Sometimes, with all the complications, elaborate designs and ways to display time, it is refreshing to see a watch that brings everything back to the essence of it all.
That watch is the Pinion Pure. Available in marine grade bronze, the Pure is water resistant to 100 metres and is powered by a Swiss made handwound movement.
The dial is presented in polished black, with differing levels to provide subtle visual contrasts. The applied ‘professional’ radium coloured baton indexes are individually milled, polished, then filled with our own SuperLuminova mix that provides a dramatic look, but with excellent visual clarity.
The crown, featuring Pinion’s signature gearwheel icon is a fitting embellishment to the wonderful movement within; a decorated handwound Unitas 6498.
Originally developed as a pocket watch calibre in the 1950s this dependable, robust Swiss movement provides accurate timekeeping and a power reserve of 45 hours. The requirement to wind the timepiece on a regular basis will allow the owner to form a connection with the watch and to discover the delight of the slower tick-tick sound that you only really get with handwound movements such as the 6498.
With full assembly of the watch undertaken in England, as a finishing touch the Pure will be presented in a handcrafted solid wooden box finished in a beautiful high gloss piano black with polished chrome-plated hardware and soft blue inner lining.
With purity of purpose on the dial, and behind it, Pinion Pure draws inspiration from professional instruments of the past and reinvents it for the wrist now.
