Why AVI-8?
Close popup

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.

Named after the Rolls Royce powered Avon turbojet engine that powered it, the Avon chronograph is replete with design cues and inspiration taken directly from the Hawker Hunter aircraft.

To pronounce the engine's influence, the watch features a slanted serrated bezel across the 45mm case. The case is crafted out of solid stainless steel and features a hardened mineral lens. The crown itself is like an engine of its own, echoing the aesthetic cues seen on the bezel and is paired with matching piston like chronograph pushers.

Bold skeletonized “fleiger” hands are modern in concept yet familiar in function and rotate across the cockpit inspired multi-layered dial with clear luminous baton markings and tachymeter read out on the inside tension ring.

Strapped to the wrist with a vintage inspired hand-stitched leather strap, this is a wearable, functional and remarkably detailed piece of watchmaking.
