The Retrograde Chronograph pays suitable tribute to the famed jet without being cluttered and fussy in its carefully considered design. The Retrograde edition seemingly brings the instrument panel and cockpit of the Hawker Hunter to the wrist of the wearer with a homage and representation that is still utterly practical and balanced as a timepiece.
A sturdy yet precisely finished marine grade stainless steel case houses a Japanese retrograde split time chronograph that sits under the dial.
The angled off squared shape echoes the key pieces of the Hunter's own instrumentation, the reference to the famed military jet that first flew in service for the RAF in the early 1950s.
The dial is a perfectly designed assembly of indentations, tension rings and carefully positioned subdial frames.
Complementing the dial features are piston like pushers that continue the look and feel of this watch as a piece of military instrumentation.
Snugly strapped to the wrist with a hand stitched vintage genuine leather strap – the Hawker Hunter Retrograde Chronograph is an impressive, functional and unique aviation inspired timepiece like no other.
