AVI-8 creates aviation-inspired watches with homages to planes of the past. This one is dedicated to the Hawker Hurricane, a British single-seater fighter aircraft from the 1930s. The first thing that sticks out about the watch is its chronograph, operated by way of the pushers at 2 and 4. As accuracy was—and still is—paramount in the line of duty, the chronograph tracks time all the way to a tenth of a second. Running seconds can be found on the subdial at 9 o’clock, which is styled like the target-style mark on the fuselage of the Hurricane. The outer chapter ring has a tachymeter scale. This is helpful in measuring fuel and oil consumption, converting units of measurement, calculating distance, and measuring speed. Materials wise, the Hurricane is strong and backed by a stainless steel case and mineral crystal.
