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.

In the annals of aviation history, perhaps no fighter plane stirred as much controversy, excitement and technological wonder as the Hawker Harrier “Jump Jet”, which flew for the Royal Air Force and for the US Air Force during the latter part of the 20th century. This incredible aircraft, powered by the famed Rolls Royce Pegasus series of engines provides the aesthetic backdrop for Hawker Harrier II Dual Retrograde Chronograph timepieces.

Measuring 44mm in diameter the case fits snug thanks to the carefully articulated polished lugs, which hugs the case to the wrist. With a coloured anodized aluminium chronograph pusher and matching detail on the crown, the strong circular lines of the case are complemented with appropriate yet finessed detailing that is striking to behold. Inside the case lies the precision Japanese made chronograph retrograde movement that reads off day, date, seconds, minute and 30m readout via a perfectly balanced series of hands, circular discs and registers all precisely weighted to offer clear cut information at an instant whilst never compromising on the time reading functionality of the watch. The hour and minute hands are sword shaped in a classic aviation style, proportionately built-in to stay in sync with the rest of the timepiece's generally modern feel.

Crowning this symphony of lines underneath the lens, the chronograph seconds hand is arrow shaped in a harmonious bi-colour execution again hinting at the watches aeronautical DNA.The strap attaches wearer to watch with a combination leather and canvas strap with stitching designed to echo the harnesses and belts holding the pilot to the sheer potential power of the Harrier.
