42mm Automatic watches
The Axis II automatic watch collection is the follow-up to Pinion’s debut sell-out AXIS watch.
The original AXIS trio of automatic watches were released when the company launched in November 2013, with headline model being a 42 mm bronze cased watch with distinctive green dial, making it was the first bronze watch to be built in England by a modern company.
AXIS II automatic watches are presented in the same size and range of case materials as its predecessor; steel, bronze, and black DLC cases, however it incorporates a number of distinctive aesthetics that reference PINION’s own subsequent released of British watches most notably with a revised case design and dial finishes.
In a new move, all watches are now available in two specifications which allow customers to choose between an engraved and individually numbered solid steel back or an exhibition sapphire crystal case-back that displays a customised ‘hunter green’ PINION winding rotor and decorated automatic Swiss movement (ETA 2824-2).
The stepped ‘Superdome’ bezel, a popular feature of PINION’s acclaimed limited edition Revival 1969 chronograph watch now appears on the AXIS II. And, referencing its PURE hand-wound sibling, AXIS II features revised typography and a polished finish on the dial along with milled, polished and applied silver indexes that are filled with Super Luminova.
For the Axis II black, the DLC treatment is now applied on a brushed stainless steel case. For these automatic watches, the finishing as well as watchmaking and testing is undertaken in England.
