AVI-8 21-Jewel Automatic 1960's Styled Centenary Flyboy #AV-4060-01

In commemoration of the Royal Air Force’s 100th year anniversary, AVI-8 has introduced a 1960’s edition of their Centenary Flyboy. This 1960's styled Centenary Flyboy watch measures 42mm in diameter and it is powered by a reliable 21-jewel Miyota 821A automatic movement which is viewable via an exhibition window caseback. It has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for a clear view of the dial.

Underneath the gently domed sapphire lens, the watch reflects a careful level of detail which adds depth and interest upon view. Hand-applied brushed finish indices at the hour are combined with Arabic indexes designed in an instrumentation-like fashion to echo the details in the aircraft of the era.

The hour and minute hands are sword-shaped with a vertical brushed finish and a generous application of Swiss SuperLuminova to add functional legibility in all conditions. The inner dial is translucent, giving a subtle view of the inner mechanics of the watch. The date display is at the 3 o’clock position, and the seconds sub-dial is at the 5 o’clock position on the dial. The watch comes on a genuine leather strap with retro hand stitched tie-offs at the lugs.

4 of 5 Great First Automatic Watch! December 27, 2019
Reviewer: Marshall Feland from Bismarck, ND United States  
We have been watching TGV and Marc on Youtube for a couple of years now.  Life being life the money never gets saved and we end up still rocking the $50 Casio Marlin diver(which is a great watch by the way).
This Black Friday we saw on Marc's channel that he was having some sales on AVI8s.  Having wanted a pilot and a automatic for sometime this fit the bill perfectly.  The fit and finish are great!  The detail on everything is much better then I expected!  It does appear to run on the faster side so every few days I do notice it being about a minute fast, which from what I understand about cheaper autos is completely normal.  The display back is super cool and the packaging it came in was fun and super engaging to open!
The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the keeper on the band did break after the second day I wore it.
I am over all super happy with this watch and the service I received from Long Island.
