Please note that this is a pre-order. The watches are already being produced and will be delivered in November 2019.
The Ianos Avyssos IA01 features a warm gold brown dial reminiscent of the natural colour of sponges and bronze from which the Antikythera Mechanism was made of.
The bold case design offers unparalleled comfort while combining a classical looking design with a modern twist.
Finally, the superluminova sandwich dial, hands and small seconds mechanism ensure that you will never be left in the dark even in the deepest parts of the Abyss.
Each Ianos Avyssos IA01 is delivered with a brown Italian leather strap cured coating ensuring water usability and great aging as well as a brown Bonetto Cinturini rubber NATO strap.
The Avyssos dial is essentially a compact history lesson focusing on two topics. Greek sponge diving history and the Antikythera mechanism found by these divers.
The small seconds hand has been replaced with a meaningful luminous rotating propeller in a cage structure replicating the main gear of the Antikythera mechanism found by Greek sponge divers in 1900, showing you that your watch is working, while the hour markers are shaped like the kampanelopetra stone used by the “naked” sponge divers to pull them to the seabed in search of sponges.
The rough texture of the dial only serves to accent the rugged nature of the sponge diver profession and the ancient inspiration of the watch.
The Avyssos is not another diver watch.
Each component and design element has been re-thought and re-designed to serve a specific purpose and function.
The bezel features an angular design representing the watch’s utilitarian nature while the case itself has a flowing curvature running from lug to lug which hugs your wrist and provides a slim profile for a 44mm watch.
But the ingenuity does not stop there. The Avyssos case back features a deep strap channel allowing a one piece strap or NATO strap to pass through it, sitting flush with the case, thus affording maximum comfort with minimum height.
