“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a roundup of some of our favorite watch content on Worn & Wound, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on.
Built by North American Aviation (NAA), The P-51 Mustang was one of WWII’s greatest fighters. With its new aerodynamic design and super-powered Rolls Royce Merlin engine, the P-51 Mustang was a powerhouse that saw action in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific, and it remained in service with various air forces around the world well into the ‘90s. The AVI-8 P-51 Mustang Bottisham watch honors that legendary plane.
Measuring 43mm across, the largely brushed case features a curved crown guard, swooping lugs, and a domed sapphire crystal. Powering the watch is a Seiko NH35 movement, a solid caliber from a trusted movement maker.
