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.

An often forgotten legend, the Hawker Typhoon was a powerful, potent ground attack aircraft that redressed the balance in mainland Europe during WWII. To support the Typhoon's legacy, AVI-8 is honoured to release a limited edition timepiece in partnership with the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group (HTPG).

Each timepiece sold will support the work of the HTPG as they restore Hawker Typhoon RB396, the only surviving combat veteran example of the type known to exist. The aircraft will symbolise the heritage, educate the public and become a permanent memorial to all the crews, of all nationalities, that made the ultimate sacrifice operating the Typhoon.

Attaching the watch to the wrist is a comfortable, premium genuine leather strap with cross-stitched details inspired by the pilot's seat in RB396.

The case back features the name ""Sheila"", drawn from the nose art on RB396. The name was inscribed by RB396 pilot Frank Johnson to honour his wife Sheila.

This timepiece created in partnership with the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group comes in a custom canvas wrapped gift box. Each individually numbered timepiece is part of a limited edition of 800 pieces.

To honour the heritage of this iconic aircraft, each colourway is named after a pilot who had flown RB396 over the years.

Every limited edition timepiece purchased will receive a Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group Bronze Package valued at £25. Each subscription helps the project with the funds required for the rebuild effort and by joining you become part of something truly unique and important to aviation history.
