Hawker Harrier II Turbine Edition
The cutting edge power, technology and force of the iconic Hawker Harrier are echoed via the AV 4051 split timing chronograph. Forged out of solid stainless steel and strapped to the wearers wrist with a supple yet robustly durable genuine leather strap, this is a watch built to endure.
With a multi-layered dial, reflecting a design that highlights the avionic cues that inspired the watch, read out of time is still clear and straight-forward even while the design of the readout intrigues and delights with subtle and obvious aesthetic cues from the Harrier. The razor like finish of the index and hands creates a sharp defined look to the dial.
But it is the 1/10th split time register which gives the 4051 its true character. Multiple discs spin to indicate split fraction of a second timing with a visual reference to the massive engines and turbines of the Hawker Harrier.
As the chronograph runs off and measures elapsed time, the discs create a unique and compelling reflection of the Harriers own mechanics. Completing this tribute to the engine of the Harrier is the stamped and polished caseback carefully detailed in the design of the Harriers jets.
