Limited Edition - JUNKERS W33 Bremen
As a further development of the successful passenger aircraft F 13, the single-engine cargo transport low-wing W 33 took off in June 1926 for its maiden flight as a seaplane version on the Elbe near Dessau. Since the aircraft was designed for air freight transport, the windows familiar from the F 13 and the typical elevation above the passenger cabin were omitted. Other special features were the float frame and the cockpit with dual controls. The W 33 proved to be robust and reliable in service. As a result, impressive pioneering flights and numerous world aviation records were achieved. On 12 April 1928, a specially converted and equipped W 33 took off from the Baldonell airfield in Western Ireland and landed on Greenly Island between Labrador and Newfoundland after about 36 hours. This was the first non-stop east-west Atlantic crossing in aviation history. On 19 October 1928, a W 33 took off from Berlin-Tempelhof and flew in several stages and the pure flight time of 90 hours over some 14,250 km to the Japanese capital Tokyo.
As a tribute to this amazing aircraft, the Junkers W 33 watch model is now available in a limited special edition.
