1980’s INSPIRED PANDA

Inspired by the best of the 1980’s graphic colour ways, the Fairford dial is a classic take on a Panda sports dial. Defined as a chronograph dial with a white background and black sub-dials (and named after the animal with that same recognisable face), the Fairford Panda dial has a base of pure arctic white to keep it as fresh looking today as it was when Panda dials first appeared in the mid 20th Century. The vintage curved dial is framed by raised Grade A ice blue Super-LumiNova English numerals, outlined in jet black. Punched through the main dial design are the recessed triple sub dials in a micro jet black turned texture, showing 1/10 second counter, 30-minute counter and small seconds all with aqua hands for quick clarity.The main 60 second chronograph hand sits on top in a fluorescent red while the hand below contrasts in astronaut silver against the bold white dial. The Lume detail continues with curved split line design hour/minute syringe-style hands in astronaut silver, set to afterglow at night with Super-LumiNova ice blue infill to complete the retro inspiration.

SPECIAL DLC CASE

DLC finished classic Farer 39.5mm, marine-grade 316L steel case, just 11mm in depth and with a 20mm lug. Manufactured using a hardened ‘Diamond-Like Carbon’ coating finish to deliver optimal wear resistance and stealth-like slickness - an all black case in both polished and brushed finishes. Three chronograph button pushers set at positions 2, 4 and 10 for split-second timing with a tapered crown coated in matching black DLC.

PowerDrive Technology

PowerDrive controls the running of the chronograph motors, and can increase the hand movement speed to more than 200 Hz (i.e. 200 hand jumps per second in either direction of rotation). This technology improves the hand movement control, making for a highly dynamic display. The movement is quick to use and highly reactive - vital for split-second timing.

Split-Second Timing

The split-second complication records and displays an intermediate time, allowing two time intervals to be compared. The main chronograph second hand hides another hand revealed on split-timing. When the chronograph is started, the two hands start moving together one above the other, until a press of the split-second pusher separates them. The first hand stops while the other carries on turning. It is then possible to read the intermediate time while the other chronograph hand continues its progress.

Flyback Chronograph

The flyback complication allows you to use the reset function without the need to first stop the chronograph. When the flyback button is pressed, the second hand flies back to zero and instantly starts counting again. In regular chronographs you need to stop, reset, and restart the chronograph if you want to quickly time an event after you have started the chronograph. Associated with pilots and motor racing where speed and response is of the essence.

STORY
Named after RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England. Originally built as an airfield for D-Day, its single runaway is 3,046m long - making it an ideal base for British land speed records. From Robert Horne's flying mile in 1977, driving in the ex-Scuderia Montjuich Ferrari 512M at a speed of 191.64 mph to Colin Fallows in 2006, driving the Vampire jet car at a speed of 301.67 mph.
