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.

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.
