AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT

When deciding on the movement for this timepiece, we wanted something already tried and tested for its accuracy, dependability and longevity. The Miyota 8215 is just that plus more. The Miyota company was founded in 1918 and is one of the largest producers of movements and is a part of the Citizen group. The calibre 8215 is often compared to its Swiss counterpart, which is the equivalent to the ETA 2824-2. Although the movement   has a date wheel function, we have decided not to include a date window on our dial for a clean minimalist look. We will also have a stretch goal which will open the option to have a Miyota 9015 movement.

316L STEEL CASE

For the watchcase, we decided surgical grade 316L stainless steel was the best option due to its strength and extreme corrosion resistance. The 40mm watchcase has been tested for resistance up to 10ATM water resistance allowing you to wear it in any condition whether rain, snow or anything in between. It also features a screw down crown for additional underwater security and prevents the crown being accidentally caught. The case has a nice brushed finish, with the shoulders of the lugs being polished to give it a nice contrast. We decided to opt for the 40mm case dimension, as this is a classic size and perfect for both business and casual attire.

GLASS

The glass protecting the dial is made of sapphire crystal that has one layer of anti-reflective (AR) coating on the inside of the glass. We decided not to have an external layer of AR coating due to its vulnerability to scratches, which beats the whole purpose of having a sapphire crystal in the first place. The sapphire crystal case-back features an open exhibition case, allowing you to see the heart of the movement in all its glory. The first 150 backers will receive their Avanaut with a unique serial number engraved on the caseback.

DESIGN

We spent more than a year of Sophisticated designing and rigorous testing to create a modern, exclusive and minimal concept, quintessential to our brand. Quality and simplicity will always be the emphasis. The design of the Avanaut is inspired by nautics and maritime and is Designed in house completely from the ground up, our aim is to create a timepiece that is functional and weathered for every element.
