Lot Essay

The present watch was especially made for Number 32 (The Royal) Squadron which is active in the VIP and general air transport roles from RAF Northolt in Greater London.

Known for their participation in the First and Second World Wars, the Metropolitan Communications Squadron was renamed No. 32 Squadron at that time. In 1995, the squadron was merged with the Queen's Flight and incorporated 'The Royal' title into its name.

The merger ended the RAF's provision of dedicated VIP transport aircraft; the squadron's aircraft are available to VIP passengers only if not needed for military operations.
