Belgium based watch brand GAVOX unveil its first automatic watch collection –Legacy, which takes us on a journey to the early 18th century when the founder’s ancestor, a marine officer of the Dutch marine fleet, sailed the oceans to explore the new world.
Inspired by marine time instruments, the new GAVOX Legacy collection is fitted with a sapphire crystal, a silvery dial with roman numerals and blue heated hands. The Legacy houses a sturdy automatic movement with custom date ring and rotor.
The collection is available in 4 different models
Ref. 346.5, with polished steel case, silver dial with small second register and date window. Price: 299 Euros
Ref. 346.1, with black PVD-coated steel case, black dial with small second register and date window. Price: 320 Euros
Ref. 358.5, with polished steel case, silver dial with small second register, day/night counter (Symbols) and date window. Price: 329 Euros
Ref. 358.9, with polished steel case, silver dial with small second register, day/night counter (Golden stars) and date window. Price: 329 Euros
Two Legacy models feature a 24 hours display. It helps to differentiate between AM and PM 12 hours. The main difference between these 2 models lies in the design of the display. One uses “Golden stars” (Ref 358.9), the other one uses “Symbols” (Ref 358.5).
The Legacy collection comes in 4 models and uses 2 different mechanisms
The Legacy Ref. 346.1 and 346.5 use a custom version of the calibre 8218 from Miyota (Citizen Holdings). It features hours and minutes, a small register at 4 o’clock showing seconds and a window at 6 o’clock showing the date.

An additional register located at 8 o’clock displays the main time in a 24 hour format.
