Led by Alberto and Alessandro Morelli, two Italian brothers studying Business at Venice University, the young watch brand PEGASUS WATCHES VENEZIA has been specialised in the production of homage watches fuelled by the founders’ passion in collecting classic, vintage watches.

After the successful crowd funding campaign of their Pegasus Venezia Legionarius timepiece, the brand owners now announce two new models: Mercurio and Nettuno. Both the models will make their debut on Kickstarter on 15 Sep 2016.
The code word for these creations is ‘Aged in Italy’. As the name suggests and for a vintage look, Pegasus Venezia incorporates aging techniques to its parts such as sapphire crystal glass, dial hands& indexes and leather strap. The aging process requires great skill and is made possible by the experience of the best Italian craftsmen.
Technical specifications of both Mercurio and Nettuno models are almost identical. Dressed in a 42mm diameter stainless steel case, all timepieces from these two versions are rated for a water resistance up to 200 meters. The surgical grade 316L stainless steel case featuring brushed finish is fitted with domed sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflection coating.
Each timepiece houses a Japanese Miyota 9015 automatic movement that features date function and sweeping seconds hands. Bearing 24 jewels and beating at the rate of 28,800 this powerhouse delivers power reserve up to 42 hours when fully wound. Famed for reliability, accuracy and budget friendly features, the Calibre Miyota 9015 is a popular self winding movement among new generation mechanical watch brands.
Uni-directional, rotating bezel is an integral part of a diving timepiece and the bezel design differentiates Mercurio and Nettuno models. Mercurio features a bi-colour bezel available either in black/red or blue/red combination having red colour on lower half (15-45) of the bezel. Pegasus Mercurio is also available in two colour versions: Black or White.
Pegasus Nettuno comes with matching dial and bezel and is available in three colour versions: Black, Blue and Green. On both models, the bezel has luminous markings.  Flange of the dial has engravings of brand name. The dial houses luminous, central hands for hour, minute and seconds. Luminous hour markers are being employed for easy time reading during dark conditions. Positioned at 3’o clock, a window reminds you about the date.
Turning back the timepiece, you can admire the self winding movement through a transparent crystal caseback. The Miyota movement beats inside boasts a custom rotor featuring the brand logo. At 3’o clock you can find a custom made, embossed crown with 3 positions for adjusting the time and date functions.
A hand crafted, vintage inspired Italian leather completes the look of this timepiece. Aged and handcrafted by artisans in Italy, these leather straps come in various shades and add further elegance to the vintage look of Pegasus watches.
