The Battle Of Britain was one of history’s most well-recorded happenings, and while it might have taken place all the way back in 1940, its relevance lives on in the hearts and minds of those willing and able to remember. To honor the 80th anniversary of the operation, Bremont has released a one-of-a-kind watch capsule dubbed the ‘Battle Of Britain,’ commemorating the lauded military aircraft that helped to turn the tide of war.

The Battle Of Britain Collection features two unique, aircraft-inspired silhouettes. The first, an homage to the recognizable Spitfire variants flown by the country’s valiant pilots, draws heavy influence from the Smiths clocks found within. It adopts a beautifully-realized 43mm DLC coated stainless steel case, a Trip-Tick multi-piece construction, and a black DLC coating to give it a more contemporary appeal. On its rear, an etched illustration of the Supermarine Spitfire platform makes its debut. The second watch in the collection, the Hurricane, seeks to embody the essence of iconic, World War II-era design, taking on a 40mm stainless steel case, a scratch-resistant DLC-treated case barrel, and a vintage brown leather bund strap. At $18,995, the collection might cost a pretty penny, but buyers will also be eligible for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, allowing them a unique Spitfire flight experience and a personalized engraving of the date of the flight afterward. Head to Bremont’s website for more info.
