Avidiver

A watch for Pilots and Divers.

After the Gavox Aurora, here’s the Avidiver, a mechanical  watch that is meant to excel above (Higher) and below land (Deeper).

The Avidiver carry a novelty in its unique Bezel:

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.

With its Sandwich dial we managed to increase the Luminescent layer (Bottom Layer)  with thick Swiss Superluminova paint.

The last cool detail is the strap. Rather than typical leather, nylon or steel, Gavox went with a custom molded silicon. This allows for the strap to perfectly fit the lugs, for a sleek integrated look. The silicon is also very corrosion resistant, making it a preferred choice for dive straps, allowing the watch to seamlessly transition from air to land to sea. The strap is available in black, blue or orange, to best pair with the dial/case of your choosing. The blue seems to look best on blue with either case, while the black and white dials take to the orange and black straps well. The former providing a very sporty, high visibility aesthetic, and the other a more classic and subdued one.
