AVI-8 presents the limited edition Hawker Hunter Duke Chronograph in partnership with the Royal British Legion to support the remarkable work they do for those who serve and have served in the British Armed Forces and their families.
Bold and clear Swiss lume applied indexes are purposefully complemented by cleanly executed pops of red inspired by the Royal British Legion’s poppy. Inset subdials and an inner turning countdown bezel provide for a watch built with performance and accuracy in mind. The dial is completed by numerous subtly printed two petal poppies lathered in Swiss lume, offering a magical spectacle in low light conditions.
At 44mm, the substantial brushed case is balanced by elegantly tapered lugs with subtly polished chamfers. Modern inverted conical crowns are designed to pronounce the Hunter’s engine, yet remain functional for ease of use. The Royal British Legion’s iconic two petal poppy is finely etched on the pusher at the 2 o’clock position.
Powering the limited edition timepiece is the esteemed and dependable Japanese VK series meca-quartz chronograph calibre. This movement comes with a smooth sweep seconds hand, crisp pushers and instant zero snap back reset on the chronograph.
A custom-made and handcrafted premium genuine leather rally style strap adds a sense of nostalgia and masculine vintage appeal.
Each watch comes with an additional nylon NATO strap with an embroidered red two petal poppy drawn from the Royal British Legion, allowing you to effortlessly switch up your style.
This watch created in partnership with the Royal British Legion comes in a stunning canvas wrapped box. Each individually numbered timepiece is part of a limited edition of just 300 pieces.
The retail price of this special edition timepiece is $350. £15 from the sale of this product will go to Royal British Legion Trading Limited (Company no. 4783730 registered in England and Wales) which gives its taxable profits to The Royal British Legion (Charity no. 219279) and Poppyscotland (Scottish Charity No. SC014096), according to where sales are made.
