The winged hourglass has a history of navigation and timekeeping excellence. Aviators relied on their prowess as it kept them instyle and in the right place in the air. Charles Lindbergh even helped to create a watch after his flight across the Atlantic that would help pilots calculate their exact position in the sky. Originally the company was started by Auguste Agassiz in 1832 and has since risen to the top of the timepiece game. They were even the first to provide a timer in the modern iteration of the olympics in 1896.
