An actual piece of Australian Air Force history on the case back
As well as having some soil from Australia’s first ever RAAF base in the hollow crown, each 100th Anniversary watch will be finished with an actual piece of an F18 or Caribou aircraft on the case back. The pieces from each decommissioned aircraft are authenticated and both have unique and amazing stories to tell of their time in service that can be tracked.
Amongst the collaborations we are the most proud of is the one with the Sydney Opera House
