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.

Amongst the complex jigsaw of numerous layers and customized parts of the modern skeletonized dial lies a unique one of a kind piece of Harrier XV741's fuselage. Each component has been purposefully designed, drawing inspiration from the Harrier XV741 itself. Applied indexes are generously coated with Swiss lume, resulting in a dial that is not only bold and innovative, but clear and legible.

Measuring 44mm, each detail of the XV741's durable case has been considered. Brushed, polished and chamfered lugs and case bezel are supplemented by unique details such as the XV741's takeoff and landing coordinates from the Transatlantic air race etched into the case sides.

Modern aviation design and flair is supported by a precise and reliable Japanese automatic movement.

Under the hood, the XV741 is powered by a modified 21 jewel, 21,600 vph, Miyota 8 series automatic movement. A custom self-winding rotor has been designed to echo the Harrier's distinguished Rolls Royce Pegasus engine.

Inspired by the code name Operation "Blue Nylon" given to the XV741's participation in the air race, a comfortable leather and nylon strap been designed to attach the case to the wrist. For even greater versatility, each watch comes with an additional nylon and canvas, Velcro-release cuff-like strap.

Packaged in a military styled canvas wrapped gift box, each watch is uniquely numbered as part of a limited edition of 741 pieces.
