In the spring of 1945, a Spitfire Mk.IX was brought down in combat, crashing on the Russian Tundra. Now, pieces of PT879’s original wings are able to fly again inside these limited-edition RJM Bluebird wristwatches, and FlyPast has one to give away. This is the fourth and final Spitfire watch in REC Watches’ RJM collection and with only 334 of these unique timepieces available, once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. So this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of ‘The Russian Spit.’ Features of the RJM Bluebird include a self-winding mechanical movement behind a blue sunburst dial and sapphire crystal, contained within an aluminium case, styled-on the classic military watches of World War Two. The blue woven strap is a tribute to the RAF uniform, and there is an elliptical wing shape and crown echoing the four-blade spinner of the Spitfire Mk.IX on the side. Obviously, the piéce de resistance is the date dial, which incorporates an untreated section of PT879’s aluminium wings. To buy one of these strictly limited timepieces would cost more than £900, but thanks to FlyPast and REC Watches, this is your chance to wear a piece of history, absolutely free.
