The Aces Of The Air Pocket Watch Collection
Exclusively created for you
A stirring commemoration to the greatest aircraft of WWII
There was a mutual respect and camaraderie that existed between Allied and Axis airman after the war. These knights of the sky lived and died by the same code of chivalry and put their lives on the line for their countries every time they took to the skies. Now, you can honour these victory-defining aerial duels and the staggering aircraft that dominated the skies.
Geoff Nutkins is Britain’s leading aviation artist, and that’s why we have joined forces with him to display some of his most moving and evocative artworks on these magnificent silver-plated mechanical timepieces. As well as his Second World War-themed works, Geoff Nutkins also owns and runs the Shoreham Aircraft Museum, dedicated to keeping the memory alive of the brave airmen – the ‘Aces of the Air’ – that joined battle over the green fields of England during the Battle of Britain – and beyond, to D-Day and final victory in 1945!
The plane that dominated the skies
‘Give me a squadron of Spitfires’, said German fighter ace Adolf Galland to Hermann Goering when asked how he could improve the German air force, such was the importance of these incredibly designed aircraft to the Allied victory. From its first flight in 1936 to decommissioning in 1948, RJ Mitchell’s magnificent Spitfire underwent no significant design changes or upgrades. So how could we not create an exclusive silver-plated pocket watch in tribute to such an iconic aircraft – decorated with a detail from Geoff Nutkins’ stirring ‘Beachhead Patrol’ depicting two Spitfires soaring high above Normandy beaches on D-Day.

A truly formidable foe

The ultimate tribute to history’s finest
Each pocket watch in the ‘Aces of the Air’ Collection is a mechanical masterpiece, a true celebration of the watchmaker’s art. Silver-plated, beautifully finished, and perfectly coupled with one of Geoff Nutkins stunning WWII aviation images. ‘Safe Return Home’, for example, shows a powerful illustration of a de Havilland Mosquito piloted by Fl Lt Colin Perkins of 107 Squadron with the skeleton watch face itself a thing of mechanical beauty. There’s also the stirring ‘Night Reaper’ pocket watch with an image of a Bristol Beaufighter patrolling the night sky. The accompanying watch face’s chequered design echoes the criss-crossing searchlights of the cover image. Add to that ‘Doodlebug’, ‘Lone Wolf’ and more and you have the makings of an inspirational collection.
No detail in this collection has been overlooked. Each silver-plated mechanical watch perfectly complements Geoff’s stunning artworks. This is a must-have for any military enthusiast or avid collector. But don’t just take our word for it, order now and see for yourself!
