Named after the Rolls Royce powered Avon turbojet engine that powered it, the Avon chronograph is replete with design cues and inspiration taken directly from the Hawker Hunter aircraft.
To pronounce the engine's influence, the watch features a slanted serrated bezel across the 45mm case. The case is crafted out of solid stainless steel and features a hardened mineral lens. The crown itself is like an engine of its own, echoing the aesthetic cues seen on the bezel and is paired with matching piston like chronograph pushers.
Bold skeletonized “fleiger” hands are modern in concept yet familiar in function and rotate across the cockpit inspired multi-layered dial with clear luminous baton markings and tachymeter read out on the inside tension ring.
Strapped to the wrist with a vintage inspired hand-stitched leather strap, this is a wearable, functional and remarkably detailed piece of watchmaking.
