Why AVI-8?
Close popup

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.

The bestselling XV741 Blue Nylon Automatic is now available in stylish new colours. After the incredible reception of the limited edition launch, we have curated 3 additional unique and striking colourways suitable for any occasion.

Detailed, layered and beautifully crafted, the XV741 Blue Nylon Automatic is the second and final instalment of our tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Transatlantic Air Race from London to New York won by Tom Lecky-Thompson in his Harrier XV741 in 1969.

Each component has been purposefully designed, drawing inspiration from the Harrier XV741 itself. Applied indexes are generously coated with Swiss lume, resulting in a dial that is not only bold and innovative, but clear and legible.

Measuring 44mm, each detail of the XV741's durable case has been considered. Brushed, polished and chamfered lugs and case bezel are topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire lens with anit-reflective coating.

Modern aviation design and flair is supported by a precise and reliable Japanese automatic movement.

Under the hood, the XV741 is powered by a modified 21 jewel, 21,600 vph, Miyota 8 series automatic movement. A custom self-winding rotor has been designed to echo the Harrier's distinguished Rolls Royce Pegasus engine.

Inspired by the code name Operation "Blue Nylon" given to the XV741's participation in the air race, a comfortable leather and nylon strap been designed to attach the case to the wrist.
