Built for the Royal Air Force, the Heritage Military recaptures the aesthetic of that original design with a design based on a watch owned by Stanley Turner, a former radiotelegraph operator in the RAF. The 38.5mm watch features a stainless steel case and a silver opaline dial that is misted with drops of black paint by hand to emulate the oxidation of the original watch. Movement is the Calibre L888.2 automatic with 64-hour power reserve and the watch will be available on either calf leather strap or a green Nato.
