The brand was created in 2006 as a collaboration between a watch manufacturing company and a group of ex-aviation industry professionals. We have used the story, the heroism and the engineering of both Military Aviation and Military Aviators to create a line of timepieces that pay tribute to iconic planes such as the Hawker Hurricane, the unsung hero of WW2, or the Hawker Hunter which was the first jet plane to herald a new era in airborne warfare.
The range of AVI-8 timepieces are inspired by both the men and machines of some of the most significant periods in Aviation History.
Paying tribute to iconic aircraft and the brave men who endured adverse conditions, to fly and to fight and to win, these timepieces are reminder of the guts, determination and sheer will of those who pushed minds and muscle in the development of cutting edge aircraft whose role was critical to the very defence of a nation.
Each timepiece is designed with an eye for detailing found in the world of aviation and with a spirit from the period when these great planes flew. Built to exacting specifications of durability, legibility and functionality these are no mere watches but critical pieces of instrumentation as useful to professional and enthusiast alike.
