Every three months a Special edition watch is offered by Eaglemoss as a supplement to the collection.
The first of these is a 1910 style Pocket Watch to mark the ‘birth’ of the RAF during the First World War. It's evolution from the airborne unit of the Royal engineers, into the Royal Flying Corps, then encouraged by Winston Churchill, the then First Lord of the Admiralty, the separate Royal Naval Air Service. And finally the merging of the RFC and RNAS into the RAF on 1st April 1918.
