"If you’re in search of a new timepiece that’s bristling with personality (and a slightly less prohibitive price tag), you could do a whole lot worse than AVI-8’s new Flyboy Royal British Legion Tri-Service Chronograph."
While paying tribute to those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf, the RBL Tri-Service Limited Edition operates as a high-performance and durable military-ready timepiece, incorporating all the necessary build and engineering for use in any field of combat.
Powered by a precise TMI VK series Meca-quartz chronograph movement, the choice of movement is of particular interest given the UK’s Ministry of Defence issue of a watch from Seiko to its military forces in the 1980s to update previous watch selections from British or Swiss watch companies, making it the first quartz chronograph movement delivered as a bonafide piece of military equipment.
A stainless steel case measuring 42mm in diameter is equipped with tidy piston-like chronograph pushers, while a hardened mineral lens delivers clear-cut visibility to the dial and hands. Topping the crown is the Royal British Legion’s red two-petal poppy enclosed in epoxy.
Not forgetting this timepiece's inspiration, the night view of the watch sees the dial face come alive with a luminous field of poppies, adding an important and visually compelling reminder of those who have sacrificed and served.
