This one is all about recognizing an aviator that often goes unmentioned in the annals of aviation history, but for those who dig, her importance becomes undeniable. 

The JC01 is inspired by Jerrie Cobb, the first female to be accepted into NASA's Gemini space program and one of the original Gemini 12 astronaut trainees, Cobb also played a pivotal role in forging female representation in the aviation industry through the 50s, 60s and 70s. 

She set three aviation records in her 20s: the 1959 world record for non-stop long-distance flight, the 1959 world light-plane speed record, and a 1960 world altitude record for lightweight aircraft of 37,010 feet (11,280 m). In 1960, Life Magazine named her as one of nine women of the "100 most important young people in the United States".

The JC01 takes inspiration from Cobb's spaceflight activities, with its solar powered movement literally powered by the stars. Available in a range of quirky colourways, the slim profile and 38mm case size makes this an ideal unisex tribute to one of American Aviation's most loved daughters.
