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 500 Pieces

As part of our dedicated partnership with the Royal British Legion, the latest chapter in this important collaboration is a decidedly military-inspired limited edition timepiece. Featuring pinpoint TMI hybrid meca-quartz chronograph movement with date, the watch echoes RAF issue chronographs supplied in the 1980s to servicemen. The watch also features an inner turning timing bezel for extra inflight functionality and the dial, hands and subdials are designed and applied for maximum legibility under the most trying conditions. Each of the 500 limited edition watches is uniquely numbered and comes packed with a nylon Nato strap along with its affixed custom hand-crafted genuine leather strap.

£15 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) and Poppyscotland (Scottish Charity No. SC014096), according to where sales are made.

A TIMEPIECE SALUTING THE BRAVE

While paying tribute to those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf, the RBL Tri-Service Limited Edition operates as a high-performance and durable military-ready timepiece, incorporating all the necessary build and engineering for use in any field of combat.

Powered by a precise TMI VK series Meca-quartz chronograph movement, the choice of movement is of particular interest given the UK’s Ministry of Defence issue of a watch from Seiko to its military forces in the 1980s to update previous watch selections from British or Swiss watch companies, making it the first quartz chronograph movement delivered as a bonafide piece of military equipment.

MODERN TIMEKEEPING TECHNOLOGY WITH PURPOSEFUL DETAILS

A stainless steel case measuring 42mm in diameter is equipped with tidy piston-like chronograph pushers, while a hardened mineral lens delivers clear-cut visibility to the dial and hands. Topping the crown is the Royal British Legion’s red two-petal poppy enclosed in epoxy.

Not forgetting this timepiece's inspiration, the night view of the watch sees the dial face come alive with a luminous field of poppies, adding an important and visually compelling reminder of those who have sacrificed and served.

A pristine timepiece to support UK veterans and a great watch brand alike. AVI-8 never fails to deliver a refined timepiece for a great price.

Beautiful poppy ascent watch

It puts a smile on my face when wearing it. You see I purchased this beautiful timepiece to honour my Grandfather, whom was a WW1 veteran. The poppy represents our brave soldiers who fought for freedom. It’s also my 4th AVI-8 watch!. I love this brand

Very nice watch

Very nice looking and unique watch. High quality look and feel. And the strap is made of very solid leather. Only a shipment from Hong Kong somewhat detracts from the feeling of supporting the Royal British Legion

AVI-8

Experience was excellent. Great looking watch. I have small wrists and the band was a little long but functional. Have had a number of compliments from my pilot friends.
