SPA 3 «CIGOGNES»

«FAIRE FACE» 

 

 Georges Guynemer (December 24th 1894 - September 11th 1917) was a French Ace with 53 victories.

 

As homage to this French National Hero, we are proud to introduce the SPA 3 «CIGOGNES», a 50 pieces Limited Edition timepiece.

 

Featuring a highly polished case, a blue hand for seconds, an enamel white dial, with luminous hands and numbers from 1 to 11 using the particular "Vieux Charles" ("Old Charles") yellow color, from the name given to the plane of the Great War Ace.

 

The most distinctive feature of the SPA 3 "CIGOGNES" (from Guynemer's squadron) is the offset dial. This feature was often seen on early XXth century watches, as it made readability more instinctive.

BRAVERY

 

Quite often nicknamed the "Seventy-Five", the 75mm Model 1897 field gun was second to none at the time of its issuing and and even during World War I.

 

As a tribute to the bravery of the Great War soldiers, the back of the SPA 3 «CIGOGNES» has its centre engraved with the effigy of the shell of this truly revolutionnary piece of engineering. 

 

Each watch is individually serial numbered from 01 to 50.
