Founded in 1934 by the Dodane family, Montres Airain gained fame for reliable timepieces. It supplied Type 20 watches to the French army from the 1960s, notably for ALAT helicopter pilots. In 2020, Airain released the Type 20 Re-Edition, faithfully replicating the original 1950s design. 2024 sees the revival of Airain’s iconic diver, the Sous-Marine.
