303 Squadron’s Spitfire P8331 RF-M ‘Sumatra’ was being flown by Piotr Laguna when it was shot down over Coquelles in 1941. A piece of its arming panel sits within this 303-piece limited edition. Not only a piece of history on your wrist, each TRI-05 is a reminder of the part 303 Squadron played in winning the Battle of Britain.
Churchill once said, "history is written by the victors”. Yet even those on the winning side can be denied recognition. Renowned for their fearlessness and skill, 303 Kościuszko Polish Fighter Squadron helped turn the tide of the Battle of Britain. Yet its legacy would be wiped, their place on the British Victory March of 1946 refused.Discover More
Working with Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy, we want to help raise awareness of this injustice. Proceeds from each TRI-05 sold are being used to help restore the excavated remains of P8331 to airworthy condition, allowing future generations to learn about the vital part 18,000 Polish men and women had in changing the outcome of the Second World War.View the Watch
Over a century’s worth of Polish aeronautical history feature in the TRI-05’s design: the Kosciuszko badge of 303 Squadron; the Polish Air Force’s red and white chequerboard; and Poland’s motto, ‘Za naszą i waszą wolność’, engraved on glass. Its fitting meaning: 'for our freedom and yours’.Explore the Details
P8331 and Laguna’s final flight together took place on 27th June 1941, when P8331 was struck by a German anti-aircraft shell. Piotr was killed whilst attempting to bail, before P8331 crash-landed in boggy French farmland. It remained there until its excavation 45 years later. A disc of its recovered arming panel features inside the TRI-05 – every rust mark tells a story of bravery, every bullet hole a tale of resilience and every inch echoes the sound of 18,000 unheard voices.Learn More
