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.

Capturing both the power and beauty of the Hunter's Avon engine, the Avon Automatic features a mesmerising dial crafted with care, detail and precision. With performance and speed in mind, this timepiece pays tribute to renowned aerobatic squadrons who flew Hunters with style and panache.

The Black Arrows pays tribute to the RAF's No. 111 Sqn, the Black Arrows. They dazzled the aviation world in 1958 by looping 22 Hawker Hunters in formation, an incredible world record that still stands to this day.

Capturing both the power and beauty of the Hunter's Avon engine, the Avon Automatic features a mesmerising dial crafted with care, detail and precision. With performance and speed in mind, this timepiece pays tribute to renowned aerobatic squadrons who flew Hunters with style and panache.

Taking design cues straight from the Hunter's engine and cockpit, a multi-layered see-through dial offering a view deep into the movement is framed by a serrated dial ring. The dial is finished with machined indexes and bold Flieger style hands, layered with Swiss lume for utmost legibility.

A 44mm robustly manufactured steel case is topped by a domed sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating. The bezel and crown have been machined with a turbine inspired pattern, purposefully echoing the Avon engine.

Showcasing an open-heart Japanese automatic movement, the Avon is a superb piece of timing technology boasting a power reserve of over 40 hours.

Completing the timepiece is an elegantly brushed H-link solid steel bracelet with deployant clasp expertly crafted for both style and comfort.
