Why AVI-8?
Close popup


Founded in 2012, the AVI-8 brand inspiration and design excellence originates from the collaboration between pilots and engineers who served in air forces around the world. This combination of design, attention to detail, and passion has resulted in the success that is the AVI-8 story. Every collection is an explicit homage to the planes, people and history of military aviation. Each timepiece brings to life the detail and narrative of the inspiration to delight and engage the wearer.

Faster, Further, Higher - Aviation exemplifies man's desire to fly and soar above the earth…

The best engineers, scientists, designers and pilots have combined over the years to produce cutting edge machines that were designed for the crucial purpose of a country's defence. Drawing on the absolute best in materials and resources, a series of iconic planes have emerged over the years that serve as a benchmark to look upon in man's progress in the sky. Our collection of timepieces seeks to honour both the aircraft and the untold story of the airmen who have dedicated themselves both in and out of the cockpit to bring these incredible machines to life.

Our Mission

Instead of creating another pilot watch, we want to get a deeper look into the shape and form of an aircraft and tell some of the incredible stories behind aviation to help draw out the brand. The vision is to produce watches that are functional yet enjoyable to wear, which also tell a story of both man and machine. We would like to be one of the most respected watch brands in the world by delivering unparalleled excellence in design / specification / value in an ever competitive market. To present timepieces that are timeless yet always relevant in remembering the heroism of the many who have been involved in the chapters of aviation. To build a community of AVI-8 watch fans and enthusiasts globally and shed light on important and interesting facets of aviation history.

Named after the Rolls Royce powered Avon turbojet engine that powered it, the Avon chronograph is replete with design cues and inspiration taken directly from the Hawker Hunter aircraft.

To pronounce the engine's influence, the watch features a slanted serrated bezel across the 45mm case. The case is crafted out of solid stainless steel and features a hardened mineral lens. The crown itself is like an engine of its own, echoing the aesthetic cues seen on the bezel and is paired with matching piston like chronograph pushers.

Bold skeletonized “fleiger” hands are modern in concept yet familiar in function and rotate across the cockpit inspired multi-layered dial with clear luminous baton markings and tachymeter read out on the inside tension ring.

Strapped to the wrist with either a solid steel bracelet or vintage inspired hand-stitched leather strap, this is a wearable, functional and remarkably detailed piece of watchmaking.
