Representing speed, agility and precision, the Swifts are one of two aerobatic teams in the world that have been flying real military aircrafts since 1991. Their prestigious status has granted them the honor to fly the renowned MIG-29 fighter jet, which has gained this premier aerobatic display team from Russia international recognition at countless air shows.
Since 2006, the AVIATOR brand has been a proud partner. Equipped with AVIATOR Chronographs, each member of the Swifts rely on their watches for their proven track record of performing under extreme conditions, high speeds, altitudes, and thrust.
Serving as ambassadors for Greece, ZEUS is known for being the first and only demo team to fly an F-16 Block 52+ aircraft configured with Conformal Fuel Tanks. During a twelve minute performance, pilots reach Mach .94 with accelerating forces up to 9.5Gs as they climb from 100-meters to 5-Kilometers up into the sky.
Honoring their remarkable airpower, AVIATOR has produced a Special Limited Edition watch in tandem with the ZEUS Aerobatics team that features their insignia and the legendary F-16 on both the dial and case back.
The mission of the 338 Squadron is to maintain a high level of readiness and effectiveness. Assuming their role on fighter bomber missions, this team commands the sky with the F-84G Thunderjet, F-84F Thunderstreak and F-4E Phantom II.
In partnership with the Hellenic 338 “Ares” Squadron, AVIATOR has produced an iconic watch bearing the insignia of 338 and the aircraft on the dial and case back.
One of the oldest and most historic Hellenic Air Force squadrons, 348 retired alongside the RF-4E Phantom II aircraft after over 64 years of continuous missions.
To commemorate their feats, AVIATOR in partnership with the 348 Tactical Reconnaissance Squad, released a limited 150 Commemorative Edition watches, bearing the 348 Squadron’s logo, special memoriam inscription, and the RF-4E Phantom II aircraft on second hands of the Chronographs.
In 2001, Vitaly Robertus was the first to build jet turbine engines in model aircrafts. This innovation triggered a historic popularity of radio-controlled jet models. Aiming to further popularize airplane modeling, Robertus and his crew formed RUSJET, and have since become active participants and sponsors of regional and international tournaments.
AVIATOR shares RUSJET’s visionary spirit and is proud to see all of its members outfitted with AVIATOR branded uniforms and watches. Additionally, RUSJET is an active participant in research and development for new products.
It is said that some wars name themselves. During the “Great War” it took an epic journey by Lt. Francis “Bunny” Bremner in 1916 to make a name for the single-seat Bristol Scout 1264. After ninety-minutes of intense flight and the guidance of Bunny’s wristwatch, the aircraft’s first successful landing on the island of Thassos proved to be a victory for the Allies.
The Bristol Scout Limited Edition watch is tribute to the steadfast bravery of WWI aviators and this iconic British aircraft. With a distinctive large pocket-style watch casing and vintage strap, it is available in two editions. The first commemorates the RNAS WWI missions on the island of Thassos with engravings of the island and aircraft on the case back (limited to ten pieces). The other features a case back engraving of the heroic Bristol Scout 1264 and is limited to 150 pieces worldwide.
Serving the Portuguese Air Force since 1953, the 103 Squadron’s primary mission was to provide the conversion and transition training for jet fighters to pilots who had experience with conventional aircrafts. Known as the “Caracóis” and the snail as their mascot, Squadron 103 was nimble in their acrobatic twists and “curls” in the sky.
Partnering with the Portugal Air Force Squadron 103, AVIATOR was honored to create a Special Limited Edition timepiece featuring the Portuguese Air Force’s emblem on the dial, and the emblem of Squadron on the rotating disc of the Chronograph, as well as the legendary Alpha Jet aircraft on the case back.
In 2019, the STAR ALLIANCE member, Aegean Airlines along with its subsidy Olympic Air, carried 15 million passengers worldwide. By the end of 2020, a network of 155 destinations, 31 domestic, and 124 international within 44 countries will be carried out with 65 planes, including the first 6 Airbus A320/321neo aircraft, making this fleet one of the youngest in Europe.
Serving as tribute to a new Airbus A320/321neo aircraft, AVIATOR proudly created a special Limited Edition watch in partnership with Aegean Airlines, for all its crewmembers. Featuring the AEGEAN logo and the frontal picture of a beautiful Airbus 320neo on the dial, this timepiece honors the importance of this AEGEAN Airlines milestone in history.
Jet Scale Modeling competitions, with all its challenges and several thousand working hours invested in building an exact replica of the original aircraft, are broken down to finite details. Similar to a prototype, each model captures the original construction and a wide range of semi-scale models is reflected in the mode airfields.
As the main sponsor of the Swiss Jet Scale Team, AVIATOR not only is a proud supporter of the team’s endeavors, but is honored to outfit each of its members in uniforms and caps during all training and official competitions.
