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.

There's perhaps no tale more befitting of the continuation of AVI-8's Spitfire story than that of Eric "Sawn Off" Lock, a true WWII hero who was the highest scoring British-born RAF pilot in the Battle of Britain, and the inspiration behind our Spitfire Lock Chronograph.

Instruction Manual

Drawn from the iconic Spitfire


Fusing timeless and modern watchmaking aesthetics, the Lock features a clean, symmetrical and highly legible twin-register dial layout drawn from the details within the iconic Spitfire's cockpit gauges.

A 42mm case is inspired by the Spitfire's famous curved silhouette, with custom flowing pushers designed to complement this feature. Taking further inspiration from the Spitfire's body, micro detailing on the case sides are designed to recreate the panels on the aircraft.

Mechanical craftsmanship and quartz accuracy

Powering the Lock is a tried and tested Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring a 1/5 split second readout with instant fly-back reset function, encapsulating the true art of modern watchmaking technology.

Completing the timepiece is a comfortable, handcrafted genuine leather, vintage pilot-style strap that tapers from 22mm to 20mm.
