Our friends at AVI-8 watches are offering Flypast readers the chance to win a Hawker Hurricane Clowes automatic watch worth £295
Inspired by the RAF’s No.1 Squadron and the courageous Arthur “Tay” Clowes, the Hawker Hurricane Clowes Automatic has been designed as a commanding, pronounced pilot’s watch to honour their incredible accomplishments during WWII.
As a tribute to Clowes and the No.1 Squadron he flew for, his aircraft code is stamped at the 6H position along with a custom seconds hand counter-balance created in the form of his Hawker Hurricane. The squadron motto In omnibus princeps (“First in all things”) is written at the bottom of the dial to reflect the squadron’s exclusive status as the RAF’s first unit.
