Gavox Aurora Reviews

I always like to see the reaction of reviewers regarding my watches and especially the Gavox Aurora.  Often it is being told it is probably too complex and difficult to catch and after 15 minutes they get the “A Ha!” moment. “his watch is amazing and intuitive”.  The gavox Aurora could be the missing link between classical watch and Smartwatches.  It is Smart for sure ;-)

FIRST LOOK AT THE GAVOX AVIDIVER (Wornandwound)

February 26th, 2016, Wornandwound ; Release article.  http://wornandwound.com/2016/02/26/first-look-at-the-gavox-avidiver/

Last October at Wind-Up: NYC, I got a sneak peek at a prototype watch by Gavox that was very exciting. As you might recall, last time we discussed Gavox, who are a small brand with fairly bold ambitions, they had redefined the quartz pilot with their Aurora watch. One of the first watches to use a Soprod Mecatronic movement, it took an analog aviator design and gave it the functionality of a digital watch with an impressive array of complications. Their newest watch continues their pursuit of original variations on the pilot with a mechanical concept that is meant to excel above and below land; the Avidiver.

At a glance, the Avidiver appears to be a dual crown aviator watch, presumably with an internal bezel. However, the second crown doesn’t control the bezel, but rather the bright orange triangle seen at 12. By positioning the triangle at various points across the dial, one can set a second time zone (such as with a Zulu bezel), or track their elapsed time (as with a typical dive bezel). Though a simple concept it’s one with a lot of utility, and a novel approach in the current market.

DSC05090

Continuing the aviation-diver theme, the dial is sandwich-style speaking to dive watches, but with a distinct aviator layout. At 3, 6 and 9 are massive cutout numerals with a retro, open typeface. The other hours are wide tapering rectangles, also cut through, adding to the overall visibility and legibility of the design. At 12 is a v-cutout, which cleverly sits around the floating orange triangle above, creating one bold marker. Between the hour marks are then thin lines for the individual minutes/seconds. The layer below the main surface then features Super Luminova for good nighttime/low light visibility.

Around the dial is a chapter ring with an index of bold numerals for minutes/seconds. The rotating triangle sits below the ring, in a gap. From an angle, you can actually see that the triangle is part of a ring, all in bright orange, adding a sliver of orange is visible all around. The dials are finished with Roman sword hour and minute hands with lume filling. The seconds hand is a thin stick in black with an orange tip and an interesting winged-V counterweight. The watch is available with white, black or blue dials. The white is surprisingly cool looking, with orange outlined hands instead of white, for a fun twist.

3AVD-115.0

The case is a beefy 43mm with 22mm lugs and a depth rating of 20 ATM. The design speaks a bit more to pilots than divers, but the addition of dual crowns gives it a touch of that super-compressor feel. Each dial color is available with either brushed steel or PVD cases, for classic or tactical look. The black and white dials are both quite striking with the PVD option, which sets off the subtle orange highlight of the bezel-triangle.

All in all, the Gavox Avidiver is a cool new offering from the brand that should have both pilot and dive watch enthusiasts interested. By creating a hybrid of the two, while using a novel bezel design, Gavox has further demonstrated that they aren’t another cookie-cutter brand, but rather one with interesting ideas. What they achieved with the Avidiver is seemingly a very functional sport watch that should be great for a variety of adventures. The Avidiver is currently available for preorder at 20% off of retail, coming in at about $500 in steel at $550 in PVD. Powered by the Miyota 9015, this is a very fair price.

Windup (aftermath of the NYC Watch fair)

2015-10-12_01-25-43

What did I think about the event.

Some time ago, I participated to the First “Microbrand Watch fair” Organized by Wornandwound (WindUp). This was the first experience I had to bring watches and meet my client face to face in New York City. The Experience was a real added value for me and my Gavox Brand.

I first need to tell you that I not only like making watches, but i love taking time with my customers and give them the best service I can.  I still Check, Prepare, Mount bracelets and straps, Pack and Ship, Write a personal message to each and any customer because I CARE. This is a way to get in contact with you and share our vision of watches and give feedback on what was good or bad about the watches purchased.

So for the Windup event I was so happy to explain and share idea and thoughts about watches. Meet people that new Gavox and other interested in the design and creation i propose. Of course I liked seeing reactions from some of you who where “Flabbergasted” when seeing what my Gavox Aurora could do.

 

I remember

In particular i remember the time a person came back and forth to my stand and requesting to see and tough the Gavox Aurora. After some time he said to me “I told myself that never again I would buy a Quartz Watch and there I am asking you to purchase this Gavox Aurora” He told me that he fell for the Aurora as he saw all the work and thought being put in this watch and how everything falls in place.

An other time someone asked me early afternoon “I want to get you this Gavox Legacy, Could you please keep it for me and I’ll come back with some money” . This particular one was the last i had left and I totally trusted this fellow.  The end of the fair was there, I started packing my watches and said well he will not be back.  After halfway in the packing my client  present himself to the guard forcing them to ask for me. And there my new client “friend” came and thanked for keeping his watch. And when the deal was done, I received a god Hug and this message “You don’t know how happy I am, Thanks you so much”.

Gavox Aurora watches

The Gavox Aurora in Father Christmas Land: Lapland

The Gavox Aurora went to meet the Aurora Borealis this winter.  I Created this watch to be a one of a kind Wristwatch with a few innovations of my own. Due to the research i put in this watch and of the fact that it is a watch made for pilots and astronauts, I named this watch Aurora. Also the Luminescent Dial and Hands remind the colors that can be created by these lights. (Wikipedia : An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude regions)

When my good friend, Stephan from www.mynoise.net decided to go to lapland with his son end of December 2015, I knew he would have the possibility to encounter Northern Light (Aurora Borealis).

I challenged Stephan to take a picture of his Gavox Aurora showing both the watch and the Sky with a Aurora. You need to know that on that day the sky was cloudless, the temperature was freezing -14°F (-26°C ).  Due to this cold, his Iphone and the Autofocus of his SLR camera Stopped working. The picture above needed a lot of trial and error to make sure the focus was right and this is very dim light.  This shot needed a pause of 8 Second to get enough light.

Stephan told me that the cold was so intense that while making sure the shot was right, his finger appeared to be “Frozen”,  “I can’t move my finger anymore”. After some time under fresh water the feeling came back.

Merry Christmas 2015 to all of you from the country of Father Christmas.

Here Stephane’s Son is taking care of his sledge Half Wolf  – Half Husky dog. You need to know that these half breed dogs makes them tough for the weather condition and also easier to train.
