The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engined Second World War heavy bomber designed and built by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). The "Lanc", as it was affectionately known, became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers. The caseback of this watch pays another tribute to the Lancaster. During WW2, it was common for the crews of the Lancaster (and other planes) to decorate or illustrate the front end of their aircraft with pop culture reference of the day. Drawings of animals, cartoons of the day, pinups or graffiti like tagged sayings all gave each aircraft and their crew a sense of psychological defense or normalcy in what were the trying stressful conditions of combat. Given the connection between pilot and plane that these examples of art helped to connect man and machine is an illuminating look back at wartime history.
