Inspired by the unsung hero of the Battle of Britain, AVI-8 created the AV-4011 Hawker Hurricane Watch after that reliable Air Force fighter aircraft. The stainless steel housing material rests on a durable leather strap, which creates a rustic, timeless look. Mineral crystal displays the Japanese quartz analog movement and date indicator, and it securely closes with a buckle. This watch is also submersible down to 165 feet so you're free to swim or shower in fashion.
AVI-8 timepieces are inspired by both the men and the machines of some of the most significant periods in aviation history. Paying tribute to the iconic aircraft and the brave men who flew them, these timepieces are a reminder of the guts, determination and sheer will of those who pushed minds and muscle in the development of cutting edge aircraft whose role was critical to the very defense of a nation. Each timepiece is designed with the innovative spirit that permeates the world of aviation.
The classic aviation inspired chronograph. Classic case shape lines house detailed dials, colours, and graphics that celebrate the spirit and adventurism of an era gone by. Straightforward hour indexing, bold hands, and detailed vintage designed subdials of the chronograph are all blended to create a timepiece that is elegant in design, precise in performance and stylish in its comment on the wearer.
Strapped with a genuine leather strap that is both dressy yet casual, this is a timepiece that nods to chivalry and performance.
The Hurricane, produced for the Royal Air Force by Hawker Aircraft Ltd, is a single-seater fighter aircraft that saw combat throughout World War II. Though often overshadowed by the Spitfire, it was the Hawker Hurricane that was truly the most acclaimed, successful and reliable aircraft for the Allied Forces.
Many consider the Hurricane the unsung hero of the Battle of Britain. It delivered more enemy kills in this crucial victory than any other aircraft combined.

It is what it is. An extremely affordable Quartz watch representing Britain but parts are Japanese or Chinese. Got it on lightning deal for $79 so you can't lose for that price. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Scott Mance
