Special Edition hand-wound A.R.P (Air Raid Precaution) blackout watch cases have been vapour-coated with a hard matt black surface. During World War II, British towns and cities were subject to a ‘dim-out’, where no light brighter than moonlight was permitted, or full black-outs, during air raids, where no light at all was allowed, and windows were fully shuttered. Military equipment was blackened to prevent reflections being spotted by enemy aircraft. The Sector dial is inspired by 1930s wristwatch dials, divided into distinct areas, radiating from the centre. The egg yolk painted hour hashes are pointed to resemble torpedoes closing on a target, and the GS/TP handwinder icon, indicating that this watch houses a Japanese-made Miyota 17 jewel manual movement, appears across the inner sector. All black-out watches are fitted on a black nylon NATO strap, with vapour coated steel hardware, and presented in a special edition dark map box.
