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 now-signature Hawker Hunter Retrograde Chronograph is back with a technical refresh and upgrade. Modern and masculine with a solid steel bracelet and unique camouflage PVD coating, 3 specially curated colour palettes are now available.

With an aim to blend into the sky, Air Camo paint jobs were vital in disguising an aircraft's distance and attitude. Deep blue hues are fused with shades of brown to complete this statement piece.

Utilising the iconic 45mm 12-sided silhouette, each solid steel case and bracelet has received a highly technical and complex PVD camouflage treatment that takes up to 10 days to complete. Not only are there several layers of PVD coating applied, but the camouflage pattern itself is done by hand individually.

Although camouflage was first used during WWI, the 3 colourways – Night Camo, Ground Camo and Air Camo – for this capsule collection have been carefully chosen, drawing inspiration from its use over the years in military aircraft, such as the Hunter.

The angled off squared shape echoes the key pieces of the Hunter's own instrumentation, the reference to the famed military jet that first flew in service for the RAF in the early 1950s.

The dial is a perfectly designed assembly of indentations, tension rings and carefully positioned subdial frames.

Completing the timepiece is a robust, solid steel bracelet with deployant clasp, expertly crafted for both style and comfort.
