Aviation-themed watch company AVI-8 has once again partnered with the non-profit organization, Tuskegee Airmen Inc. for the new AV-4103 Flyboy Tuskegee Airmen Meca-Quartz Limited Edition. Each one of the four colorways gets a 40mm polished and brushed stainless steel case, a textured dial, flight instrument-style hands, mineral crystal glass, and a super-accurate Meca-Quartz movement. The colors reference one of the four original squadrons of the all-African American 332nd Fighter Group and commemorates their heroism. Each timepiece comes with a matching 2-piece leather strap and an extra Nato strap. Special packaging includes exclusive illustrations by ex-Navy man, Derrick Whitfield. 10% of the proceeds of each watch sold will go to support TAI youth programs. You can purchase one directly from AVI-8, but the limited number of watches (1,195 in total) are going fast.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
