For an automatic watch in this price point, the Kent is decently finished. The brushing is uniform. The dial is slick and well laid out. But the lume shoots for the moon. On wrist, just passing through a dim room, the watch will light up. There are also a lot of Easter eggs in the design which will delight military buffs.
On Spec: The Spitfire Type 300 Royal British Legion by Avi-8
AVI-8 just announced the launch of a very special timepiece: The Spitfire Type 300 Automatic Royal British Legion. The watch, limited to only 500 pieces, is the brand’s way of commemorating the Legion’s Centenary this year. A portion of the proceeds (£25) from the sale of each watch will be used to help the charitable organization, who offer support to veterans and current members of the British Armed Forces.
