Our love for rare and beautiful objects isn't limited to those of the horological variety! In addition to our perpetual treasure hunt for great watches, we cast a wider net into the world of vintage objects, a practice that, since our founding, has yielded a trove of finds we happily share during the holiday season each year.
From vintage clocks to pocket knives, lighters to diving instrumentation, old-world ashtrays to desk sculptures — these are the types of mementos that heavily tug on our nostalgic heart strings and further sate our impulse for preservation and storytelling.
Unfortunately we can't keep them all...
This particular desk sculpture is modeled after the iconic Boeing-52 Stratofortress, an American long-range, subsonic, strategic bomber developed by Boeing that has been operated by the United States Air Force since 1955. An iconic aircraft in the US military arsenal since the early days of the Cold War, the pressurized Stratofortress has a cruising range exceeding 8000 miles and is able to carry up to 70,000 lbs. of ordnance, giving its menacing silhouette the ability to strike fear at a glance. Known to aircrews and enthusiasts as the BUFF (look it up!), it has undergone numerous avionics and powerplant upgrades in its service life, and the latest iterations are still flying today.
This awesome vintage desk model is chrome plated and displays the Boeing-52G’s swept expansive wings with USAF emblems. The model is supported by a chrome plated base with a swivel mount. Produced by Allyn Sales Company for Boeing, this rare piece is a faithful interpretation of the Stratofortress, and is sure to be a cherished centerpiece for any fan of military aviation!
