Description

The AVI-8 Flyboy Spirit Of Tuskegee Limited Edition Parrish Chronograph Watch AV-4109-03 is a tribute to the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen and the remarkable journey of Captain Matthew Quy and his wife Tina. Their dedication to preserving history through the restoration of a vintage Stearman biplane, later discovered to be one of the aircraft used to train the illustrious Tuskegee Airmen, inspired this timepiece. The plane, aptly renamed "Spirit of Tuskegee," became a mobile educational tool, bringing the story of these pioneering aviators to air shows and events nationwide.

In honor of this legacy, AVI-8 commits to donating 10% of the net sales from each watch sold to support the Tuskegee Airmen Inc.'s youth programs and educational initiatives, furthering the cause of historical education and aviation inspiration for future generations.

The watch itself is powered by a reliable Japanese Meca-quartz chronograph movement, offering both the precision of quartz and the tactile response of a mechanical chronograph. Encased in robust stainless steel, the case measures 44mm in diameter and 15mm in thickness, with a lug to lug distance of 50mm, ensuring a substantial presence on the wrist. The dial, presented in black, features applied indexes that are luminous, ensuring visibility in low light conditions, a tribute to the functionality required by aviators.

An anti-reflection coated mineral lens covers the dial, minimizing glare and enhancing legibility. The watch is equipped with a pull-out crown, facilitating easy adjustments. It comes with a 22mm black genuine leather strap, offering comfort and durability, alongside an additional blue nylon strap, allowing wearers to customize their look. Water resistance is rated at 5 ATM, making the watch suitable for everyday wear but not for submerged activities.

Weighing in at 90 grams, the AVI-8 Flyboy Spirit Of Tuskegee is substantial yet balanced for daily wear. Each timepiece is backed by a 2-year international warranty, ensuring reliability and peace of mind.

This limited edition chronograph is more than a timekeeping device; it's a piece of history, a wearable tribute to the bravery, innovation, and spirit of the Tuskegee Airmen and those who strive to keep their story alive.
