Inspiration
The F4U Corsair has been the inspiration for our Corsair Collection

Vought F4U Corsair

 

For our Corsair collection, we were inspired by the the Vought F4U Corsair, which is still considered as one of the most impressive American fighters of all times, and by pilots who were flying it. Their need was to have a comfortable, yet precise watch: they could wear both in their missions and in normal life.

 

Corsair PilotWe have aspired to design our Corsair collection so that our watches have that “vintage” look which could remind those pilots’ needs and at the same time to become modern and efficient timepieces which we can wear in modern everyday life. We wanted to have a clear sign of that flying machine incorporated into our watches by having a special customized “Corsair” rotor for the mechanical automatic Eterna 3901A movement which is clearly visible from the see-through glass at the backside of our entire collection. Also lugs of the watches remains legendary design of the Corsair’s wings.

 

From Wikipedia: “The Vought F4U Corsair, also nicknamed “the hog”, was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured, in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–53).

 

The F4U incorporated the largest engine available at the time: the 2,000 hp (1,500 kW) 18-cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial. To extract as much power as possible, a relatively large Hamilton Standard Hydromatic three-blade propeller of 13 feet 4 inches (4.06 m) was used.

 

As well as the U.S. and British use the Corsair was also used by the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the French Navy Aéronavale and other, smaller, air forces until the 1960s. The Corsair served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria.”
