Inspired by an American hero, the Hitchcock Automatic pays tribute to a Lafayette Escadrille member and national polo champion who directly influenced the development of the P-51 Mustang during WWII.
Inspired by an American hero, the Hitchcock Automatic pays tribute to the Lafayette Escadrille member and national polo champion who directly influenced the development of the P-51 Mustang during WWII.
The Hitchcock Automatic is built from our iconic 43mm P-51 Mustang inspired case, featuring a crown guard echoing the engine exhaust of the aircraft. With a beautifully contoured shape, it has been designed to look and feel comfortable.
Drawn from both the cockpit and body of the P-51 Mustang, the Hitchcock's multilayered dial blends modern watchmaking sophistication with vintage aviation elements to create a clear and legible dial.
Powering the Hitchcock is the ever-reliable and accurate NH35 self-winding movement. In a tribute to Hitchcock's heroics outside the cockpit, the case back features the words "Ten Goal Tommy," referencing his 10-goal handicap in polo.
Securing this timepiece to the wrist is our instantly identifiable padded genuine leather strap, inspired by the design of the P-51 Mustang's seats.
Given his prominence and accomplishments in polo, the colourways of the Hitchcock Automatic are suitably inspired by the various polo clubs Hitchcock represented over the years.
