Introducing the GAVOX Curtiss P-40

It's always fun to have new things to talk about - and they don't always have to be high-end/mega expensive.
This is a new collection from GAVOX -

This is the Curtiss P-40 Collection from GAVOX.  These watches were inspired by the original Flying Tigers and the founder, being the grandson of one of these great pilots wanted to create something worthy of their legend, while built to stand-up to the rigors of moden use.  The GAVOX Curtiss P-40 was named in honor of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) who joined the Flying Tigers in China in 1939 to prepare the local defense against attacks from the Axis alliance.
