@ChrisWardLondon C1000 Typhoon FGR4 Watch Review | @aBlogtoWatch
With the Christopher Ward C1000 Typhoon FGR4, it’s not just that this watch is called a pilot’s, or aviation, watch–it actually has some interesting ties to the Royal Air Force (RAF). First and foremost, of course, is the name, which derives from the RAF’s fighter, the FGR4 Typhoon. I’ll admit, if things stopped there (simply borrowing a name), it wouldn’t be much of a tie-in. Fortunately, for all you aviation buffs, that’s not where it stops. For the numerals used on the dial, they used the font of the Typhoon’s heads-up display. A closer look at the seconds hand will reveal the delta wings of the plane (on the counter balance) as well as it’s forward canards (on the tip).
