AVI-8 is proud to collaborate with Capcom
AVI-8 is proud to collaborate with Capcom to partner on a unique limited-edition timepiece inspired by the epic, vertically scrolling 1942 shoot ‘em up video game.
The game, launched in 1984, was an iconic one and has been heralded as one of the best ever of its type, blending a history themed narrative for what was cutting edge gameplay and graphics that helped break Capcom as a leading game publisher.
AVI-8, a brand of watches and accessories inspired by the worlds of military aviation, leans on the game's iconic pixelated artwork, story and background to develop a watch that relives the 80s video arcade era. Through an apt association and blend of iconic design, shape, and detail, this timepiece retells the story of one American airman’s solo journey in a P-38 Lightning from Midway to Okinawa in an attempt to turn the tide of the war in the Pacific.
The Flyboy Capcom 1942 Automatic Limited Edition is a distinctive timepiece available in a choice of 2 colourways. It is a limited-edition production of only 300 pieces each and is powered by a Japanese Seiko TMI NH35 Automatic movement.
Available from the 28th July at Avi-8.co.uk, £365-£385
