AVI-8 | HAWKER HARRIER II

AV-4056-03

In the annals of aviation history, perhaps no fighter plane stirred as much controversy, excitement and technological wonder as the Hawker Harrier “JumpJet”, which flew for the Royal Air Force and for the US Air Force during the latter part of the 20th Century. With the stunning ability to navigate improvised landing environment the aircrafts vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) capabilities propelled the Harrier into an almost iconic status in representing the new age of limited combat set against the spectre of the Cold War during the 70s and 80s. This incredible aircraft, powered by the famed Rolls Royce Pegasus series of engines then, provides the aesthetic backdrop for the newest collection of timepieces from Avi-8. The case is Solid 316 L stainless steel that has been forged, machined, drilled and assembled with an anti-reflective sapphire coated mineral lens for durability and visibility. On the underside of the watch a jet turbine carved caseback makes clear the leitmotif of the 4056. With a coloured anodized aluminium chronograph pusher and matching detail on the crown the strong circular lines of the case are complemented with appropriate yet finessed detailing that is striking to behold. Measuring 45mm in diameter the case fits snug thanks to the carefully articulated polished lugs, which hugs the case to the wrist. Inside the case lies the precision Japanese made chronograph retrograde movement that reads off day, date, seconds , minute and 30m readout via a perfectly balanced series of hands, circular discs and registers all precisely weighted to offer clear cut information at an instant while never compromising on the time reading functionality of the watch. The hour and minute hands are sword shaped in a classic aviation style proportion built in to keep in sync with the rest of the watches generally modern feel. Crowning this symphony of lines underneath the lens, the chronograph seconds hand is arrow shaped in a harmonious bi-colour execution again hinting at the watches aeronautical DNA. Generous application of super luminova delivers high range visibility of the critical features of the 4056 in low light conditions and completes the watch as wrist instrument in as much being a timepiece for every day wear. Each detail on the dial has been carefully articulated drawing upon both the external lines of the Harrier or internal features and readouts of the cockpit. The strap attaches wearer to watch with a combination leather and canvas strap with stitching designed to echo the harnesses and belts holding the pilot to the sheer potential power of the Harrier.
