Made to last
This watch design was first launched by Bausele in 2011 and has been perfected and tested to the highest standard over almost a decade.
Constructed from surgical grade 316L stainless steel with gun metal IP. Features a Sapphire crystal face that cannot be scratched or broken.
It has been over 70 years since the RAAF commissioned a watch. We have built this watch using the same Swiss manufacturing techniques as the original watches, now worth many times their original value as collector's items and designed by IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre.
Clear dial design
The clean look of the dial with large hands makes it very easy to read. The RAAF Centenary logo creates a unique collector's edition keepsake. The second hand has been designed in the shape of a F/A-18 Hornet. The Dial features a count up function actioned by the crown at 2 o'clock which turns the multi-directional inner ring. The purpose of the count up is to track elapsed time.
The uniquely designed crown, located at 4 o'clock for comfort, contains actual soil from Point Cook base, the first Royal Australian Air Force base, set under unbreakable glass.
Air Force Roundel Crown
The crown at 2 o'clock is emblazoned with the Air Force Roundel under a crystal.
Historic Case Back
The watch back has been embossed with the outline of the F/A-18A "Classic" Hornet.
Features the Broad Arrow and is marked with "Limited Edition" "One of 1,000".
A special piece
The first 40 Aviator Mk. II watches ordered will come with a specially designed key ring inset with a piece of metal from F/A-18A Hornet A21-001.
Carry a piece of history with you wherever you go.
The waterproof strap is made of high- performance recycled PET plastic which has been reinforced and designed to last. Additional straps are easily self-changeable, making it a superbly versatile watch.
The watch is secured by the most efficient deployed buckle, used by luxury brands.
The stylish black dial features white hands and numerals that glow in the dark for night- time visibility, and it is matched with a black band.
The blue dial comes with a matching blue band and is inspired by the colour Air Force colour blue. The 0-21 section of the count-up ring has been highlighted in red signifying the Air Force's establishment and centenary years: 1921-2021
