AVI-8 Flyboy Eagle Squadron Bronze Pilot Watch with an Automatic Movement, AR Sapphire Crystal #AV-4071-02

The Eagle Squadrons were three fighter squadrons of the Royal Air Force (RAF) formed with volunteer pilots from the United States during the early days of World War II (prior to America's entry into the war in December 1941.

The AVI-8 Flyboy Eagle Squadron Automatic watch pays tribute to the squadron with a classic pilot watch that has been forged out of a bronze (a patina occurs as the watch ages). It is imagined with both history and technology creating a timepiece that is a very wearable homage to this chapter in the heroism of military aviation.

The 39 diameter bronze case has a 20mm lug width that sits comfortably on your wrist with a size that is similar to the squadron pilot watches worn during the war. A flat sapphire lens offers a scratch resistant clear window to the dial. The dial itself offers legibility and clarity an it has Swiss SuperLuminova on the hands and hour markers. The Eagle Squadron watch is powered by a custom modified Seiko TMI NH35 self-winding automatic movement that also hand winds. The watch is water resistant to 50 meters.

The watch hugs the wrist with a vintage, horizontal hand-stitched leather strap but also comes packed with another genuine leather military-style strap. The Flyboy Eagle Squadron Bronze comes packed in a handsome canvas covered field like box and makes for a superb watch for enthusiast and collector alike.
