EQVIS Varius

EQVIS is a Swiss watch brand founded by Simon Schmidt in 2011. The EQVIS watches are designed in Germany and manufactured in Switzerland assuring 100% Swiss made quality.

The EQVIS Varius collection offers high-end mechanical wristwatches, which are easily customizable as per customer’s wish. Its patented ring – and strap-changing systems that along with the Varius tool make it easy and fun to transform it in endless ways.

Both rings; the changeling on top and the divider in-between can easily be exchanged for an ever-growing variety of new looks, by simply removing the eight screws on top. The tool to do so is already included in the starter package, as well as two extra changelings and an extra strap.

With the patented Varius strap changing system, the customer can easily switch watch straps, allowing for a wide variety without restrictions. This system eliminates any risk scratching the watch itself or indeed the need for any more than a single pair of hands, making these changes is now an enjoyable stress-free experience.

The Starter Package includes one EQVIS Varius dressed in the black POM divider and stainless steel changeling, mounted on the cognac-colored, hand-stitched, Italian calf leather strap with the nine-piece prong buckle, which can also be used for the waterproof, hand-stitched synthetic Velcro™ strap that is included in the leather travel case.

Further usefulness packed within the leather travel case is the two-piece stainless steel Varius watch tool, a glass container filled with four spare screws and two spare lug-bars, an EQVIS polishing cloth, a second changeling made from solid Bronze as well as a third changeling made from high-tech Forged Carbon.

The Varius watch features a 45mm diameter case with Core made from grade-5 titanium and Exoskeleton made from 316L stainless steel. The front and case-back glasses are made of sapphire crystal.

The watch houses a Swiss Made self-winding mechanical movement (Base caliber: ETA Valgranges A07.111) featuring perlage finished bridges and logo-shaped ruthenium rotor.
