Review from Watchreport.com. From Michael Wolfe
I am constantly on the hunt for great looking military style watches, especially with a Sinn watch brand type appearance to them. The Gavox Squadron really delivers this at a much more affordable cost. Some background information direct from Gavox Watches indicates the company was registered in 2011 by the grandson of one of the legendary “Flying Tigers”. Gavox strives to produce timing instruments inspired by exploration of the skies. The founder, as an engineer and a pilot, wanted to produce watches that could be used by individuals in the field, providing multiple functions such as: alarms, chronographs, military time, perpetual calendars and multiple time zones.
The Squadron was specifically designed for the Belgian Air Force with 65 units designed and designated for two separate squadrons of their Air Force. However, the civilian population didn’t get left out as another 500 were produced for the rest of us. As I mentioned earlier, the Squadron model has some strong resemblances to Sinn watch brand productions, specifically the 103 model, but at a much more affordable cost starting at $396 USD for the stainless model compared to watches nearing $2000 USD. A PVD model is also available at $430 USD. Some of the basic specifications of the Squadron are:
Movement: Ronda 5130.D
Dial: Matte Black
Water Resistance: 10bar
Case Diameter: 41mm
Warranty: 2 years
