Project: Airain Type 20 Re-Edition

Launched November 24, 2020

Airain was one of the selected suppliers of the Type 20 model for the French Army. The all new Airain Type 20 Re-Edition faithfully matches in every detail the design and specifications of the original 1950’s Type 20, including a hand-wound column wheel chronograph with flyback function and countdown bezel.

Because the Type 20 Re-Edition is a reinterpretation of the original, the degree of participation in this project is limited.

Project: Lebois & Co Heritage Chronograph

Launched April 22, 2021

Chronographs are an important aspect in the history of Lebois & Co. We are excited to start the journey of our third watch model; the long awaited and much requested re-issue of our vintage chronograph. It is only logical, therefore, that we want to develop such an important watch together with our community of fans and watch enthusiasts.

Project: Airain Sous-Marine

Launched March 29, 2022

The name Sous-Marine itself will tell the connaisseurs among us that this watch is suitable for underwater use. The original Sous-Marine was advertised as highly reliable and accurate while submerged. An absolute must-have for (skin) divers at the time.

Nowadays, the original Sous-Marine has become an extremely rare sight, and those who are lucky to own one are reluctant to give it up. And they don’t have to, because we are going to start producing a brand-new Sous-Marine.
