The Pinion Axis II bronze is an effortless, uncomplicated bronze watch, designed to be highly legible and accurate using a Swiss made movement and housed in a solid bronzed alloy structural case making it an extremely robust and dependable timepiece.
The bronze watch, which is designed in England is influenced by the sharp looks of early 20th century military timepieces and instruments. The pure function of timekeeping with the Axis II is straightforward due to the highly legible dial and coated sapphire crystal allowing clear vision of the time and date from all angles and lighting conditions.
Housed in an versatile 42mm marine grade bronze watch case which is made from a single solid block of bronze and water resistant to 100 metres, the Axis II is extremely robust. This structural integrity also employs shock resistance for the movement, making it perfect for multipurpose wear.
At the heart of the Axis II bronze watch is a highly dependable Swiss made automatic movement (ETA 2824-2) which is renowned for it’s reliability and accuracy having been used by fine watchmakers worldwide for many years. With 8 beats per second (28,800 per hour) the movement allows for high accuracy and when fully wound has a power reserve of 40 hours. The power is retained by wearing the watch, as subtle wrist movements power a winding rotor to keep the watch fully wound.

“Ever since the start of Pinion in 2013, bronze cased watches have featured heavily in our collections and I consider this metal to be very much part of what makes up the ‘Pinion DNA’.
Five years later, our Axis II bronze watches have evolved into two distinct models. Whilst these watches are more elaborate than our original, both follow the Pinion design code with honour.”
