The watch is fitted with the nato strap which I have worn it with. All documentation will be supplied, cufflinks (unworn), etc. A Bristol Blenheim, a Supermarine Spitfire and a Hawker Hurricane that all flew during the summer of 1940 are incorporated into this remarkable timepiece.
Each of these Battle of Britain aircraft forms a propeller blade in the rotor and are complemented by a veneer of original wood from the Shuttleworth Collections 1917 SE5a which can be found at its centre.
