This new watch collection from Paul Picot celebrates the Legend of Atlantic Transvolata, a real pride for the Italian engineering technical expertise. In 1933, formation of 25 seaplanes Savoia Marchetti S55X set off from Orbetello for a round trip to reach Chicago and New York and back to Rome. This expedition was organized by Italo Balbo to celebrate the first decade of the Italian Regia Aereonautica and was an opportunity for propaganda at the Universal Exhibition in Chicago: Century of Progress.
