Here’s some images of the new Axis II dials.
They are similar in structure to the existing Axis dials, but contain some subtle enhancements:
- The dials now contain second markers, something Pinion deliberately removed as part of the first collection, but are essential for timekeeping given the central sweeping seconds hand.
- The original dials were just ‘printed’, where as the new ones feature milled and polished metal batons to provide extra detail and depth. Pinion has designed these batons to feature a thicker edge of metal, which is then filled with SuperLuminova.
- The colouring and finish on each dial is now different from the originals: The green dial, which will be used for the Axis Bronze is still satin in texture, but features othe new Pinion deep green colour. Also, this colour is used for the new new Axis II decorated rotors. On the existing models, the black dial was satin, meaning it would sometimes appear grey in colour, this time – these have been polished and feature a very subtle vertical brushed finish, this makes the black appear darker which will be perfect for the Axis II Black DLC and Steel models.
