  • AVI-8 is proud to announce the launch of its Spitfire range of timepieces, with the first model titled the Spitfire Automatic Type 300 Edition -paying tribute to the prototype Supermarine developed in 1934. Inspired by the lines, form, and design of the famed World War 2 era fighter, AVI-8 delivers a unique take on a stylish timepiece that draws from one of the most famous aircraft to have ever flown.
  • Perhaps no aircraft evokes so much, so quickly as the Spitfire. On its own, this tidy, elegant fighter was a national hero and a pillar of the Royal Air Force. Its cutting edge design and superior specification gave it a fighting edge in the air against enemy aircraft during WW2.
  • Arguably no battle was more important than the Battle of Britain, where side by side Hawker Hurricanes and Spitfires equipped with Rolls Royce Merlin engines helped successfully defend the skies over Great Britain in what was to be a crucial and pivotal stand against the Nazi Luftwaffe. Agile, quick and creating beautiful slipstreams, the Spitfire has long been an almost artful bookmark in the history of the RAF.
  • In designing a watch that takes its cues from the Spitfire, AVI-8 has looked at both the obvious and subtle details of its design and fabrication, purposefully injecting them into this timepiece. A 42mm diameter case is shaped to follow the elegantly elliptical form of the Spitfire.
