NAVIS, a UK based start-up watch brand established by two watch enthusiasts, announces its first watch – the Aqvantis, a Swiss designed, hand assembled, automatic diver watch crafted with premium materials and high quality parts. The watch is now available for pre-order at discounted price range through the popular online crowd funding website, Kickstarter.
Crafted with surgical grade stainless steel, Aqvantis will be available in four different variations: Two different case colors (black PVD or silver) as well as two dial colors (Black or Blue). The Black PVD case, the Lugano, was inspired by the mysterious color of Lake Lugano in Switzerland. The silver case, called the Geneva, was inspired by Lake Geneva, which is brighter at its bottom.
NAVIS Aqvantis is available with two different movements: Swiss SW200-1 or Japanese NH35A. The case is equipped with 120-click uni-directional bezel, a must have feature for diving watches.
The watch case has 42mm diameter and 14mm thickness. Fitted with a high-grade sapphire crystal, and screwed down crown, the Aqvantis has a water resistance up to 300 m/1000 ft.
The timepieces boasts a double-layer sandwich dial featuring the outer layer with cut-outs gives the numerals and indices distinctive shapes, revealing the luminous layer beneath. The luminous layer features superior visibility in low light conditions. Additionally, Superluminova is embedded on all the three hands.
Every Aqvantis comes with one basic strap and one or two additional straps of the customer’s choice.
