The colloquial term flyboy was and is often used to describe a pilot belonging to the air force.
Ever since the turn of military aviation in WWI – the term has stuck as a casual reference to describe young men, who if they were boys on the ground were definitely not boys in the air. Their heroism, swagger and bravado – especially in the hair-raising days of open cockpit combat have been immortalized in modern history.
This irrepressible group with their undeniable charisma and sense of duty – inspire this range of casual timepieces. The military colors and influence in shape give credence and strength to this line of watches designed with panache and flair.
The Genuine Leather Nato Strap attached to the watch is beautifully supple -and will wear to add more character and charm over years of use. The solid, robust solid stainless steel construction while simple in design belies the subtle detailing of the coin edge crown with roundel embossing, or the slightly textured dial face that sets off the large visible, luminous indexes with some harmony to the rest of the timepiece. Powered by the robust, accurate and ever reliable precision Miyota Japanese Self-winding automatic movements visible through the exhibition see through case back - the Flyboy is an exception example of AVI-8s blending of timepiece fashion, history and style.
