1. History and Background
With 1,500 individually numbered units produced, each Flyboy Falklands 40 Meca-Quartz Limited Edition timepiece sold will contribute to this incredible charity and support those who serve and have served in the British Armed Forces and their families.
This limited edition timepiece designed in collaboration with the Royal British Legion is inspired by, and produced to support, the men and women who served in the Falklands Conflict.
2. Dial Design & Inspiration
Impeccably balanced and legible, the dial features thick applied Arabic indexes with Swiss lume, framed by a concave metallic chapter ring. Stamped at the 6 o'clock position are the coordinates of the Falkland Islands, to remember those who served 40 years ago. Completing the dial is the iconic Royal British Legion two petal poppy on the seconds hand.
Unique details to remember the brave
3. Case Design & Finishing
Measuring 40mm, a contemporary case with a serrated unidirectional bezel and aluminium ring insert offers a modern alternative to the traditional pilot's watch. A sophisticated double domed hardened mineral glass with anti-reflective coating offers a clear view into the dial. Topping the crown is a vibrant red two petal poppy enclosed in epoxy.
