The T16 was made in commemoration of R.J. Mitchell. Mitchell was the designer of the famous Supermarine Spitfire Fighter aircraft. The Spitfire was made during a time of much advancement to different parts of the aircraft, but Mitchell had the vision of combining them in order to create one super successful fighter aircraft. The T16 is made with a Swiss made ETA chronograph quartz movement. It has a clean look with an extremely legible dial and useful functionality. The T16 is one of our longest running and most popular lines which comes in vintage colors, carbon fiber, phantom, or plain color dials. The leather is Italian, like all Torgoen leather, and all steal is high grade stainless steel. This timepiece is timeless. Like R.J. Mitchell, we at Torgoen believe you need to tell it straight and simple. In his words: "If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can´t understand it, take it from me: it´s all balls." –R.J. Mitchell
