AVI-8 Flyboy AV4076-33
Often referred to as “the founding fathers of American combat aviation,” the 38 pilots of the Lafayette Escadrille who flew for France beginning in 1916 before the United States entered World War I, were the very nucleus of the U.S. Army Air Service when it was formed in 1918.
AVI-8’s tribute to the Lafayette Escadrille is a true compliment to the spirit of the Flyboy, the colloquial term used to describe these dangerous, rakish, courageous and patriotic warriors of the sky.
In imagining a watch bearing the Lafayette name, AVI-8 uses design bookmarks from the late 1910s to 1920s, fused with practical and modern watch mechanics and precision.
