Pinion Axis II – range

The latest newsletter from Pinion, that arrived this morning, announced that the Axis II range now consists of a choice of three cases, Steel, Bronze and Black DLC. Each being available either with a closed or exhibition back. One interesting “Pinion Fact”  is that emerged from reading about these watches was that the Bronze Axis was the first bronze watch from a modern British company.

I really looking forward to seeing this new range soon.

New Pinion Axis Bronze

I cannot believe I have not posted for 12 days! Sorry. I am also surprised that I have not mentioned the latest news from Pinion, their new Axis Bronze.

This latest bronze model is a fascinating alternative to the existing steel version.I personally think bronze is a great material for a watch given how the patina can develop over time.

The great appearance of this watch is not limited to the front, have a look at the caseback and the special green rotor.

Well done Piers !
