AVI-8 Tuskegee Airmen Meca-Quartz Limited Edition, Lucera #AV-4103-02
AVI-8 is proud to collaborate and support the Tuskegee Airmen Inc, (TAI) for a second year to produce a limited-edition timepiece that commemorates, remembers, and reflects on the Tuskegee experience.
10% of the net sales of each timepiece sold goes towards the important work of the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. supporting youth programs and providing educational assistance to those pursuing flight training and other higher education pursuits.
The important story and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen are one of bravery, skill, and courage under fire both in the air and on the ground. Their contribution to the advancement of American aviation and American history cannot be forgotten. This limited edition of only 1,195 pieces is a unique once-only build not to be missed.
Powering the Tuskegee Airmen limited edition is a precise “Meca-quartz” Japanese TMI movement for pinpoint precision and “sweeping” second hand motion. The watch is water resistant to 50m and features Swiss luminous filling across its clearly marked out legible dial face for quick readability in low light conditions. The Flyboy Tuskegee Airmen Meca-Quartz Limited Edition hugs the wrist courtesy of a genuine leather strap again echoing the colours found in the liveries of the Tuskegee squadrons, and an extra nylon NATO strap for added versatility and wear.
Each colourway of this special edition is named after a location the famed Tuskegee Airmen squadrons were based at in the past. The watch comes packaged in a handsomely appointed gift box with unique and striking artwork of iconic Tuskegee Airmen, specially created by designer Derrick Whitfield.
For this launch, AVI-8 has collaborated and commissioned a series of portraits of celebrated members of the Tuskegee Airmen, by Atlanta based illustrator, graphic designer and artist Derrick Whitfield. Derrick is the owner of the Whitfield Designs Company and the winner of the Black Made Illustration Award in 2022. His unique style and portraiture has been recognized widely and we are proud to collaborate with Derrick on our work to celebrate and commemorate the legendary Tuskegee Airmen.
