The De Pol Story
In 2014, Robert De Pol started the De Pol Watch Company. He was a fighter pilot and an American patriot. Robert combined his love for the United States, passion for aviation, and obsession with watches to build a quality product for use in the cockpit.
Robert says, “I see how aviators react to watches. Your watch tells the story of your life __ where you’ve been and the experiences you’ve had.” He also entered the market at a better price point than other custom options.
The LSO Model for Accurate Timing
The LSO model is specifically designed to improve the efficiency and precision of timing landings aboard aircraft carriers. During a real-life situation, an LSO is a landing signal officer responsible for timing and recording landings within seconds of one another.
The LSO face features four colors around the bezel, green, yellow, brown, and red. Green is the goal, yellow indicates too early or too late, and brown and red are not on time. An officer can measure himself or herself, or in training with the LSO model.
