The FV432 that we created our dial from rubbed fenders with the best of the best in the 1st Royal Tank Regiment of the British Army 😳. In the 80’s it began its service with the RTR and was built to protect and save the lives of men and women as it travelled the globe in its endeavours. Eventually old age forced the FV to retire finally laying rest in Ralson, Alberta, Canada as part of a live-firing training exercise conducted by the British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS).
We were lucky enough to acquire the lid of the Fighting Vehicle and what was once a Fighting Vehicle top hatch has been repurposed as the live edge dial of this timepiece. The beautiful colour of the dial was a colour uncovered after removing the layers of paint applied over the years and features a subtle sparkle from the hand shaving process crossing into our sealing process. Even if we tried it would be close to impossible to replicate the look of this dial OR keep your friends from ogling it.
Strap on this beautiful piece to continue its heroic endeavours alongside you.

Note: Every dial will have different characteristics and colouring. Although each will be unique and different, they’ll all be beautiful.
