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.
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 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 Spitfire Lock Chronograph takes inspiration from the remarkable feats of Eric Lock, whose unwavering courage and exceptional piloting skills defined the Battle of Britain era. This extraordinary collection stands as a testament to his legacy and the Spitfire's enduring symbol of British aviation excellence.
Eric "Sawn Off" Lock's incredible contributions during WWII serve as a poignant reminder of the heroism displayed by the RAF pilots. This collection encapsulates the indomitable spirit of those who served, allowing wearers to carry a piece of history on their wrists.
