BOTTISHAM AUTOMATIC LIMITED EDITION

2 reviews
$380 Regular price

The Bottisham Automatic Limited Edition pays tribute to 361st Fighter Group, United States Eighth Air Force, comprising the 374th, 375th and 376th Fighter Squadrons, which operated out of RAF Bottisham Airfield.

In particular, the “Bottisham Four” was a famous photograph featuring four P-51's in a majestic formation that became perhaps one of the most iconic representations of the eventual airborne superiority of the Allies in WW2.

The watch that carries the AVI-8 brand into the realm of the P-51 is a suitably superb watch that imbibes aesthetic cues from the lines, details and form of the Mustang.

A 43mm case features a curved crown guard with detailing that references the engine exhaust of the aircraft. The case has fine brush finishing on the bezel with articulated lugs that flow fluidly into the bulbous yet streamlined case shape. A slightly convexed scratch resistant sapphire lens tops the bezel, creating an altogether aerodynamic profile in shape and form.

The dial takes its cues from the cockpit and outer insignia of the Mustang. A multi-layered dial offers up cutaway arabic markers at the 3, 6, 9 and 0 hours with baton markers in-between. The effect is a clearly marked, no-nonsense dial layout that speaks to immediate legibility.

Each hour and minute marker, along with the sword shaped hands, are generously lathered with high grade Swiss lume for low light visibility and clarity.

The genuine leather strap that hugs the wrist is custom designed and offers subtly stitched details to continue the overall aesthetic harmony of the watch.

For even greater versatility, each watch comes with an additional nylon and canvas, Velcro-release cuff-like strap. This option provides a snug, ever more comfortable and durable fit, ensuring that the P-51 Mustang Bottisham Automatic Limited Edition is no mere souvenir but a truly robust piece of aviation inspired watchmaking.

Each watch is uniquely numbered as part of a limited edition of 1490 pieces.
