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.

AVI-8’s incredible story of the P-51 Mustang continues with this special timepiece, produced to commemorate the brave pilots who sacrificed their lives during Operation Jubilee on August 19, 1942 – which also marked the first ever P-51 Mustang aerial victory.

AVI-8’s incredible story of the P-51 Mustang continues with this special timepiece, produced to commemorate the brave pilots who sacrificed their lives during Operation Jubilee on August 19, 1942 – which also marked the first ever P-51 Mustang aerial victory.

Forged out of stainless steel, a fluidly brushed and polished 43mm case showcases a custom-built crown guard, with detailing inspired by the P-51 Mustang’s engine exhaust. A domed, scratch resistant sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating crowns the case bezel, with an etched minute track.

A clear and legible dial is perfectly designed with aviation elements taken straight from the P-51 Mustang. Inspired by the instrument panel, a bi-textured, multi-layered dial is complemented by bold Arabic, baton and triangle indexes, lathered with Swiss lume for after-dark visibility.

Under the hood, a bespoke NH35 Japanese automatic movement delivers an ultra-reliable timekeeping experience. An intelligently designed rotor, in tandem with a custom case back plate, draws direct inspiration from the P-51 Mustang’s gyroscopically driven artificial horizon.

Strapping the watch to the wrist is a carefully articulated solid stainless steel H-link bracelet. Each timepiece is paired with an additional premium grade, genuine leather strap, with tri-colour stitching nodding to the fin markings on Hollis Hills’ P-51 Mustang.

To pay tribute to their sacrifices, the colourways are named after the P-51 Mustang fighter squadrons’ bases for Operation Jubilee, in addition to their Wing Command base.

Individually numbered and limited to 1,200pcs, each timepiece comes packaged in a stunning navy blue nylon-wrapped giftbox.
