The Eagle Squadrons were three fighter squadrons of the Royal Air Force (RAF) formed with volunteer pilots from the United States during the early days of World War II (prior to America's entry into the war in December 1941).

By 1942, following the attack on Pearl Harbour, the Americans had joined the war effort, and the three squadrons formed were transferred to the United States Air Force. Nonetheless, the bravery and sacrifice by a small group of Americans has not been forgotten and is commemorated by The Eagle Squadrons Memorial located in Grosvenor Square opposite a statue of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane Eagle Squadron Calendar Limited Edition pays tribute to the Eagle Squadron through a classic pilot watch forged out of a traditional silhouette. It is imagined with both history and technology, creating a timepiece that is a perfectly wearable homage to this chapter in the heroism of military aviation.

Measuring at 43mm in diameter, the Eagle Squadron has a deliberately subdued look at first glance with a finely brushed finish to the case. A domed mineral lens with anti-reflective coating tops the case offering a clear window to the dial.

The dial itself offers legibility and clarity with the vertically brushed finish complemented by multiple layers of Swiss luminous painted Arabic indexes. Vintage debossed sub-dials sit at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions with a raised plaque featuring the Eagle Squadron emblem at 6 o’clock.

On the back, a solid steel case back with an engraved Eagle Squadron emblem protects the reliable multi-function Swiss parts movement powering the watch.

Nodding to true pilot watches from 1950s, the outer ring of the dial features a rotating bezel with a functional circular slide rule – a tool used by pilots to calculate important information such as ground speed or gasoline consumption.

The watch hugs the wrist with an elegantly brushed solid stainless steel bracelet with solid deployant clasp. Each watch is paired with an additional supple yet sturdy genuine leather NATO strap.

As we pay tribute to the Eagle Squadrons, the coloursways have been suitably named after the counties in which the Eagle Squadrons were based. Limited to 1000pcs, this unique and classy timepiece is wrapped in a handsome giftbox along with a solid steel plaque, extra strap and strap changing tool, making for a fantastic watch appealing to collectors and enthusiasts alike.
