There's perhaps no tale more befitting of the continuation of AVI-8's Spitfire story than that of Eric "Sawn Off" Lock, a true WWII hero who was the highest scoring British-born RAF pilot in the Battle of Britain, and the inspiration behind our Spitfire Lock Chronograph.
A 42mm case is inspired by the Spitfire's famous curved silhouette, with custom flowing pushers designed to complement this feature. Taking further inspiration from the Spitfire's body, micro detailing on the case sides are designed to recreate the panels on the aircraft.
Fusing timeless and modern watchmaking aesthetics, the Lock features a clean, symmetrical and highly legible twin-register dial layout drawn from the details within the iconic Spitfire's cockpit gauges.
Powering the Lock is a tried and tested Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring a 1/5 split second readout with instant fly-back reset function, encapsulating the true art of modern watchmaking technology.
Completing the timepiece is a comfortable, handcrafted genuine leather, vintage pilot-style strap that tapers from 22mm to 20mm.
