TheRAF-Cpays homage to the RAF at 100 years. Housed in a precision billet machined 316L stainless steel body with eight polished vertically cut ball-nose flutes and match machined ZW DSL lugs, the blue dial features a striking representation of the invasion stripes displayed on the underwing and empennage of British aircraft during various campaigns.
Recorded on the dial is the location and date of the firstRAF Photo Reconnaissance (PR) squadron.The WW2 PR squadrons played an innovative and vitally important role in reconnoitering and photographing strategic positions ensuring that Britain stayed informed. Their skilled pilots flew long and dangerous missions deep into enemy territory in fast, unarmed high-altitude blue liveried aircraft. The dial is complimented by our simple SuperLuminova X1 aviation hour and minute hands and red tipped sweep.
RAF-C is powered by the beautiful ETA 2824 automatic movement ensuring it keeps perfect time. The radial brushed, pierced and engraved exhibition back and distinctive locking crown depict the form and elements of the iconic Supermarine Spitfire. The watch is fitted with A/R coated front and rear crystals and a ZW handmade RAF blue Horween Chromexcel strap with engraved, brushed and polished stainless steel ARD buckle.
