This bold stainless steel bodied watch features a matt blue face with outer one way ceramic rotating bezel in a polished matching iridescent blue and contrasted by the bold white hour marking batons and numbers, the crown is secured and sealed when not in use and the knurled edge of the bezel is carefully designed to offer excellent grip under water or in turbulence even while wearing diving or flying gloves.
The bold hands with Avionic-luma technology allows easy reading within the diving or cockpit environment and during extremely low light.
The body of the watch is perfectly complemented with a hand crafted bracelet in brushed and polished stainless steel which is secured by a push-button deployment clasp with the iconic Avionic engraved detailing. The bracelet extension will allow the watch to be easily worn on top of a diving or flight suit if required.
The Swiss made movement of the Avionic Ascent is an automatic self winding twenty-five jewel movement. It has a healthy 38-hour power reserve and runs at 28,800 bph. This movement is the epitome of a workhorse offering not only outstanding reliability, but also considerable durability found in watches at many times this price point.
To address the needs of professional divers, The Avionic Ascent has an integrated helium escape valve, which allows the watch to “decompress” with the diver after deep saturation dives. During decompression, the gases inside the watch are unable to escape from the waterproof case quickly enough, creating a pressure differential that could force the sapphire crystal out of the watch case. Avionic artisans created a gas escape valve mechanism with a fine spring which opens when the difference in pressure between the inside and outside of the watch reaches 3 to 5 bars, allowing the gases to escape, thereby protecting the watch to 500 meters.
