Askania Elly Beinhorn: Honouring Germany’s aviation pioneer
excerpt by Montredo, August 5, 2020
In a sense, Elly Beinhorn was to 20th century aviation what Marie Curie was to chemistry: a woman who unwaveringly and successfully stood her ground in a male domain. Beinhorn thereby managed to go down in history as one of Germany’s most reckless and gifted pilots.
With an eponymous watch collection, the Berlin-based watch manufacturer Askania dedicates a variety of models to this German flying ace to preserve the memory of her dangerous undertakings.
