Faster, further, higher—Aviation exemplifies Man’s desire to fly and soar above the Earth…
The best engineers, scientists, designers, and pilots have combined over the years to produce cutting-edge machines that were designed for the crucial purpose of a country’s defense. Drawing on the absolute best in materials and resources, a series of iconic planes have emerged over the years that serve as a benchmark to look upon in man’s progress in the sky.
Our collection of timepieces seeks to honor both the aircraft and the untold story of the airmen who have dedicated themselves both in and out of the cockpit to bring these incredible machines to life.
The Hurricane, produced by Hawker Aircraft Ltd for the Royal Air Force was a single seater fighter aircraft that featured in the air battles of World War 2. Sometimes overshadowed by the Spitfire, it was nonetheless the Hawker Hurricane which could truly claim to be the most acclaimed, successful, and reliable aircraft to deliver Allied Victory in the air during WW2. The unsung hero of the Battle of Britain – the most crucial of air victories for the Allies, the Hawker Hurricane delivered more enemy kills than any other aircraft combined.
Featuring a classic aviation inspired dial, the clean dial face features two separate indexes, one for minutes and one for hours, and a date window. Along with a supple and comfortable leather strap, a stainless steel case, and a Japanese quartz movement, the Hawker Hurricane AV-4012 is constructed to be both reliable and impressive.
The range of AVI-8 timepieces are inspired by both 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 a 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 defense 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 enthusiasts alike.
