Is AVI-8 a luxury watch brand?

Luxury might not be the right word, but AVI-8 is certainly rich in concept, story and quality. It was founded in Britain in 2012 and its watches originate from the collaboration between pilots, engineers and air travel enthusiasts. There’s also a connection to the British Air Force and military aircraft history in general. AVI-8 watches are affordable, and you’ll be surprised how much thought and craftsmanship goes into pieces with a price tag of less than £300. Today, the brand is UK-based and owned by Dartmouth Brands, which also owns Spinnaker.

What aircraft types are AVI-8 collections named after?

If the names Hawker Hunter, Hawker Harrier, Hawker Hurricane, Spitfire and P-51 Mustang ring a bell, it’s because they are names of genuine military aircraft. AVI-8 takes its inspirations seriously, so there’s real attention to detail and thought behind each range. The AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane, for example, is named for the WWII era single-seat fighter plane. The Spitfire is one of the most famous planes ever flown by the Royal Air Force, while the P-51 Mustang pays homage to the United States Air Force’s iconic fighter-bomber.

Are AVI-8 watches Swiss-made?

No, Dartmouth Brands is based in Hong Kong and AVI-8 watches are made in the region. All AVI-8 watches are powered by Japanese movements, both mechanical and quartz, with stainless steel, mineral crystal and good water resistance.
