Valachio Avantiam, its from Canada
After successfully crowd funding the mass production of its first model Pantiam, Canadian watch brand Valachio announces its latest timepiece, the Avantiam. Pantiam was a minimalistic, quartz powered timepiece. Now with the Avantiam, the brand desires to mark its entry into the mechanical watch category.
The Valachio Avantiam boasts an eye catching and minimalistic aesthetics inspired by the Bauhaus design principles. The complex mechanical watch movement ticks behind a clean dial seeks the attention of onlooker through an opening just above the 6’o clock.
The watch is available in two versions. First model features stainless steel case with black dial and the second model comes in a gold plated stainless steel case with white dial.
Available in black or white colour version depends upon the model; the dial structure features two rings. The outer ring has dots for minutes and Arabic numerals in every 5 minutes starting from 5 to 55. The inner ring boasts Arabic numerals for 12, 2, 4, 8 & 10 hours with coloured small circles represent the 1, 3,5,7,9 & 11 hour markers.
The colour of these small circles matches (golden for white dial & blue for black dial) with the second hands which features a circled counter balance. The 6’o clock hour marker has been omitted and you can find a dial opening with the glimpses of movement just above 6’o clock.
For those who desire to admire the detailed view of mechanical beauty, turn the watch and the sapphire crystal caseback will reveal you the Miyota 90S5 automatic mechanical movement that beats inside.
The Valachio Avantiam comes with a handcrafted suede strap or the crocodile-patterned calfskin strap.
