If you are on the lookout for a dope new watch, then do proceed. The Camouflage editions of the AV 4041 “Spinning Roundel” Chronograph are beautifully detail homages to the strategically and utilitarian usage of various camouflage hues employed by different squadrons of Hawker Hurricanes during WW2. These watched pay a unique tribute that will reside close to those who appreciate the design of a fighter aircraft. Faced with varying theatres of combat, with varying topography and landscape it was natural to find the same aircraft painted and repainted to blend better within the terrain of its combat missions.
The AV 4041 exhibits a stunningly detailed multi-layered dial which is topped by a unique custom built printed roundel disc at the 12 o’clock position that reads off 1/5th of a second measurements when the split time chronograph function is employed. Utilizing both the historical iconography of a classic RAF roundel as part of the timing device in a manner that is appropriate yet unique and compelling has made this a truly standout piece in the AVI-8 range.
