79 years ago the Spitfire that I’m creating “The Few” from was built. The Few is a series of exclusive handmade watches which, like the Spitfire, are completely made in Britain.
On 13th April 1944, production was completed on Spitfire ML295 at the Castle Bromwich Spitfire factory.
The aircraft was an LF Mark 9, which was a Spitfire variant designed for low altitude flight. At the time it was the cutting edge of Allied aircraft technology, powered by a 27 litre V12 Rolls Royce Merlin 66 engine, producing 1,705 horsepower and capable of reaching over 400mph. It was armed with 2 machine guns and 2 cannons in its wings and enough ammunition for 12 seconds of sustained fire.
To mark this momentous occasion, I’m thrilled to announce the release of my latest video on “The Few,” now available for viewing on YouTube.
It’s been a really enjoyable process creating the video, and we managed to get some fantastic shots of both the Spitfire and the watch. Just click on the video below, it’s just over two minutes long, and hopefully you will agree that we’ve managed to capture the spirit of the Spitfire and the pilots that flew in her.
Please feel free to share it far and wide.
