Following the sell-out success of the first AVI-8 x Help for Heroes partnership timepiece introduced in 2020, today the brand announces the launch of the AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane Help for Heroes Chronograph Limited Edition, once again in support of the incredible British charity.
Dartmouth Brands, the parent company that owns AVI-8, will donate a minimum of £25,000 to Help for Heroes from the partnership which equates to a minimum of 5% of the sale price of this product.
Limited to only 500 pieces, funds raised will directly help the charity to provide physical, psychological, welfare and financial support to those with injuries and illnesses attributable to their service in the British Armed Forces. Something important to mention, with Help For Heroes regular income forecast to drop by 30% as a result of the pandemic any support to the this wonderful charity is very important.
Although the dial layout hits several vintage notes, this is where the watch really shines. A matte black canvas is paired with a white chapter ring and recessed subdials, providing an inverse panda
Playful pops of navy blue, red and light blue are expertly implemented in the subdials and hands,
drawing inspiration from the Help for Heroes tri-colour motif. The three colours represent the
charity’s support for those who served in the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.
Measuring 43mm, the case comes in a timeless silhouette, expertly crafted for durability and style.
The solid frame is elegantly finished with a brushed PVD black coat. The crown is topped with a
debossed roundel inspired by British Hurricanes of WW2.
The Flyboy Engineer Automatic Help for Heroes Limited Edition is £265 and is available in the AVI-8’s website
Keep in mind there are only 500 pieces and has to be pre-ordered and the shipping will start on February 10th 2021.
