- P-38 LIGHTNING AUTOMATIC 9400 SERIES:
First conceived in 1937, the twin-boomed P-38 was the most innovative plane of its day and the ultimate weapon, combining speed with unheard-of advances: two supercharged engines and a potent mix of four 50-caliber machine guns and a 20mm cannon The P-38 Lightning had a unique and compelling design and the watches pay homage to this industrial pre-war design with their cushion shaped stainless steel case, and dial font pulled directly from the instruments in the plane cockpit. The P-38 is available in Day/Date or Chronograph movements. The Day/Date model has a secondary hour hand that can be set to a second time zone (or to GMT time).
- The P-38 Lightning - Fork-tailed Devil:
First conceived in 1937, the twin-boomed P-38 was the most innovative plane of its day and the ultimate weapon, combining speed with unheard-of advances: two supercharged engines and a potent mix of four 50-caliber machine guns and a 20mm cannon. Upon its official introduction in 1940, the P-38 was capable of climbing to 3,300 feet in a single minute and reaching 400 mph, 100 mph faster than any other fighter in the world. It also doubled as an intimidating long-range threat, capable of carrying a larger payload than early B-17s and boasting a range of 1,150 miles. With its distinctive design, the P-38 was sleek and its twin tails gave it a radical new look. Nicknamed the ʺfork-tailed devilʺ by the Luftwaffe and ʺtwo planes, one pilotʺ by the Japanese, its versatility and ruggedness during WWII were legendary. It could sink a ship, strafe enemies on the ground, cripple tanks, and shoot down fighters and bombers.
