Named after the Rolls Royce powered Avon turbojet engine that powered it, the Hawker Hunter AV-4064 Avon Chronograph Watch is replete with design cues and inspiration taken directly from the Hawker Hunter aircraft. Carved and forged out of marine grade 316 L stainless steel and measuring 42mm in diameter, the watch opens up at the lens to display a unique dial design that echoes the machined engineered elements of the Hunter's breakthrough jet engine design. Masking the date and day display, the serrated turbine inspired layer of dial application adds a magnificent amount of depth and complexity while leaving clarity and legibility untouched. For the astute observer, both day and date fonts have been reprinted to pay homage to the 1950s and 1960s typography actually found on Hawker Hunters of the time. The bold, uniquely tooled hour and minute hands read the time off with clarity and utter precision with a contrast color detailing on the second's hand. The crown guard to the right of the watch references the front view of the Hunter's intakes, while the roundel embalmed on the crown adds another element of interest for the wearer. Hugging the watch to the wearer's wrist is a vintage designed hand-stitched leather strap which marries perfectly with the neo-classic aviation sensibilities found on this timepiece.
