The Big Crown Pro-Pilot Day Date, with its sunburst dial and nuanced case detail adds a touch of class and makes for a nice alternative to the typical macho aviator fare.
Avalon (part-way between Melbourne and Geelong) will become one of the busiest air spaces in the country in March. The normally sleepy airport will be transformed when state-of-the-art planes including the gigantic RAF Atlas airlifter and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (in its first Australian sighting), will thunder down from the skies. The reason, of course, is the bi-annual Avalon Airshow, the world’s third largest aviation trade show, and if you’re in the market for a private jet or just looking to stock up on heat-seeking missiles, no doubt it’s already in the diary. We’ll be there for a more down-to-earth purpose, spending time with event sponsors Oris, a brand with its eyes firmly on the skies.
