Night Fright C-47 RSC watch with an ORIGINAL PART
of the C-47 integrated in the watch back

Swiss movement – Sapphire crystal

The restoration of C-47 Skytrain 42-100521 formerly of the 79th Troop Carrier Squadron, 436th Troop Carrier Group that flew with the USAAF from Membury airfield (Station 466) during WW2. The aircraft christened “Night Fright” took part in all the Airborne missions in Europe during the war, dropping paratroopers, towing gliders, evacuating wounded and flying tons of much needed supplies to the front line.
Once completed, the aircraft will be a flying memorial to those men and women who served as part of Troop Carrier Command.
Only 436 of these unique timepieces will ever be built, and most proceeds from the sales will go directly to the Night Fright C-47 restoration group in order to facilitate the rebuild of this aircraft. By purchasing this watch, you will be directly contributing to the rebuild effort, and can wear your watch with pride for many years to come.
