Default Up Up And It's On it's Way

AVI-8 Men's AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II



Got the above watch new and at such an exceptional price,I just couldn't resist I will post some wrist shots when it lands.



I've already received the above AVI-8 Automatically Adjusting GMT Desk Clock and it's great. I would order another but they are sold out!

Thanks for viewing...over and out..

Thanks guys...I was reading a WW II aviation book and all the tribulations they endured and when I saw these items on sale,I had to pull the trigger. The desk clock is very nice,I will add some wrist shots when the watch arrives. I have a small "novelty" section within my collection and these items fit right in.

The AVI-8 Hawker Harrier II Landed Today






The Hawker Harrier II made a vertical landing today during our third day of heavy lake effect snow. I must say that I'm impressed with the look and quality of this watch. It came with a really nice storage box,warranty card and the history of the Hawker Harrier II. The chrono feature works well and resets accurately. I love the dial,it truly adds a rugged military feel to this piece and up till now, I had nothing like it in my collection.

Well done AVI-8

Yeah cool Howard ! Had thought this dial looked great before it arrived, but after seeing your pictures here can't believe how outstanding it is. First of all the green itself is unique, as is the dial set-up, and levels to it. The texture is the icing on the cake though ! Never have seen that before, and with the black finish of the watch it's too good ! Congratulations Howard ! ..P.S. I hope everything is alright with you up there with all of that snow. Be safe !
