Camouflage Watches from AVI-8

I recently came across some really cool looking camouflage watches on Amazon.  The same folks who brought me my favorite aviation-themed watch:  AVI-8.  They've been applying camouflage to some of their best designs and they've been getting great results.

The AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane in Camouflage

It's a camouflage Hawker Hurricane watch from AVI-8.  I already have a traditional AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane, but camouflage could take this model to a whole new level.   Here is my AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane watch:

Here is the new camouflage model of the Hawker Hurricane watch from AVI-8.  I've blown up the photo so that you can see more detail.  For better views, these are clickable:

You can see that the dial details have changed a bit.  This watch features two subdials and moves the aircraft silhouette to a more prominent position at 9 o'clock.

AVI-8 Lancaster Bomber in Camouflage

The Hawker Hurricane is not the only AVI-8 model receiving a camouflage treatment.  The AVI-8 Lancaster Bomber also gets the camouflage look.

The camouflage pattern is a nice touch and really adds character to this basic design.  Here's a photo of an actual Lancaster Bomber sporting some camouflage of its own.

With the Lancaster Bomber model, you can see a simple dial with a large magnifier over the date window.  The bubble at 6 o'clock on the dial is designed to evoke the bombardier's nose bubble on the famed British Lancaster bomber of World War II.

Of course, the Lancaster has functional bubbles for gunners throughout the airframe.
