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.

Looks great but poor manufacturing quality

This watch looks really great and the marketing team did a tremendous job connecting the watch to the great Chuck Yeager and the Bell X-1. As an aviation enthusiast, this is the kind of product I am looking for. However, for a price of over 400 Euros this watch does not offer the quality I expected. When first delivered, I unboxed the watch and noticed that due to a manufacturing error the metal strap was not properly attached to the case. I had to contact the support team to send me a new one. Then after a couple weeks of wearing the watch, I noticed orange paint coming off the dial and spreading inside the case, sticking to the bottom of the glass. After contacting the support team once again, I had to send in the watch to their service center in Hongkong where it was supposed to be repaired. On the return delivery, the watch got stuck in customs and I had to deal with it personally. Usually, international companies deal with customs at the border so the individual customer doesn't have to. Having inspected the watch after returning from the service center, I still notice some specks of paint inside the case which makes me believe that there was no actual repair being done on the watch. All in all, I am disappointed that this pretty looking watch shows such signs of poor manufacturing and that the support team apparently did not actually help to resolve the issue. Unless there is reason to believe the manufacturing quality improves, I will not buy any avi-8 watches anymore.

What a great looking watch, and someone from someone has bought over 25 AVI-8 watches. This is probably the best quality looking one I have bought. I am glad I went for the more subtle look and prefer it on the supplied leather/plastic strap.

Stunning watch and beautiful display case

I was completely blown away by this stunning timepiece. Outstanding build quality and the display case with watch stand/model was a fantastic touch. I originally wanted the Muroc Orange one and was gutted it sold out so quickly but in my humble opinion the Buffalo Blue version is the most visually stunning. As a Bell X-1 enthusiast and historian I’m absolutely delighted to add it to my collection. As someone who knew Chuck Yeager and had a close friendship with launch pilot General Bob Cardenas and General Fred J. Ascani it has a deep personal place in my heart.
