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.

Capturing both the power and beauty of the Hunter's Avon engine, the Avon Automatic features a mesmerising dial crafted with care, detail and precision. With performance and speed in mind, this timepiece pays tribute to renowned aerobatic squadrons who flew Hunters with style and panache.

The Black Arrows pays tribute to the RAF's No. 111 Sqn, the Black Arrows. They dazzled the aviation world in 1958 by looping 22 Hawker Hunters in formation, an incredible world record that still stands to this day.

Capturing both the power and beauty of the Hunter's Avon engine, the Avon Automatic features a mesmerising dial crafted with care, detail and precision. With performance and speed in mind, this timepiece pays tribute to renowned aerobatic squadrons who flew Hunters with style and panache.

Taking design cues straight from the Hunter's engine and cockpit, a multi-layered see-through dial offering a view deep into the movement is framed by a serrated dial ring. The dial is finished with machined indexes and bold Flieger style hands, layered with Swiss lume for utmost legibility.

A 44mm robustly manufactured steel case is topped by a domed sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating. The bezel and crown have been machined with a turbine inspired pattern, purposefully echoing the Avon engine.

Showcasing an open-heart Japanese automatic movement, the Avon is a superb piece of timing technology boasting a power reserve of over 40 hours.

Completing the timepiece is an elegantly brushed H-link solid steel bracelet with deployant clasp expertly crafted for both style and comfort.
