Perfectly proportioned and sized, the 42 mm diameter 316 L Stainless steel case is affixed with a scratch resistant slightly domed sapphire lens and see through exhibition caseback. A vintage inspired slightly oversized “pumpkin” crown is used, reminiscent of those found on early pocket watch to wrist watch conversions in the early 1900s. The crown in addition to its serrated edge design has the blue and round circles of the Royal Air Force roundel applied as an epoxy filled cabochon.

The dial is explicitly a homage to 1920s watch and typeface design. Neo-gothic fonts mark out the hours with ample super LumiNova for enhanced low light visibility. Railroad minute markings frame the dial suitably. Cathedral or squelette hour and minute hands have been chosen, reminiscent of watches of the era, as well as to provide clarity and legibility in time readout. Powering the timepiece is the reliable Miyota 8218 uniquely customized by the Avi-8’s own watchmakers with a signature “Centenary” edition rotor and subdial seconds display at the 5 o’clock position, with date display at the 3 o’clock position.

Echoing the earliest iterations of pilot watches as refashioned pocket watches the robust shape of the 1920s edition is as much a bookmark within the history of watch design as it is a functional and robust field watch. Hugging the watch to the wearers wrist is sturdy yet supple handstitched buffalo hide leather strap that is comfortable yet long lasting.
