RAF Flight Lieutenant Ray Holmes became a legend when he defended Buckingham Palace from an oncoming Luftwaffe bomber by ramming his P2725 Hawker Hurricane into it mid-air. The Christopher Ward C9 P2725 TM-B Watch celebrates Holmes as well as other, less celebrated RAF soldiers. Inspired by the Hurricane's dashboard, the matte black dial has highly legible numerals and indexes that alternate between white and tan SuperLuminova. The 43mm DLC stainless steel case holds a Swiss-made Valgranges A07.161 movement chosen for its power reserve function that here recalls the aircraft's altimeter, and has a piece of aluminum salvaged from the P2725's engine on the rear. Limited to just 100 examples, it arrives with a canvas strap reminiscent of the plane's fabric fuselage, as well as a vintage oak leather strap.
