A true tribute to the early days of the Airman.
The magnifying lens, the triangels at 24 and 12, the dots for the odd hour numbers, the name special, the Blue "dégradé" evidencing day and night (although not standard for an old Airman)...... need I go on.
A perfect watch and I'm sure that in upcomming years a new special will be produced with the same characteristics but with the Vintage V hands.
