This limited edition run commemorating the epic Battle of Britain,

which perhaps stands as the most seminal moment of air combat during the Second World War,

is a labour of design and detail that has taken more than a year of meticulous research, design and production.

The many details inherent inside the 4046 make this more than a timepiece.

It is in part a wearable testament to the Battle itself.

The 43mm diameter case is a classic vintage pilot watch shape replete with genuine scratch resistant sapphire lens

and coin edged crown. Carefully hand polished on the bezel for an elegant and high-end look.

With 1963 aircraft involved in the Battle of Britain, we decided to produce exactly 1963 pieces

which represent each aircraft and the fearless pilots who manned them.

Running the left side of the case is an individually applied plate that is hand inscribed with each watches unique run number.

Each owner of this timepiece will belong to a very select group of watch fans and collectors.

Down the right side of the case is the marking RF D. The RF referring to the famed Polish 303 squadron

which was the highest scoring Hurricane squadron during the Battle of Britain.

The flared coin edged crown has a vintage like machined look and is topped with an engraved roundel

completing the side view of the case which mimics the side view of the Hurricanes.

The dial is an intriguing mix of depth and detail.

The base panel captures the concentric circles outline of the RAF upon a three armed panel which lifts the 12, 4 and 8 hour indexes.

A raised tension ring demarcates the minutes with the lower layer embossed

with a subtle horizontal pattern indicating 5 minute intervals in vintage 1940s typography.

The hour and minute hands take obvious reference from the propellers

found on the Hurricane down to the contrasting blade tips painted on.

The see-through exhibition caseback gives view to the workhorse reliability of the Miyota 8215, 21 jewel

self-winding automatic movement that has been painstakingly customised with a cutaway rotor in the shape of a Hurricane.

The Hurricane 4046 comes strapped with a beautifully supple double lined leather Nato strap

and is boxed in our iconic field box style packaging alongside an extra nylon Nato for extra versatility.
