AVI-8 x Help for Heroes
Following the success of the first Help for Heroes timepiece, AVI-8 has decided to support this incredible British charity once more, with the launch of the Hawker Hurricane Help for Heroes Chronograph Limited Edition.
Limited to only 500 pieces, funds raised will directly help the charity to provide physical, psychological, welfare and financial support to those with injuries and illnesses attributable to their service in the British Armed Forces.
Together, We Can Make A Difference..
Behind each watch is a moving story of recovery, told by a Help for Heroes veteran. For AVI-8, this is RAF veteran Matt Neve. As an RAF veteran who experienced the horrors of war when he was deployed to Iraq on Op Telic 1, Matt is a great example of a wounded veteran who has rebuilt his life through the recovery services offered by Help for Heroes.
Matt himself has greatly benefited from the charity’s support system, accessing the Help for Heroes Hidden Wounds service and fellowship group. He has also engaged with the charity’s sports and Invictus Games programmes, receiving a grant from Help for Heroes to fund specialise sporting equipment. He has now gone one step further and supports the charity by reaching out and helping others that need support.
An Exclusive Timepiece Supporting Veterans
Although the dial layout hits several vintage notes, this is where the watch really shines. A matte black canvas is paired with a white chapter ring and recessed subdials, providing an inverse panda palette.
Playful pops of navy blue, red and light blue are expertly implemented in the subdials and hands, drawing inspiration from the Help for Heroes tri-colour motif. The three colours represent the charity's support for those who served in the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.
Expertly Crafted for Durability and Style
Measuring 43mm, the case comes in a timeless silhouette, expertly crafted for durability and style. The solid frame is elegantly finished with a brushed PVD black coat. The crown is topped with a debossed roundel inspired by British Hurricane's of WW2.
On the wrist, the timepiece wears well. A supple and sturdy brushed PVD black stainless steel bracelet is provided with an additional premium genuine leather strap to quickly and easily change your style.
This timepiece created in partnership with Help for Heroes comes in a stunning tri-colour canvas wrapped box. Each individually numbered timepiece is part of a limited edition of 500 pieces.
