A titanium sportswatch with GMT function. Retro TV-dial style, 39mm wide, 48.5mm lug to lug and 11.5mm thick paired with a comfortable custom-made titanium H-link bracelet. 100m WR.
The Aevig Thyïlea or Thule in modern spelling harks back to the funky 70’s. Television captured the world over but before technology in the mid 90’s gave birth to flatscreen TV’s and then widescreen, the predominant TV shape was kind of a squared oval
This shape formed the basis for the Thyïlea sportswatch. A tonneau case with a deep angled chapterring that draws you in. Full titanium with anti-scratch coating and custom-made H-link bracelet where the middle links echoe the TV-shape.
There will be two versions of the Thyïlea / Thule. Seen here is the GMT with a quickset 24hr GMT hand in a contrast colour. If you don’t need the extra complication you can opt for the basic 3-hander.
The Swiss-made Sellita SW330-2, 25 jewel, 4hz automatic movement has an added GMT complication. This GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) complication moves the 4th hand 24hrs around the dial in 1 hour increments to track a second timezone. A useful feature to see the time on the otherside of the globe or to keep an eye on the hometime when away.
For the timebeing the Thyïlea will be offered in two colours. Midnight blue or dusk brown. When catching the light, the fumé sunburst dial shows a range of colours in dancing rays.
brushed or bead blasted
Case finish you will have a choice of a fine satin brush or a a more subdued bead blasted. The difference is minor but overall effect side by side is quite substantial.
The brushed version has a subtle silver sheen and the blasting creates a matt more grey understated look. One is more dressy, the other the toolwatch look if you will.
Both however are treated with a scratch resistant coating, to keep your timepiece looking good.
