The design of the clock follows the original Askania pilots clock of 1930 consciously. Crucial recognition characteristics were realized on the clock face of the Askania "Cougar." Hours and minute hands correspond to the original. The original second pointer of the six o'clock position finds itself as increased central second pointer.
The squadron badge of the 3rd Squadron Special Air Mission Wing MOD was put in beside the stroke "COUGAR." Parts of the Squadron badge are laid out with light-masses.
The project started March 2006.

A broad range of quality products is developed over the years, constantly at a standard far ahead of its time.
