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 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.

Impressive and Unique Watch with Two Glitches

I love (almost) everything about this watch: The way it wears on my 8.125" wrist, the care taken during finishing, the accurate tachymeter, the 12/24 hour dial, all the P51 cues, and on and on. It's beautiful and several people have asked me: "What kind of watch is THAT?" in very complimentary tones. The price is right, also. It has two problems, one almost trivial and one a little less so: AlmTriv: The mechanical 1/5 second chrono is a lovely thing to behold in action, and very accurate. The pushers that control it are shaped to evoke the wing of a P51 Mustang, which is wonderful, but they are a little clunky and difficult to get the hang of at first. Then you use it a dozen times, learn the quirk, and muscle memory does the rest. AVI-8 could probably do just a little work to make them better. I may do that myself because: LLSO: The lume is very bright but doesn't last long, even when it was charged in direct sunlight for a good period of time. It needs higher quality lume. I am going to do it myself in a month or so. WISHES: ---> True DualTime/GMT hand. ---> If they improve the lume, also PLEASE lume the small dial hands also! That's it. Four Stars and if they fixed the lume duration I would easily give it five. It's a beautiful watch with an AWESOME backstory, and if you like the look you won't be disappointed.

Awesome and affordable

The watch looks incredible and is very different from everything else I have seen. The story behind the name and design is a really neat conversation starter. The chronograph buttons need to be frimly pressed which was a little different than I was used to because of the way that this piece is designed but I love it. The p51 on the back of the case is really beautiful and the entire watch feels genuine and expensive although it is very reasonably priced.

High quality and great design

I was looking for a low to mid priced watch as my daily driver, and AVI-8 caught my eye while browsing. I'm a big aviation enthusiast, and the themes that AVI-8 came up with really resonated with me. I was a bit concerned about the quality of production given the relatively low price, but upon receiving the shipment i was pleasantly surprised. The leather strap is really comfortable and feels high quality, while the main body of the watch appears sturdy and tight - no slack in any of the dials or buttons. The shipping was prompt as well, taking no more than a week to arrive. Overall i'm very satisfied with the purchase and will be looking to AVI-8 watches for my next purchase as well.
