RESURRECTING A FORGOTTEN LEGEND
An often-forgotten legend, the Hawker Typhoon was a powerful, potent ground attack aircraft that redressed the balance in mainland Europe during WWII. To support the Typhoon's legacy, AVI-8 is honoured to release a limited edition timepiece in partnership with the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (HTPG).
Featuring bold oversized Arabic and baton indexes with Swiss lume, the dial is distinctly legible. Subdials with instrument-style frames are drawn straight from the cockpit of RB396.
Measuring 42mm, the stainless steel case with knurled details on the pushers and crown has been expertly crafted for style and durability. A hardened mineral lens with anti-reflective coating provides a perfect view into the dial.
Utilising a Japanese chronograph quartz movement, this timekeeping instrument is armed with both reliability and precision.
Each timepiece sold will support the work of the HTPG as they restore Hawker Typhoon RB396, the only surviving combat veteran example of the type known to exist. The aircraft will symbolise the heritage, educate the public and become a permanent memorial to all the crews, of all nationalities, that made the ultimate sacrifice operating the Typhoon.
