The Supermarine Spitfire is arguably the most iconic and beautiful fighter plane of World War II. An aircraft that will be forever associated with the epic Battle of Britain which raged in the skies over England in 1940. This classic aviator design uses a precision Swiss made chronograph with a Super Luminova dial protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This design is limited to 1940 units in honor of the Battle of Britain, with the case back displaying original airframe material from Spitfire R6753. Pilot JC Pinckney shot down an ME-109 on Aug 29, 1940 while at the controls of R6753.
