Oris Flight Timer R4118 Limited Edition
Peter Vacher is a printer and publisher of academic journals with a passion for owning and restoring vintage Rolls-Royce cars. In 1982 when scouting around India for cars, he found the rusting remnants of an old British plane. This stayed at the back of his mind until 1996, when the wranglings to buy and remove the plane, which turned out to be a Mark 1 Hurricane R4118, began. In 2002 the plane was shipped back to England and carefully restored. It is now flying again, as it did in the Battle of Britain.
The Oris Flight Timer R4118 Limited Edition, with big vertical crown and second time zone function, is limited to 4118 units worldwide as a tribute to the legendary Hurricane R4118.
