Since the establishment of the Swiss Athens Watch, it has been committed to pursuing a unique style. In order to continue this brand’s identity, Athens Watch has specially launched an original nautical astronomical watch series for its store, limited to 99 pieces worldwide.
The original Nautical Observatory watch series was specifically designed for durability, with a 45 mm black stainless steel ‘asphalt’ coated case. This high-tech coating is made of carbon without a fixed shape, which strengthens the hardness of the case, effectively prevents scratches, and ensures durability. At the same time, this ‘asphalt’ coating can also avoid allergic reactions caused by wearing metal. In addition to the eye-catching pure black coating design, the easy-to-wind red rubber crown and the luminous display for night reading, it also shows the intimate details, which is an excellent choice for both appearance and practicality.
The original Nautical Observatory watch series is equipped with the UN-118 self-winding movement independently designed and developed by the original factory. This movement is a symbol of the revolutionary development of the Athenian watch. From the DiamonSil anchor escapement, which combines diamond and silicon to the movement, to its own balance wheel and patented hairspring, it all reflects the innovation of UN-118.
The launch of the original nautical astronomical watch series is a tribute to the more than one hundred years of sailing history of the Athenian watch, and it is also an outlook for the pioneering and innovative and endless sailing of the Athen watch. Designed for the Athens watch boutique, this watch series will further highlight the insistence of the Athens watch brand-this precious and respected value.
