The Aevig Thor, a modern sized dress-watch with vintage flavour.
At 40mm wide by 48mm long and 11m thick excluding the box sapphire on top it is slim enough to slip under a shirtcuff yet stand out discreetly. Bold and yet refined.
A custom handset and tactile crown sets the Thor apart from your typical dress-watch. Standard dauphine hands or pencilset could not contain as much lume or be this easy to read in any situation. The double fluted crown assures good grip to wind and set the manualwind movement inside.
A first for Aevig is the see-through caseback to show off the detailed Miyota 8N33 manualwind movement. Hand winding a watch satisfies the connection to the marvel a mechanical watch is. About 40 turns winds up the movement completely for no less than 40 hours p0werreserve. Do not overwind for this movement does not have a slip like automatic winding movements do.
The strap that accompanies the Thor is of premium calf leather, custom made in Germany. 20 to18mm almost straight cut with a slant tail for a bolder look to fit the theme. The strap is perforated at the back for added ventilation and comfort. Attention to detail and finish is carried out throughout even to the custom buckle with engraved logo and solid prong. Additional two piece premium Perlon strap also made in Germany included.
