160 Years of Watchmaking
Watchmaker Dodane was established more than 160 years ago. Always with a focus on technological innovation, Dodane was a pioneer from the earliest days of aviation and in 1917 the Company supplied the then new aircraft manufacturer Dassault with an innovative reverse chronograph. Dodane is still very much a family business and the family are ‘hands on’ in every element of watchmaking production. The focus over the past few years has been very much centred in supplying NATO Air Forces with resilient time pieces. A ‘Made in France’ philosophy ensures that only the very best materials from France -Compte and Switzerland manufactured in Besancon, France are used.

Precision time keeping instruments are manufactured for the French Air Force, Air France and "Les Couyeaux Delta" ..the French Air Force’s Mirage 2000 Display Team.
