I recently put my hands on a spectacular watch from a little-known brand called Dodane 1857. For five generations now the brand is owned and operated by a French family of the same name — Dodane is prounounced “do-dan” with a long “o” (like “no”) except with a smooth French accent (which I lack). In addition to supplying its watches to French air force pilots, the company also produces cockpit instruments for the French air force (learn/see more on Dodane’s website). I reviewed the Dodane Type 21 Flyback Chronograph, the brand’s signature model, and what to say except that I sooooooooooo want to own one of these watches. The look, the feel, the “character” of this watch is immense — you really feel like you have something special on your wrist when wearing this watch. The Dodane Type 21 Flyback Chrono price is about $4,000, and Alexis at Totally Worth It will hook you up if you want to buy one. Now…on to the review!
