The Centenary editions all share the workhorse reliability of the 21 Jewelled Japanese Miyota 8218 automatic movement. With the date display at the 3 o’clock position, the seconds subdial at the 5’oclock position has been fashioned carefully and matches a corresponding applied 3-dimensional roundel designed into the dial at the 10’oclock position. The effect is to create a fluid symphony of geometric shapes that clearly layout the dial for an easy to understand time readout while adding elements of design that make for a watch that is more than just a mere timekeeper. A genuine hand-stitched leather strap attaches the case to the wrist for a robust, yet snug fit that balances between adding a rugged yet sophisticated finish to the watch.

Description

1960’s and 1980s edition of the Centenary Flyboy

In commemoration of the RAF’s 100th year anniversary, Avi-8 is proud to announce the 1960’s and 1980s edition of the Centenary Flyboy. Following in the success of the 1920’s and 1940s issues, which have since sold out, the newest releases in this once only drop of Avi-8 timepieces look to be similarly well received. Utilising the same chassis, and movement each collection nonetheless hints at each decade of aviation achievement.

The jet age

With the advent of the jet age, the 1960s reflected a growing level of confidence and progress in the RAF. Aircraft such as the Lightning, the V-Class strategic bombers and of course the iconic Hawker Hunter took to the sky broadening and sharpening Britain’s offensive and defensive airborne capabilities. The 1960s edition of the Centenary Flyboy measures a comfortably apt 43 in diameter, with a scratch resistant sapphire lens topping of the 316 L Stainless steel case which is built with an exhibition see through caseback.

Case

Fashioned out of marine grade 316 L Stainless Steel, the Centenary editions all measure 43 mm in diameter and 15 mm in thickness (Centenary 1980s – 18.0mm). The case features a Scratch resistant Sapphire lens, an exhibition see through caseback. Lugs open to 22mm in width. Each case features a fine brush finish across the bezel, case body with a finely tuned polished chamfered edge on the lugs.#
