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.

Limited Edition of 1,775 Pieces

In collaboration with the Royal British Legion, this Limited Edition carries a profound purpose. The design embraces the traditional poppy symbol, prominently displayed at the 12 o’clock index and on the crown, as a heartfelt homage to the bravery of the 617 Squadron and a reminder of the sacrifices made during Operation Chastise.

£17 from the sale price of this AVI-8 timepiece 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) and Poppyscotland (Scottish Charity No. SC014096), according to where sales are made.

A Design Inspired by History

Drawing inspiration from the cockpit instrumentation and colors of the legendary Avro Lancaster Bomber, the dial of the Dambuster Limited Edition becomes a captivating study of both the men and the machine that played pivotal roles in this significant wartime event. Beyond its symbolic representation, this watch is a precise and functional field timepiece, empowered by the capable and precise hybrid mechanics of the meca-quartz movement.

Partnering with the Royal British Legion

At AVI-8, we are deeply honoured to stand alongside the Royal British Legion in our shared commitment to honour the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces. With immense pride, we've contributed over £55,000 through the sales of our bespoke timepieces since 2021, assisting in providing vital services and support to veterans, serving personnel, and their families. Our contribution from this launch aims to further bolster RBL’s efforts in being an unwavering pillar of support for the Armed Forces community today.

RBL Dambusters Onyx Black

As with my previous purchase, I found this watch to be excellent, & of course the fact money goes to the Royal British Legion, of which I am a member here in Northern France, where we are kept very busy! to follow-on from this watch, how about one to commemorate the Vickers Wellington? My late uncle was lost whilst flying one (37 sqn, P9215) off the coast of Norway on 30.04.1940 Thank you!
