Beautiful presentation and history. A talk piece for sure. Thanks again.
I've had this watch for over a year now and I couldn't be happier with it. The styling, build quality, materials, and movement compare favorably with my quartz Tag Heuer F1, but at less than half the price. I like all of the Bristol watches, but this one is my favorite, partly because of the plane to which it pays tribute, and partly because the watch itself is a work of art. The company is great to work with--they care as much about their products and their customers as they do about aviation. I love that they have found a way to salvage bits of these historical planes, either as leftovers from restorations, or from planes too far gone to restore, and have found a way to give them a little more life. I'm especially glad that one bit of a Spitfire has been given a home in a beautiful watch that, more days than not, can be found on my wrist. For a aviation and/or history fan, these watches are outstanding.
Great looking watch. Received (Australia) within a week and in time for it as a gift for wedding anniversary for husband, who loves the watch. Thank you.
This is my second Spitfire “Battle of Britain” watch, one all black and one light faced with a tan strap. I have researched Pilot JC Pinckney’s short career as a fighter pilot and feel humbled by what all Spitfire pilots gave during that period.
The watch, itself is a classic, keeps very accurate time and just looks great.
Thank you for the idea for the watch and carrying out that idea in such a perfect way.
My husband absolutely LOVES this watch.
He is sooo proud of it and the history behind it!
Amazing experience! I saw the story about the company and watch and I called the 800 number as I had a few questions and Greg the owner of the company answered himself. When I hung up I ordered the watch and it arrived 4 days later. Beautiful watch and presentation! If you love aviation history and watches this is the most perfect combination! 5 stars all the way! Thanks again! Kevin
Being a student of WW2, I was especially drawn to this watch over two years ago. Never thought I could own one but here it is.
Not just for flying! High style watch that I recommend. When it arrived, the packaging was great. Created anticipation. Opened it and I was not disappointed. Very good quality and well designed.
I purchased the Spitfire watch for my boyfriend who is a history buff and Spitfire enthusiast. Researching the history of the plane and pilot was extremely insightful and made this the perfect gift. He is beyond thrilled with this absolutely beautiful watch.
Sincerest thanks to Mr Greg Youngs for exceptional customer service. Greg answered all of my questions and made sure this piece of history landed in my hands in time for a very special birthday.
If you're thinking of buying this watch, think no longer, it is even more spectacular in person!
Beautiful! Very impressive!
My second watch and not the last. Absolutely a beautify timepiece and a remarkable conversation item that will last generations.
The Spitfire watch was a no brainer for me, It being my favorite airplane and having spent 25 years in the Canadian Air Force. I have had the watch for about a month now and it is working very well, The build quality is excellent and is very easy to read. The main reason for the watch is the history and actual airframe material incorporated into the watch.
Beautiful watch! As a private pilot and admirer of Spitfire aircrafts I love the history that comes with it, and the fact that a small piece of a Spitfire is built into the watch. No issues with the free shipping to Norway.
The historical connection attracted me to the watch. I have been an active pilot for 50 years and having a bit of history on my wrist means alot.
My husband, an historian and aviation buff, loved it. It was made more special since it was my son's idea!
Beautifully designed and detailed watch. I love the history and the care that was taken to tell the story of this historic plane!
Bought this for my husband for Christmas, he's wanted one ever since he first saw them on the internet., It will make his Christmas. I unwrapped it once it was delivered., presentation was excellent and watch was good quality, everything one would expect from a watch of quality, better than some watches costing double and more., Would definitely recommend these watches if you want something well made, good quality and unique.
Great weight, look, reliability, and history. By far my favorite watch, and I have a few of them. Also great service and responsiveness from the BWC team. Thank you!
Great looking and comfortable weight
Brilliant concept. Congratulations for having the temerity to bring these wonderful creations to life. I am thoroughly enjoying my Spitfire Tribute watches. One has already brought a British friend to tears as he read the engraving on the back. I will forever cherish this artifact of history.
With Sincerest Thanks,
Gift for a friend who is a big fan of all things Spitfire. He loves it & wears it regularly.
The watch is beautiful, I love it !
Great website and great customer service. I really like the look of my beige dial Spitfire, but, I am a little disappointed that the numbers do not glow in the dark as do other Spitfire versions. However, this was a misunderstanding of my own making. If I would have looked more closely at the photos on the website I would have likely understood that only the hands glow in the dark. In any event, I like the beige dial enough that I would order the same if I ordering again.
Absolutely love it! Overall it is a very nice watch, so nice it feels like the history factor is an added bonus. Everything from the box, the documentation, the leather band, to the watch face is top notch. This is one of the few things in my life that I feel is a true deal and is under valued. If your on the fence just buy it and there will be zero regrets.
The watch is everything you hope and expect. The packaging is exceptional too. Far surpasses anything I've seen on watches costing far more money. If you want something as a presentation piece - this would ADMIRABLY fit the bill.
