Soaring over English skies in 1940, Royal Air Force pilots knew they were all that stood between the British people below and the impending Nazi invasion. Day after day, these brave men took their Hurricanes and Spitfires to the air, relying on nothing and no one but their instruments and each other, to engage the invaders, defend their countrymen, and change the course of history by handing Hitler his first defeat of World War II.
“Never, in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few,” said Winston Churchill.
The Co-Pilot Men’s Watch is inspired by what was accomplished in the Battle of Britain. This classic aviation-style watch is not for the faint of heart. It features markings to calculate velocity, and a stylish sepia-toned dial carrying three classic complications: 24-hour at 3 o’clock and chronograph 60-minute at 9 o’clock. The Co-Pilot’s look is completed by a vintage-style distressed brown leather strap.
Those brave pilots flew solo, but their instruments were invaluable. It’s where they looked for confirmation, what they relied on when in trouble. We want our Co-Pilot Men’s Watch to fulfill that role for you, and that’s why we’ve priced it at a low-flying price for a high-flying timepiece.
