DAVOSA Axis Automatic

A stunning member of the deer family, the axis deer is distinguished by its elegant and regular proportions, and a reddish brown coat with characteristic white spots.  Taking inspiration from the lively axis deer, the DAVOSA Axis Automatic is made for use outdoors: with scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a robust satined and polished or black-plated stainless steel case, water resistance of 5 ATM and a tried and tested SW200 Swiss automatic movement.
A quick glance suffices to take in the clearly readable dial – no matter the weather conditions, by day and at night. With its 42 mm diameter, the case has enough space for large, striking yet simple figures and indices, as well as self-confident hands.

A coating of Super-LumiNova or vintage, ‘old radium’ Super-LumiNova on the figures and hands ensures easy orientation, even at night. And as an extra design detail, the seconds hand and central indices are highlighted in red or orange.
One special feature of the DAVOSA Axis Automatic comes into its own when the temperature drops. Note that icy temperatures could possibly harm this wristwatch – the quality movement is more than a match for them. No, it is the fact that the leather strap runs right under the case, covering its bottom surface completely. So cold metal will not touch your skin, just the pleasantly soft, warm leather strap with its visible white seams and stainless steel studs, recalling the distinctive coat markings of the axis deer.
That the Axis Automatic is a true DAVOSA is clear from the high-quality craftsmanship, the logo on the dial and the fluted crown bearing the distinctive DAVOSA star. The watch retails at 698 € for the stainless steel version and 728 € for the black PVD-plated version.
