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.

Great watch at a value price

This was my first 'meca-quartz' watch, and so far I really enjoy watching the mechanical-like tick of the second hand, but knowing I have quartz accuracy and reliability. Purchasing and delivery was easy and no-fuss. If I was to make a suggestion it would be to provide the watch on a NATO strap - something about the design of the leather strap didn't quite work for me and mine is on a NATO now, which feels right for the style of watch. Overall very happy.

Great watch for a great cause

An excellent watch for a worthwhile cause. I bought last year's RBL offering of the Founders Chairman watch, so buying this was a no brainer, it helps as it's such a nice-looking watch, the best of the colourways in my humble opinion. The addition of the poppy on the second hand end and on the crown was a nice touch. It wears nicely, very comfortable on the wrist and it keep very accurate time being meca-quartz. The lume is also great, lasting for hours if left in direct sunlight or charged with a torch. This watch is excellent value for money, it supports a great charity and can be found on promotion prices too.
