AVI-8 AV-4052 Hawker Hunter With 45mm Men's Replica Watch
Inspired by the instrument panel of the Hawker Hunter military jet, the new AVI-8 AV-4052 aviation replica watch continues the brand’s mission of creatively designed pilot’s replica watches that are accessible to a broad range of enthusiasts. Our previous replica watch was the AVI-8 AV-4047 that was inspired by another jet, the Hawker Harrier II, specifically its engine. With an angular case and aggressive but uncluttered dial, our new AV-4052 is worth a look as a fun, everyday wear that’s bound to grab attention.
The angular square case measures in at 45mm wide and 12mm thick with a round dial that features a stopreplica watch minute hands dial, a 24-hour hand, a stopreplica watch second hand, and a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. By all measures, the dial should look a lot busier and cluttered than it does, but the generous dial size and legibility of the hands and subdials makes for a cohesive replica watch.
Inspired by the instrument panel and cockpit of the Hawker Hunter fighter jet used by the RAF, the AVI-8 AV-4052 Replica case has piston inspired pushers and a multi-layered dial that is a tasteful and bold homage to this jet. The stainless steel case will have a water resistance of 50M, so the replica watch can handle everyday exposure to the elements and can do well in casual situations like a trip to the beach.
We decided to use a quartz chronograph movement for this replica watch, which not only helps keep initial cost of purchase down but prevents the buyer from being faced with the maintenance costs of a mechanical movement that has all the complications featured in the AVI-8 AV-4052 Replica.
