Exclusive Key Ring

The limited-edition key ring incorporates a piece cut from the Caribou (DHC-4) aircraft A4-208, the rugged and dependable transport airplane used for many decades by RAAF.

Made to last

The unisex designed watch case is made of surgical grade 316L stainless steel.

The Sapphire crystal face can't be scratched or broken.

It has been 70 years since the last RAAF watch collaboration with watch brands IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre and we have built this watch using the same manufacturing techniques as those historical watches.

The original watches are now collector’s items worth many times their value.

Clear dial design

The clean look of the dial with "syringe" hands makes it easy to quickly read the time. The hands have super-luminova to glow when its dark.

The Centenary logo makes it exclusive and unique.

The second-hand reflects shape of the Caribou as a counter-weight.

Historic Case Back

The watch back has been embossed with the outline of the Caribou Aircraft.

Features the Broad Arrow next to the limited-edition number.

Each watch is individually numbered.

Australian Air Force Crown

The Australian Air Force Roundel is inserted in the crown at 4H under a crystal.

We have strategically designed the crown at 4H position to make it easy and versatile for active men and women. This way we avoid any restriction of movement on the wrist when a crown is placed at traditionally at 3H.

Innovative Strap

The waterproof strap is made of high-performance recycled PET plastic which has been reinforced for longevity.

Additional straps can be easily interchanged to create a versatile look and function for every occasion.
