Why AVI-8?

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.

The Retrograde Chronograph pays suitable tribute to the famed jet without being cluttered and fussy in its carefully considered design. The Retrograde edition seemingly brings the instrument panel and cockpit of the Hawker Hunter to the wrist of the wearer with a homage and representation that is still utterly practical and balanced as a timepiece.

OUR SIGNATURE 12-SIDED ICON

With the angled-off squared shape that echoes the key pieces of the Hunters own instrumentation, the reference to the famed military jet that first flew in service for the RAF in the early 1950s, is obvious.

FUNCTIONAL AND RELIABLE

The dial itself is a perfectly designed assembly of indentation, tension rings, and carefully positioned subdial frames that continue the look and feel of this watch as a piece of military instrumentation.

Disappointing but Returning Was Too Expensive

The photos showed the face of the watch bright, contrasty, and easy to read. The real watch I got had a crystal that was not so easy to see through, too reflective, and there's not enough contrast between the face and the numbers and hands. It didn't LOOK good, and it's difficult to use. So I will always choose a different watch and this one will sit in my drawer. I tried to return it, but they want it shipped to Hong Kong, which cost US$80. I asked at UPS, FedEx and the USPS. That's a ridiculously high cost to me to return a watch that I feel was misrepresented to me. I may use the watch as a gift, but who would I give it to when it's something I didn't want myself?

I can not use this watch, as the supplied strap was too short to fit my wrist. I will have to buy another strap, before I can ware this watch. Delivery was faster than I expected.

Pleasant to wear

The design is cool. Although the watch is big, it is pleasant to wear. The leather strap is nice, thick, of good quality. However, the night luminescence is very poor : you have to put the watch under a lamp during a certain time to make it appear. The chronometer fonction is also poor. However most users of chronometer watch never use the chronometer. It is like the 4-wheel drive on a SUV! It is not a technical watch, just an appearence of pilot watch. I like it.

Beautiful time peice but...

I absolutely love this watch. Very elegant and I receive plenty of compliments for it. But the band is splitting apart just after where the bar locks into a hole for the band. After my first 24 hours of wearing it I was weary of this watches strap quality and it appears I can't find a replacement strap on av8's website. Av8 could of done a way better job on the strap material.
