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.

To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Ace of Spades squadron, AVI-8 introduced the Ace of Spades Automatic that pays tribute to the famed squadron and the AV8 Harriers still in service with this esteemed outfit of the US Marine Corps.

With details taken directly from the shape, form and function of the Harrier, the watch is a study in aviation inspired design.

Measuring 44mm in diameter the watch is built around a sturdy well-built case featuring a flat scratch-resistant sapphire lens. A crown positioned at the 2 o’clock marker features a star insignia in a nod to the US national air insignia marking its namesake aircraft.

The dial of the Ace of Spades is a representation of the best of the AVI-8 brand. Comprised of more than 30 unique pieces, each part of the dial has been carefully designed and laid out in keeping with inspiration provided by the Harrier.

The passage of seconds is marked out by a custom modified disc just below the 3 o’clock position and the 24-hour subdial has been constructed with a series of layers and indexes which have been individually facetted and applied with brush and polish finishes.

This attention to detail and finishing can be found in abundance across the dial. The result is a dial that while offering a clear cut time display, presents a contemporary military industrialized look. Drawing from the incredible power and engineering ingenuity of the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine, a custom designed and modified turbine shaped rotor brings the wearer closer to the fit and feel of a truly aviation inspired design timepiece.
