TRIBUS is a Swiss watch brand launched in 2020 with a focus on Swiss engineering, collaboration and storytelling. Founded by three brothers from Liverpool who inherited a love of watchmaking through their father, they chose Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy as one of their first partnerships after discovering the story of Piotr Laguna, ‘the Few’ and the exclusion of the Polish from the British Victory March of 1946. They wanted to help raise awareness of this injustice through the TRI-05 303 Squadron P8331 Limited Edition, with proceeds from the watch helping Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy achieve their strategic aims.

A 303-piece limited edition featuring a century’s worth of Polish aeronautical cues incorporated into its design, the TRI-05 also contains a piece of metal recovered from 303 Squadron’s Spitfire P8331 RF-M ‘Sumatra’ embedded into its backplate. After being shot down over Coquelles, France on 27 June 1941, P8331 would be excavated in June 1986. Its arming panel was sourced by TRIBUS and cut into 303 discs, each 16.5mm wide. Surrounding this precious metal, the Polish motto “Za naszą i waszą wolność – for our freedom and yours” has been engraved into glass, allowing a view of the Sellita SW200 self-winding movement inside. This watch doesn’t just carry over a century’s worth of Polish aeronautical cues within its design; it remembers the sacrifice of all those whom Churchill would call ‘the Few’ during those darkest of days.
