“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a weekly roundup of some of our favorite watch content, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on. This week’s installment is brought to you by AVI-8 watches and their Hawker Harrier II Matador Edition.
Named for the Hawker Harrier “Jump Jet” which served across several air and naval air forces, the Matador Edition takes design cues from planes that flew for the Armada Espana (Spanish Navy). The 44-millimeter case features a carved caseback that shows the turbine blades of the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine that powered the Harrier. You’ll also find knurling on the crown and piston-style pushers.
