The Twelve Labours of Hercules were impressive, sure, but not quite as impressive as the aircraft that provided inspiration for the new Bremont H-4 Hercules. Killing lions and hydras requires strength and focus, but building a plane in 1947 that makes a modern-day Airbus A380 look small, requires the unbridled ambition and enthusiasm of a Texan billionaire Howard Hughes.

Limited to 75 pieces in Rose gold, we were fortunate to take a closer look at this very special watch, which holds something very special within its case. Inlaid in the watch's automatic rotor are pieces of wood from the original H-4 Hercules, allowing rarefied owners to keep a piece of the historically important plane on their wrists.
