Following the incredible success of AVI-8’s partnership with the Royal British Legion in 2021, AVI-8 is honoured to announce the release of two new timepieces, beginning with the Flyboy Royal British Legion Falklands 40 Meca-Quartz Limited Edition, produced in line with Remembrance Sunday, to support and commemorate this wonderful charity.

“The Flyboy Royal British Legion Falklands 40 Meca-Quartz Limited Edition has been designed as a tribute to the brave and courageous men and women who served during the Falklands Conflict 40 years ago.”

We are delighted that AVI-8 is launching this next timepiece which has been created with the highest attention to detail and has features inspired by military and aviation design. These classic references pay tribute to military

aircrew and are a poignant reminder of those who have served and sacrificed.

Louise Ajdukiewicz, Assistant Director of High Value Giving Royal British Legion

With 1,500 individually numbered units produced, each Flyboy Falklands 40 Meca-Quartz Limited Edition timepiece sold will contribute to this incredible charity and support those who serve and have served in the British Armed Forces and their families.

Impeccably balanced and legible, the dial features thick applied Arabic indexes with Swiss lume, framed by a concave metallic chapter ring. Stamped at the 6 o’clock position are the coordinates of the Falkland Islands, to remember those who served 40 years ago. Complet- ing the dial is the iconic Royal British Legion two petal poppy on the seconds hand.

Measuring 40mm, a contemporary case with a serrated unidirectional bezel and aluminium ring insert offers a modern alternative to the traditional pilot’s watch. A sophisticated double domed hardened mineral glass with anti-reflective coating offers a clear view into the dial. Topping the crown is a vibrant red two petal poppy enclosed in epoxy.

The Falklands 40 edition is powered by a high-precision Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring an elegant, sweeping seconds hand

commonly found in high-end automatic timepieces.

Attaching the watch to the wrist is a vintage inspired premium handstitched genuine leather strap with side stitching.

Each of the 1500 limited edition timepieces is uniquely numbered and comes packaged in a striking blue and red canvas gift box, resembling the Royal British Legion’s branding.

Due for release 21st October, 2022. Priced at  GBP £190
