FLYBOY ROYAL BRITISH LEGION FOUNDER’S CHRONOGRAPH & FLYBOY ROYAL BRITISH LEGION CHAIRMAN’S MECA-QUARTZ Limited Edition

After the success of the Royal British Legion release in May 2021,
AVI-8 is honoured to announce the launch of two new timepieces,
the Flyboy Royal British Legion Founder’s Chronograph
Limited Edition and the Flyboy Royal British Legion
Chairman’s Meca-Quartz Limited Edition, produced to support
and commemorate this important charity in their centennial year.
With an outstanding 1,000 units produced for each of the new
models, every timepiece sold will help the RBL continue
their vital work supporting those who serve and have served in
the British Armed Forces and their families.
The two new timepieces have been inspired by the charity’s first
Chairman, Sir Thomas Frederick Lister, and the first President, Field
Marshall Earl Haig. The Royal British Legion was formed by Lister and
Haig in the aftermath of the First World War to fight for the rights of
those who had given so much and come back to so little. Today, the
charity continues to stand with the Armed Forces community and
challenge injustices to ensure all those who have served and
sacrificed on our behalf get the fair treatment and recognition they
deserve.


“We are incredibly proud to launch these new timepieces from our
partnership collection with AVI-8 and are grateful for their support. In
the RBL’s centenary year, we remain dedicated to our mission of
creating better futures for all those who serve and have served with
the British Armed Forces. The funds raised from these limited edition
timepieces will ensure we can continue this work in the years to
come.”
Assistant Director of High Value Giving Royal British Legion
Louise Ajdukiewicz

Every timepiece is presented with an exclusive RBL 2021 dated poppy lapel pin. Since it was first worn as an act of Remembrance just over 100 years ago, the poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces, past and present.

FLYBOY ROYAL BRITISH LEGION FOUNDER’S CHRONOGRAPH

Offering legibility and a balanced aesthetic, the Founder’s Limited Edition is a true bicompax chronograph fused with
vintage elements, such as cathedral style hands and a telemeter on the chapter ring. Completing the dial is a striking
red poppy on the chronograph seconds hand as a symbol of Remembrance.
At 40mm in diameter, the case is perfectly sized and proportioned. An “onion” style crown draws from trench watches
in the early 20th century and became a quintessential feature later used in the first pilot watches. Topping the crown
is a beautiful red two petal poppy encased in epoxy.
The Founder’s edition features a dependable Japanese meca-quartz chronograph movement that blends the best of
both worlds – quartz accuracy and the crisp hand feel of a mechanical movement.
A vintage inspired supple handstitched genuine leather strap ensures a comfortable and snug fit.

Priced at £225 GBP / $285 USD, the Flyboy Royal British Legion Founder’s Chronograph Limited Edition is due for release on October 22, 2021

£15 from the sale of this product will be paid to Royal British Legion Trading Limited (Company no. 4783730 registered in England and Wales) which gives its taxable profits to The Royal British Legion (Charity no. 219279). For more information please visit:

Legion’s iconic two petal poppy is stamped at the 6 o’clock position as a mark of Remembrance.
Comfortably sized at 40mm, the brushed and polished case features a unidirectional bezel and an elegant double domed
hardened mineral glass with anti-reflective coating. An “onion” style crown drawn from trench watches in the early 20th
century is expertly completed by a red poppy encased in epoxy.
Powering the Chairman’s edition is a reliable Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring a charming, smooth, sweeping
seconds hand typically found in premium modern mechanical movements.
