Lancaster W4783, nicknamed “G for George” holds the record of the most number of sorties without loss of life – 89 to be exact. What makes George’s story all the more heartening is that the bomber was crewed mainly by Australians. 75 years after G for George’s final, history-making mission, I invite you to pay tribute to the Australians of 460 Squadron with the “G for George 75th Anniversary Watch,” a magnificently realised timepiece capturing their daring, conviction and courage. It’s available in a limited release, only from The Bradford Exchange.

You’ll be impressed by the edition the moment you see the deluxe presentation case. It’s richly decorated with George tributes which elevate the edition to an heirloom value. Once you do open the box, you’ll be pleased to find a timepiece truly worthy of heirloom consideration.

The watch features a classic, tasteful design, complete with elegant gold-toned case. The watch face provides a scintillating canvas to display the art of world-acclaimed Welsh aviation artist Tim Jenkins. The multi-award winning painter lives and breathes aviation history and his depiction of George in the midst of enemy territory is as powerful and dramatic a scene as you will ever see in military art. Evading searchlights, ground artillery and airborne threat, 460 Squadron flies on to meet the enemy. In the foreground, G for George leads the way to victory and to 89 record-setting missions. The Anzac courage founded a generation earlier on the shores of Gallipoli reached new heights thanks to the men of 460 Squadron.

As well as a serving as a canvas for spectacular art, the “G for George 75th Anniversary Watch” is also a fully functional timepiece you can rely on. A precision quartz movement powers the discrete minute and hour hands and around the classic roman numerals is the motto of 460’s “Strike and Return” and the date of G for George’s final mission. The tribute continues on the case back. Finely etched is a schematic of Avro’s iconic Lancaster design anchored by the phrase “89 Not Out” and “G for George Lancaster Bomber.” On the reverse, you’ll also find the allimportant individual issue number of your watch.

This elegant edition is limited to just 2,999 editions and each is individually numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. High demand is expected so don’t delay, order yours now!
