The AVI-8 AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II is an aviation-themed analog watch that looks awesome on the wrist. But there is more to like with this watch than just its affordable price. I really love the combination of a vintage-looking leather strap and the PVD coating which all in all makes the watch unique and not just your standard pilot watch.
The watch is not small; it is 42mm in diameter. Despite of that, the watch still sits comfortably on my wrist thanks to its lightweight build. The details of the watch is very remarkable and I don’t see anything that I can complain about it. It’s easy to read the time on the watch. The hands are well-designed and allows you to tell the time with just a quick glance. The black hands are very distinguishable despite of the green dial which I think is a matching combination. The black hands are highlighted with that green dial.
The leather strap is also good and it feels good on your skin. This is a high quality leather with a vintage brown color. The strap is soft and flexible. It has a nice stitching to it which indicates that the strap is crafted masterfully.
The AVI-8 AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II functions really well. Its big black hands follows the standard setup; minutes, hours and seconds. There are three subdials on the watch. The subdial at the top is a 1/10th second indicator, the bottom subdial is the chronograph seconds and the one on the left is the chronograph minutes.
The AVI-8 AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II works on the TMI VD57 movement. It’s a budget Japanese quartz movement but has the same accuracy.

I really appreciate the AVI-8 AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II for its looks. AVI-8 aims to introduce a new approach as to how a watch should look. The watch looks completely different as to what we usually see on other watches. The aviation theme is a refreshing way of giving watches a different look. I appreciate the company behind this watch for giving us new watches to appreciate. If you factor in the price of the AVI-8 AV-4001-04 Hawker Harrier II, you can actually say that it is a bit expensive. But if you think that you can afford its price, the watch is definitely worth buying for.
