AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II AV-4070 Ace of Spades Automatic Watch | Leather strap

By AVI-8


To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Ace of Spades squadron, AVI-8 introduced Ace of Spades automatic that pays tribute to the famed squadron and the AV8 Harriers still in service with this esteemed outfit of the US marine corps. With details taken directly from the shape, form, and function of the Harrier, the watch is a study in avionic inspired design. Measuring 44 mm in diameter the watch is built around a sturdy well-built case featuring a flat scratch-resistant sapphire lens. A crown positioned 2 o'clock marker features a star insignia in a nod to the US Air Force insignia marking its namesake aircraft. The dial of the Ace of Spades is a representation of the best of the AVI-8 brand. Comprised of more than 30 unique pieces, each part of the dial has been carefully designed and laid out in keeping with inspiration provided by the Harrier. The passage of seconds is marked out by a custom modified disc just below the 3 o'clock position and the 24-hour subdial has been constructed with a series of layers and indexes which have been individually facetted applied with a brush and polish finishes. This attention to detail and finishing can be found across the dial. The result is a dial that while offering a clear cut time display, presents a contemporary military industrialized look. Drawing from the incredible power and engineering ingenuity of the Rolls Royce Pegasus engine, a custom-designed and modified turbine shaped rotor brings the wearer closer to the fit and feel of a true aviation-inspired design timepiece.
