Born from a meeting of collaborators who came together from the worlds of history, aviation, watchmaking and fashion, the AVI-8 collection of timepieces is a unique re-interpretation of the ubiquitous pilot watch.
While many watch brands have borrowed from, and have pilot ranges, inside their collections – the AVI-8 range is solely dedicated to producing designs that firmly draw from both the men and machines of the skies. Paying tribute to the legacy of brave, raffish, adventurous pilots who commandeer these machines, the aesthetics of vintage and modern military aircraft infuse each watch in the collection making the range as much an homage to man and machine as it is a timekeeping instrument.
Launched formally in Basel in 2016, the collection has gained acclaim for its ability to translate military aviation styling into meaningful men’s timepieces. Utilising an exceptional build discipline, with the best materials, and powered by precision customised Japanese quartz and automatic mechanics each AVI-8 is a robust and hardwearing timepiece with an eye for ingenuity and use of new materials and cutting edge watchmaking technologies rarely seen at this price point.
