To commemorate 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 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 industrialised 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 truly aviation inspired design timepiece.
