MALM AIR FORCE WATCHES

As a rather small country, Sweden has been a world-leading and highly respected manufacturer of military aircrafts for more than 80 years. Famous for their iconic designs and state of the art technology, Swedish fighter jet production challenges the world's largest nations in combat aircraft performance.


Just like the Swedish made fighter jets we at MALM are from the city of Linköping. We are very proud of our collaborations with the Swedish military and consider it to be a very honorable task to develop new wrist watches together with the talanted men and women in the Swedish armed forces. It also gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to the huge Swedish military aircraft heritage and at the same time contribute to the development of real Swedish watchmaking.


Together with each fighter jet squadron or helicopter wing we design proper pilot watches with well thought out details collected from cockpits, gauges and shapes from the fighter jets or helicopters. Suppliers, calibers and materials are carefully evaluated and selected in order to meet the high standards. We do the assembly work and service in-house. The military collections are offered exclusively to those who are eligable. 


Do you spot a project for which you're eligible? Or are you and your organisation or military community interested in talking to MALM about creating a unique watch? Use our contact form here or send us an email to info@malmwatches.com.
