George Bulman, Group Captain Paul Ward Spencer Bulman was the chief test pilot for Hawker Aircraft.
Bulman flew for the Royal Flying Corps (later Royal Air Force) and was awarded the Military Cross
and the Air Force Cross for his bravery and service to the country.
Following his retirement from active service, Bulman became a test pilot for
and became a director of the Hawker Aircraft Company.
He worked closely with the company’s chief designer, Sir Sidney Camm
and had tested many of Camm’s prototypes, including the Hawker Hurricane.
Measuring 45 mm in diameter this Bulman edition watch has a deliberately subdued look at first glance
with a bead blasted matte finish to the case.
The dial harmonizes a classic pilot watch outlook with a cockpit inspired design.
Instrumentation like chronograph subdials sit at the 12 and 6 o’clock position
with a raised embossed tone on tone roundel at the 9 o’clock position and date display at the 3 o’clock position.
Arabic and baton shaped hour markers frame the watch perfectly with cutaway
detailing with a luminous under dial giving clarity and legibility in all lighting conditions.
Classically shaped arrow or “Fleiger ” style hands are suitably lumed and are precisely proportioned and balanced on the watch.
The strong bold lines belie a subtlety and layering of the dial which includes a finely distressed
layer of dial work which marries well with the vintage military inspired aesthetics of the watch.
A vintage hand stitched leather is similarly distressed to create and to deliver
more character with wear while offering a supple and comfortable fit on the wrist.
Water resistant to 5ATM and powered by a precision Japanese Seiko TMI module chronograph movement,
the watch is as much a dependable piece of wrist instrumentation for every day wear
as it is a suitable tribute to the Hurricane and one of the many unsung heroes attached to its legacy.
