OUR STORY

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.

In commemorating the incredible life of an American fighter ace and commander, AVI-8’s P-51 Mustang story continues with a wearable tribute to the exploits and achievements of Colonel Don Blakeslee during WW2.

The new P-51 Mustang is a wearable tribute to the exploits of American fighter ace and commander, Colonel Don Blakeslee, who is regarded as one of the greatest heroes of the Allied forces during WW2.

The dial of the Blakeslee Chronograph leans on both the inner and outer detailing of the P-51 Mustang. Carefully considered and perfectly proportioned, the dial is an effort in legibility and visually arresting layout.

Using the very shape of the P-51 Mustang as inspiration, a 43mm case flows and glides across the wrist with specific micro details that echo the machining and features of this iconic aircraft. The pushers in particular are custom built and shaped within the line of the wings and fuselage.

Utilising the famed Seiko VK series Meca Quartz movement, the P-51 Mustang Blakeslee chronograph is armed with the reliability and precision of quartz split time chronograph timing along with the satisfying and nostalgic hand feel of high beat automatic movements. The result is a high spec timing instrument that looks and operates like no other chronograph.

Available in your choice of a solid stainless steel H-link bracelet or padded genuine leather, once more the attachment of case to wrist is a function of careful attention and observation of the inspirations drawn from the majestic Mustang.
