This collection comprises of special limited series of the Vintage BR 126 Original Carbon watch, with dials featuring the insignia of the main countries involved in the conflict.
For example, the BR 126 RAF INSIGNIA is homage to the Royal Air Force engaged in the Second World War. The RAF had an important role, we can remember among others of the Battle of Britain and the Battle of France, both in 1940. The RAF has been an example for several allied air forces by its structure, its command and its experimented fighter pilots coming from all around the world. Produced in a limited edition of 99 pieces, the RAF Insigna watch honours all these women and men who were anxious to fight to the end without worrying about their lives to defend the democracy everywhere it exists. Through this collection, only sold within the UK, the RAF Insignia, which appeared on the wings and fuselage of Second World War planes, now plays a fitting tribute to its heroes.

Inspired by timepieces from the 1940s, the BR 126 Insignia uses the latest technologies to combine the authenticity of vintage watches with the legibility principles of an instrumentation panel. While its round 41 mm diameter steel case is reminiscent of wristwatches from the period, the matte black PVD finish is inspired by the color of cockpit instruments.

Preventing reflections was of vital importance to ensure the perfect visibility of the dials. The white hands and index marks of the BR 126 Insignia are covered in a photo-luminescent coating, to ensure optimum legibility both day and night. The ultra-curved glass gives the watch a vintage look. Unlike the original version, it is made from highly resistant sapphire crystal, reminiscent of the intensive use of on-board flight instrumentation. Incorporating an automatic movement, the watch is water resistant to 100 meters and is worn on a black rubber strap.
