HURRICANE​
"THE NEW BENCHMARK IN AERONAUTICAL WATCHES"

BY CX SWISS MILITARY WATCH

In 2010 CX Swiss Military Watch released the 200 pc limited edition "HURRICANE", which was a big hit at the BASELWORLD show. It is now our pleasure to give it a proper introduction at this, the official CX SWISS MILITARY WATCH forum. We invite you to add your comments, pictures, feedback, and personal experience with the "HURRICANE".

At the affordable price point at Swiss Franc CHF 1995.00 (approx. USD 2250.00) it stands out among it's competitors as "the new benchmark in aeronautical watches". Some of it's distinguishing features include the incredibly scratch resistant DLC (diamond like coating) coating of case, crown, pushers, caseback, and strap buckle. Another unique feature is the nearly impermeable, exeptionally long lasting, genuine Swiss Made "nano-tech" black leather strap with bold, red stitching. My personal favorite is the Hurricane 2118 with the bold, RAF (Royal Air Force) red color dial.

GENERAL
The HURRICANE - RAF's forgotten fighter star of the Battle of Britain, the plane “never known to fail”. To commemorate the HURRICANE and the brave pilots who fought and fell with them we are proud to introduce our new pilot’s watch, the aptly named “HURRICANE” on this the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of Britain.

Based on our AIRFORCE I model the HURRICANE by CX Swiss Military Watch™ is equipped with the chronometer certified ETA cal. 7750 COSC and sets a new standard in its class: the stainless steel case, highly scratch resistant due to the DLC (diamond-like) black coating houses a bezel designed as a fully functional circular slide rule and is anti-magnetic as per ISO 764. The bezel allows for all relevant aeronautical calculations. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects a rugged dial evoking the artificial horizon in a cockpit. The small second hand is constructed in the shape of a propeller, relentlessly churning away against the tide of time.

The nanotech Swiss Made® leather strap is a new development, nearly impermeable and thus exceptionally long-lasting. The solid stainless steel buckle – also in DLC - bears the CX SWISS MILITARY WATCH logo and is as indestructible as the watch itself. The over sized pilot’s crown and the pushers are screw-down and the HURRICANE is water resistant to 200 meters. The red color of the pushers disappears once they are screwed-in and the watch thus fully water resistant. The HURRICANE is available in four dial colors - silver, black, RAF red and arctic blue – and is sold in a luxurious wooden gift box.

Rumours from the manufacturer??

When talking to the manufacturer about the red hands the other day they mentioned that the Hurricane was but the first watch in a whole series of higher end pilot's watches - seems someone really is trying to gate-crash on Breitling and Fortis :001_tongue:
