AV-4011 HAWKER HURRICANE CAMOUFLAGE
The Camouflage edition of the Hawker Hurricane pays tribute to the dogged workhorse of a fighter plane that helped deliver an Allied victory in WW2. Sometimes overshadowed by the acclaimed Spitfire, it was nonetheless the Hurricane that in fact delivered more enemy kills during the Battle of Britain.
This chronograph watch that bears the Hurricane name is a stunning timepiece that offers a clean round solid, 316 L corrosion resistant, marine grade stainless steel case housing a layered camouflage print dial referencing those used on Hurricanes during WW2. The open dial has a tachymeter calibrated around the outer lip of the dial with the dial itself boldly and clearly marked for excellent legibility.
Chronograph subdials give the watch added functionality with split time measurements available through the precision mechanics of the quality Japanese Seiko TMI VD57 movement and a date window at the 3 o'clock position.
Strapping this excellent instrument to the wrist is a vintage inspired matte finished genuine leather strap with stainless steel rivets creating in all a superb timepiece that is also a sophisticated souvenir of aviation history.
