Today, we follow the story of Chris, a watch geek and Ford GT owner who surprised his dad with the watch of his dreams!

Chris has loved cars since he was young. His dad used to build them, and he always looked up to the man and his passion for cars. The 05-06 Ford GT is a tribute to the iconic fight between Ford and Ferrari (now represented in Ford vs. Ferrari) released for their 100th anniversary, and car fans went NUTS.

When Chris finally got the car, it was a momentous occasion, and he attributes so much of that to his dad and their shared passion. In celebration of this, Chris wanted to get his dad a watch that would be incredibly special, and he finally found the right one: the Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk. Based on a very famous fighting plane that was used during WWII to protect the Chinese from the Japanese (which taps into Chris’ Chinese heritage). And the look on his dad’s face when he realized what the watch was was absolutely priceless.
