL Type 77 (NATO Codename FISHBED) played a critical role in defending India's airspace. Type 77 was the first supersonic fighter jet of the IAF to be built in India by HAL. It created an air-superiority umbrella so fierce that the enemy Air Force was forced to ground their planes. After serving the IAF for five decades, the MiG 21 Type 77 retired in 2013. The MACH 1 Collection pays tribute to this iconic plane.
