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 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.

Spitfire gun metal grey

This item only took a few days to arrive and came in a sturdy presentation box, the look and feel of the watch is of a much more expensive one. The dial is easy to read and looks great.

Model 4073 Gunmetal Grey Spitfire

This is quite a large watch and has a good weighty feel to it. The bracelet is constructed of nice solid links and gives the whole watch a purposeful look. The crystal back is a nice touch revealing the auto wind rotor in the shape of the iconic Spitfire. The crystal lens on the front runs practically to the edge of the case providing a large viewing area, The dial is clear enough for most people the contrast between major numbers on the face and the gunmetal backing being adequate. The minor numbers in black and the gunmetal back are far less distinguishable, but the large hands and contrasting 5 minute markers allow the dial to be read easily enough. The date window however is very small and the off white numbers and black backing set deeply into the face make reading the date somewhat difficult. The watch is comfortable to wear and the auto wind works well, but the power reserve is limited. A couple of times after removing the watch at night, it needed resetting in the morning. Is it worth the money? There are a large number of watches in this segment, but the uniqueness, features and apparent build quality make this a great competitor and in my mind worth the cost. Time will tell as I have only owned this unit for a few weeks. The watch comes in a reasonable quality box on par with a watch at this price point. The packaging for international shipping needs to beefed up as the shippers managed to bend the corner of the box. One layer of bubble wrap covering the box before being placed in a plastic shipping bag is insufficient.
