Wow! Look at this awesome closeup of one of the large watches the Tiger Claw pilots wear in Wing Commander. Time for some more research!
28 minutes later: I am now a member of a Storm Watch collecting group on Facebook.
Here's what we've learned so far! The watches were from a British company called Storm Watches which still makes cool sci-fi looking watches. They show up in the credits:
Knowing that, I found a Storm Watch community on Facebook that has preserved 1990s catalogs! The watch R33VE kindly filmed is the "Camera". From there, AD and I started looking for frames in the movie where we could see the watches.
Maniac and Blair are both certainly wearing the "Navigator" which seems to be one of the company's most popular designs.
It also looks kind of like those scooping nurse robots that delivered Luke and Leia.
We're also pretty sure Angel has a rarer storm watch called the "HMP".
And then we've noticed other watches on Mr. Obutu, Paladin, Polanski and Captain Sansky but don't have enough to make a call on them yet.
One more unidentified watch spotted, on the Tiger Claw's helmsman (actor Fraser James, his nametag reads DUCE).
