There is something magical about aviation and some of this magic rubs off on the world of watchmaking from time to time and there are a number of superb watchmakers out there who are crafting impeccably stylish aviation timepieces and, truth be told, not many are doing it better than AVI-8 and their first rate collection of watches that boast a striking aeronautical theme.
AVI-8 watches are designed to honour the aircraft and airmen of the most iconic age of flight and some of the planes that are being immortalised via AVI-8’s wonderfully vintage style watches include the Lancaster Bomber, Hawker Harrier and the Supermarine Seafire and for any fans of aviation history, there can be few better choices for your wrist than one of the timepieces from AVI-8’s extensive collection of watches celebrating all things airborne.
Though they’re a relative newcomer to the world of watchmaking, AVI-8 are patently not one to rest on their laurels and they have dedicated themselves to creating a first rate collection of aviation style timepieces and after spending a few minutes on their site, you’ll soon see this is an objective that they’ve accomplished admirably. We’re all for watchmaking brands that endeavour to create stylish, functional and affordable mechanical watches and these are all features that typify the AVI-8 brand.
We see a lot of watches here at Coolector HQ and we’ve definitely got a soft spot for those with aviation style design which is why these from AVI-8 have well and truly won us over. Available in many different styles, materials and colourways, there is no doubting that you’ll be able to find a variety to suit your own tastes and budget amongst the top class collection of watches. Take a look at a few of our favourites below:
As you can see from the images above, AVI-8 have got the craftsmanship down to a T and boast one of the most extensive and aesthetically pleasing series of watches for the aviation aficionado and we’re more than a little impressed with the brand’s dedication to manufacturing top class timepieces that aren’t prohibitively expensive.
AVI-8 are regularly updating their series of watches and we’re particular fans of their Flyboy, Lancaster Bomber and Hawker Hurricane series of watches at The Coolector and we’re sure you’ll be able to find a watch to your liking amongst their brilliant inventive, hard-wearing and devilishly dapper timepieces. Unquestionably a watchmaker to keep and eye on but don’t worry if you haven’t time because we’ll certainly be keeping our eye on AVI-8 from now on.
