FLYBOY ENGINEER AUTOMATIC
HELP FOR HEROES LIMITED EDITIONWATCHES
This timepiece showcases powerful yet subtle design cues to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed their lives for their nation over the years, and today.
With legibility our goal, the dial design, flieger hand shape and size deliver perfectly. A clear balance of each element on the dial has been complemented by pops of colour inspired by the Help for Heroes logo. The three colours (navy blue, red, light blue) represent the charity’s support for the British Armed Forces – the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.
At 42mm, this classic pilot’s watch is the ideal size. Forged out of solid stainless steel, the brushed case is topped with a domed sapphire lens for maximum durability. A moulded roundel inspired by the markings on British WW2 fighters sits on the edge of an ergonomically shaped conical crown.
From the charity’s tri-colour details applied at the 12 o’clock of the dial and stitched onto the extra leather strap, to the tip of the seconds hand with a custom carved roundel, details saluting the work of Help for Heroes have been subtly yet purposefully executed throughout the watch. To underline our collaboration, a textured fumé dial is framed by a raised chapter ring featuring the words “In Support Of Help For Heroes” at the 6 o’clock position.
Powering the Help for Heroes limited edition is an ever-dependable Japanese NH35 automatic movement. A carefully articulated solid steel 5-link engineer style bracelet attaches the watch to the wearer’s wrist. For added versatility, the timepiece also comes with an extra hand-stitched genuine leather strap. AVI-8’s timepiece produced in conjunction with Help for Heroes comes packed in a striking tri-colour canvas wrapped gift box.
Each watch is uniquely numbered as part of a limited edition of 300 pieces.
For each purchase of the Flyboy Engineer Automatic Help for Heroes Limited Edition, AVI-8 will donate a portion of sales to Help for Heroes.
