This is the limited edition timepiece that commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer, the watch is decorated with details inspired by the iconic feat of arms that pitted intrepid RAF airmen against the three-month Axis aerial assault of 1940. Laurel leaves symbolizing victory surround the face’s 60-minute and 24-hour subdials while a golden top-down profile of the revered Spitfire points to the Noon hour, reminding your recipient that this unique gift still honors The Few. Battle of Britain is etched into the face above the 60-second chronograph subdial while large Roman numerals swept by sensible hands evoke the enduring reliability of Big Ben. The reverse includes Churchill‘s famous quote “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” along with a replica signature of RAF flying ace Sir Douglas Bader. Its splash-resistant, gold-plated stainless steel case secures the precise Swiss quartz movement while its scratch-resistant mineral crystal protects the face. One of 4,999 produced, each watch comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The 3/4"-wide leather band fits wrists 5" to 8 1/2" in circumference. Case 1 3/4" Diam. x 1/4" D. (4 oz.)
