New: ACHTUNG Aviatorē collection

We featured the ACHTUNG Classic Yellow watch last month in our “Week on the Wrist” feature and it certainly attracted some comments on social media! For their second series of watches, the ACHTUNG Aviatorē, the company have dialled back the garish colours somewhat but retained the same Marmite case design.

New: ACHTUNG Aviatorē collection

ACHTUNG say they are bringing some fun to the world of watch collecting with the Aviatorē
collectin of timepieces. Whatever you think of the design, all can agree that wearing something like this on your wrist is making a statement, and brands like SevenFriday have carved out a niche market for more unusual watches.

The specs are familiar to followers of Kickstarter watches: a 316L Stainless steel case, sapphire crystal and 50m water resistance are the minimum standards for a “serious” watch, and all are present. The strap is calf leather, and hopefully feels better than that on the original series of watches, which were a little disappointing. The company say the new watch straps have gathered layers of leather to provide a soft cushion, and the strap comes with a quick-release spring bar – so you can change the strap in seconds – if you can find another one to fit!
