The Avro Pilot Watch celebrates the ingenuity of the Avro CF-105 Arrow jet plane built in Canada during the 50ties and abruptly discontinued 60 years ago. Each Watch features the Royal Canadian Airforce Roundel and is Numbered and Limited to 105 pieces!
On its first flight, 25 March 1958, the Arrow broke four different speed records. Over the next year, the five “Mark 1” Arrows would fly a total of 66 times. The more powerful “Mark 2” Arrows that were in development never flew. Despite the plane’s enthusiastic reception, both the Arrow and Avro would soon meet their end in complicated political battles and backroom deals..
