Gavox squadron watch for Romanian Air Force

 A story of success in wonderful Romania.

Early this year I was contacted by a Romania F16 Pilot “Miklas” to create a Watch for their 1st F16 Fighting Squadron.

The 53rd Squadron pilots have been trained in Portugal for some time as the Romanian government decided to purchase Portugese F16 to replace the Mig 21 for they fleet.

Thanks to Jo.D. a Belgian F16 Pilot from the 350th Sqn who was in portugal at the time,  Miklas discovered that in Belgium, Gavox ,  a small Company was creating Pilot Tool Watches and even managed Limited series of Personalized watches. Gavox Already produced More that 14 different Limited Serie Watches for Specific Squadrons and Teams.

Watch Review: Gavox Aurora By Timetoblogwatches.com

When Stephen from Time2blogwatches asked me to review my aurora, I new he would find something special with this watch. Stephen does some great reviews out there and full of nice pictures and articles.

Mike

In his own words;

I am very excited about this review because it is the first mecatronic movement watch that I am reviewing. The Aurora has several different motors that work in unison to create a very unique and special watch. Since this is a unique and special watch review I am going to approach it very differently, by explaining the functions first then I will dissect the watch from a physical standpoint.

So let’s take a look at each of the Aurora’s cool and unique functions shall we?

check the article on his website : https://timetoblogwatches.com/2016/03/11/watch-review-gavox-aurora/


image38 image41 image42 image56 image82 image92Conclusion:

The Gavox Aurora is a very unique and special watch. Housing a very cool Mecatronic movement that handles all of the Aurora’s many different functions with ease. The classic pilot/aviation themed dial is simply gorgeous, with perfect symmetry, lovely texture and great lume. You get a extremely unique watch packed full of great functions, for well under $1,000 USD. It’s pretty impressive the amount of watch you get for your dollar.

The Aurora is very comfortable on the wrist and is quite rugged able to handle a lot of outdoor activities. I know that Michael posted pics of the Aurora in temperatures well below 0 and while the camera failed under the harsh conditions, the Aurora never faultered. That definitely gets some bonus points in my book.

I would definitely wear this watch myself and I would highly recommend it to someone who is looking for a pilot/aviation themed watch but looking for something a bit different. You will not be disappointed with the Gavox Aurora it’s a real masterpiece both in function and in design. The dial is a work of art in its self. I am genuinely shocked by its water resistance, shocked in a good way.

If there is anything that I would change on the Aurora if given the choice? Not really, everything has been well thought out for a long time when the Aurora was designed. In an updated version I would like to see a screw down crown and pushers to increase the water resistance. I understand that this would slow the ease of function, but it’s just my personal opinion.

I want to personally thank Michael for allowing me to conduct my review on the Aurora and allowing me to take my time to be thorough with it. I fell in love with this watch for sure. It photographs with such ease and finesse. Thank you Michael!

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 ;-)
