TOCKR D-Day C-47 "Alfred Pepper" Bronze watch

Introducing the D-Day C-47 "Alfred Pepper" Bronze 75 Piece Limited Edition watch.

Since late 2018, Tockr has released two 100 piece editions of the D-Day C-47 watch in stainless steel, and the 75 piece bronze limited D-Day C-47 “Alfred Pepper” series is the latest extension of the collection, designed and produced by Tockr in partnership with CAF to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. No more than 500 D-Day C-47 watches will ever be made by Tockr, and no more than 75 bronze watches of that series will be made.

The dials of this 75 piece bronze edition are also cut from authentic salvaged aircraft material from the “That’s All, Brother” aircraft, which led the D-Day invasion into Normandy, 75 years ago. Tockr has taken the utmost care to faithfully preserve and protect the original, genuine markings and unique character of the airplane material through each dial. Consequently, no two watches are alike. The D-Day C-47’s distinct dial types each featured dark to light hues of brown and green and varying degrees of painting, stamping, or weathering. “Clean Cut” dials feature light to medium weathering and exhibit some light, original distressing; “Stamped” dials feature medium weathering and select “Stamped” models also display original typography in yellow, brown or blue hues. “Hard Worn” models feature heavily weathered, crackled, and chipped dial material with large areas of exposed aluminum.

Through an anti-glare sapphire crystal, the wearer can admire each precious piece of history, preserved beneath a special anti-corrosion sealant. An airplane shaped second hand, coated in vivid orange SuperLuminova, ticks along over the dial, visually linking the watch to the storied “That’s All, Brother” aircraft. The Austin, Texas based brand commissioned legendary watch designer Emmanuel Gueit to design a 42mm cushion shaped case for the watch series, and the case also houses a Swiss automatic ETA 2834 A6 movement that is assembled in Switzerland. Each Tockr D-Day C-47 “Alfred Pepper” model comes presented in a military inspired, keepsake wooden box with two straps: a drab green strap made from canvas webbing and a brown leather band.
