Why AVI-8?

At AVI-8 we pride ourselves in shedding light on important events and people throughout aviation history. Through a collection of exclusive collaborations, we've been fortunate enough to bring attention to the remarkable feats of aviators whilst giving back to communities whose stories we draw inspiration from.

AVI-8 x RBL

AVI-8 was incredibly proud to announce the partnership with the Royal British Legion for their centenary year in May 2021. Each timepiece sold helped raise funds for this extraordinary charity and support the crucial work they do for those who serve and have served in the British Armed Forces and their families.

AVI-8 x Jet Art Aviation

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Daily Mail Transatlantic Air Race in 1969 won by Tom Lecky-Thompson in Harrier XV741, AVI-8 worked closely with renowned aviation restoration company Jet Art Aviation to produce a series of limited edition timepieces.

AVI-8 x Help for Heroes

AVI-8 was honoured to announce the release of a line of limited edition timepieces in partnership with British charity Help for Heroes. Funds raised were used to provide lifetime support to those wounded in the service of their country. Every course and activity offered from them aims to empower veterans to look beyond illness and injury, regain their purpose, reach their potential and have a positive impact on society.

After the amazing success of the Royal British Legion release in May 2021, AVI-8 is honoured to announce the launch of the Flyboy Royal British Legion Chairman's Meca-Quartz Limited Edition, produced to support and commemorate this amazing charity in their centennial year.


Instruction Manual

Inspired By And In Aid Of The RBL

We're honoured to present the next limited editions in our partnership in support of the Royal British Legion, in their centennial year.

The two new timepieces have been inspired by the RBL's first Chairman, Sir Thomas Frederick Lister, and the first President, Field Marshal Earl Haig. The Royal British Legion was formed in 1921 by Lister and Haig in the aftermath of the First World War to fight for the rights of those who had given so much and come back to so little.

With an outstanding 1,000 units produced for each of the new models, every timepiece sold will contribute to this amazing charity and support those who serve and have served in the British Armed Forces and their families.

Timepieces That Tell A Story

Blending modern and classical details, the vintage aviation inspired dial features syringe-style hands and bold applied Arabic hour indexes with Swiss lume on a textured matte canvas. The Royal British Legion's iconic two petal poppy is stamped at the 6 o'clock position as a mark of Remembrance.

Comfortably sized at 40mm, the brushed and polished case features a unidirectional bezel and an elegant double domed hardened mineral glass with anti-reflective coating. An "onion" style crown drawn from trench watches in the early 20th century is expertly completed by a red poppy encased in epoxy.

Powering the Chairman's edition is a reliable Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring a charming, smooth, sweeping seconds hand typically found in premium modern mechanical movements.

Each of the 1000 limited edition timepieces is individually numbered and comes packaged in a striking blue and red gift box, resembling the Royal British Legion's branding. Each watch comes complete with a complimentary RBL poppy pin, to wear in support of the fallen.

£10 from the sale of this product will be paid to Royal British Legion Trading Limited (Company no. 4783730 registered in England and Wales) which gives its taxable profits to The Royal British Legion (Charity no. 219279).
