Military Watch Collection Special Edition Royal Flying Corps Airman’s Pocket Watch.

A stunning pocket watch, inspired by the timepiece used by British Naval Pilots in the 1910s. At the birth of the RAF, cockpit instrumentation was minimal, so pilots needed a portable timepiece they could rely on. With this special issue about the dawn of British military aviation you receive a pocket watch inspired by the timepiece used by naval pilots towards the end of World War 1.

Your early British pilot’s watch was designed for durability and ease of use. With pilots starting to fl y the first ever wartime missions in 1914, easy legibility was essential so that they could check the time easily and thus calculate distance flown. 16 page magazine reveals details of your airman’s pocket watch, and the way in which it was used by early pilots and looks  at the debates surrounding the development of an air force separate from the Army or Navy.
