QUICK RELEASE in Partnership with AVI-8

Honor Legacy with the Spitfire P8331 Laguna Chronograph LE From AVI-8

AVI-8 has released another LE partnership, this time with Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy (LSL) organization. 450 pieces are made commemorating the famous 303 Squadron and support the LSL’s work to restore one of the original Spitfire P8331’s to airworthy condition. This iconic aircraft, steeped in history, was last flown by Wing Commander Piotr Laguna, who led the 303 Squadron to become the most successful squadron during the Battle of Britain.

This timepiece aims to create a lasting recognition to the incredible contributions of the 18,000 Polish pilots and ground crew who courageously and skillfully protected Britain throughout WWII but were overlooked for the 1946 Victory March through London.

In commemorating the 303 Squadron and the bravery of Piotr Laguna, we have redesigned our Spitfire Meca-Quartz Chronograph with unique details and features to pay tribute to their incredible abilities and sacrifices during the Battle of Britain and throughout WWII.

A clean, symmetrical and highly legible twin-register dial layout inspired by details within the Spitfire’s instrument panel are complemented by pops of red and white, whilst a 303 Squadron badge has been stamped at the 9 o’clock subdial serving as a constant reminder of their bravery. Applied indexes are lathered in Swiss lume for great visibility in low-light conditions.

Measuring 42mm in diameter, the solid steel case and custom flowing pushers are drawn from Spitfire P8331’s iconic curved silhouette. Drawing further inspiration from the Spitfire’s body, micro detailing on the case sides are designed to recreate the panels on the aircraft being restored.


The limited edition timepiece is equipped with a reputable VK series Japanese meca-quartz movement featuring a flyback chronograph reset and 1/5 split second readout, capturing the true art of modern watchmaking technology. Completing the timepiece is a comfortable, handcrafted genuine leather, vintage pilot-style 22mm strap with red and white cross-stitching and strap loops nodding to the incredible legacy of the 303 Squadron.

Uniquely numbered and limited to just 450 pieces, each timepiece comes packaged in a striking 303 Squadron inspired red and white nylon wrapped gift box. The AVI-8 Spitfire P8331 Laguna Chronograph LE is available for $285 in the AVI-8 shop here.
