Also, your effort to ship the parcel to Kazakhstan, I want to say one more thank you!
And last, but not least: your short message which was written by hand in the box. It’s so amazing to see in our digital world such attention…
I will share my impressions in a week or two. Also, I’ll plan to make few photos and share it with you.
Thank you so much!
P.S. The time was set according to our local. Attention to details is fantastic!
P.S.S. I liked your short letter by hand.
P.S.S.S. I have a plan to write a review to your watches on popular Russian speaking resource watch.ru if you don’t mind.
I’ve always been a 3 hander watch person. Due to the cost of servicing watches with complication, i rarely venture out of the day / date function. Until recently i acquired a solar chrono panda. I discovered the beauty of watches with complications like sub dials and all.
Shortly after, i chance upon Gavox. A Belgian brand created by Michael Happe. Founded in 2011, they began making watches for the Air Force in 2014. You can find our more about the brand https://gavox.com/about/
After reading reviews and spending hours scruntising their collection. The logical stars called out to me. The execution of the dial was done harmoniously, so much so that it did not felt congested every when both the hour and minute hands in the lower half of the dial. A lot of thought must have gone into the design and treatment to make every thing stand out but not looking cluttered.
For example, the blue hands looks black at certain angle. The proportion of the sub dials and slight distortion to the sec dial is in symmetry to the whole look. Even the date window with a border looks in place at 6’o clock. The selection of font for the roman indexes appropriately defines the naval feel of the watch. I want to especially highlight the design of the 24hr / day and night sub dial. This is by far the best part of the dial for me. There is a saying “Less is more” In this instances, I think the design managed to put in more but makes it look less clutter. The watch cannot be view on its part alone, for the sum of it makes the whole watch stands out. It is always joy to look at the time and photograph this unique timepiece.
Having said so much about the dial, the polished see thru case back is equally well designed. Custom rotor on a Miyota 8219, even the font is carefully engraved to replicate the naval feel.
The position of its crown at a rather awkward 2 o’clock position may seems out of place at first. After handing the watch for a while, I realised that it is actually a joy to use it ergonomically. Much better that a crown at 4 o’clock.
The overall weight distribution on leather strap is perfect. Some might find the slightly longer lugs a problem but it sits nicely on my 6.75” flat wrist with no overhang. Fits comfortably under the cuff of my shirt but also pairs well with my dress down days. The watch works well with most straps. It is a watch for all occasion, it has been a few conversation starter even if non watch lovers.
The package came thru within 10 days of clearing payment, packed in a good quality travel roll, well protected inside a paper box. The package includes an alligator strap, a calf leather strap, papers and a sticker. I would personally like to have a travel case instead of watch roll. As travel case offers more protection and separated storage spaces for tools, straps and sometime another watch.
