Hey, so do you remember those two new AVI-8 watches we reviewed last month, from the Centenary collection? Â If not, or if you missed that the first time around, you can check out the reviews hereÂ and here. Â Donâ€™t worry, weâ€™ll wait. Â The reason we bring those reviews up, is that theyâ€™re useful context. Â You see, those very watches are what weâ€™ve got up for our giveaway this month.
Thatâ€™s right! Â Weâ€™ll have two winners this time around. Â Both of these watches feature a 42mm case (12mm thick) with 22mm lugs, and are powered by the Miyota 8218 automatic movement. Â Where things differ, of course, are in the looks department.
The AVI-8 Centenary 1920 looks like, well, like it came from the 1920s era of pilot watches. Â Youâ€™ve got numerals in a great font, and overall, the look of the dial just feels right. Â For this model, the dial is front and center, and just really makes for quite a lovely watch.
On the other hand, the AVI-8 Centenary 1940 takes things a bit more modern. Â Youâ€™ve got the Flinger-Style handset and triangle up at 12 oâ€™clock, and the texture on the sector dial is quite nice. Â In my book, this particular combination of blue and white in a steel case is a great look, even if youâ€™re not particularly into pilot-style watches.
As you are no doubt aware (from our prior articles) the AVI-8 Centenary collection is currently in a sign-up mode, with the official pre-order period opening up on March 7th. Â And then, when things fully launch on March 22nd, then the full retail price of $340Â goes into effect. Â Then again, you can try your hand here at winning one of these watches.
