MATWATCHES, the leading French company in the manufacture of military & aviator watches, in partnership with IRON MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson, presents the limited edition, official Bruce Aeris quartz chronograph pilot’s watch. Produced to commemorate Bruce piloting the band’s customized Boeing 747 jumbo jet Ed Force One, around the world on The Book Of Souls 2016 World Tour which carried Iron Maiden, their crew and over 20 tons of stage equipment across six continents.
The bespoke professional pilot’s watch will be strictly limited to 666 individually numbered pieces packaged in a Collectors’ Box accompanied by a certificate of authenticity personally signed by Bruce Dickinson & a photo of the plane that completed some 61,518 miles (99,003 km) and 48 sectors of service on The Book of Souls 2016 World Tour. The watches are available on a first come, first served basis from www.bruceaeris.com retailing at £666 (£799.20 including VAT).
The official Bruce Aeris chronograph quartz is a technical and operational product which is identified by its black steel, interchangeable straps and with its high resistance to shocks, traction, bad weather and extreme conditions. The luminous index of its dial is manufactured in Super Luminova BGW9 and its reinforced sapphire glass provides legibility under numerous circumstances. This model was tested to be waterproof at 200 meters thanks to its screw-in crown and pushers.
