The moVas Empire 1 is the first watch in the brand that pushes away from the vintage military/ dive watch designs and further in the direction of technical construction and performance. The case is made from Aeronautical Grade Titanium in an Ultra Thin (7.8mm) tri-part construction, brushed with polished edges top and bottom plate, shot peened midcase and with a suspended, dampened and shock protected exo-skeleton titanium brace which is again shot peened in black DLC.
The design of the watch has been heavily influenced by the HSCB building in Hong Kong by Normal Foster in the use of bracing, multi-part construction and bolts.
The watch houses the new Cal 2661 which is the thinnest movement we have used (3.9mm), and is made even thinner with the removal of the seconds hand pinion. A skeletonised date disc is used to reduce the weight of the movement further while the rotor is deep blasted, etched, CNCed with gold filled lettering and black PVD coating.
A new proprietary polished tri-tip torque screw is introduced on the Empire to allow for anti-slip installation of the 8 bolts/ tube construction that secure the entire assembly. A black zirconium screw down crown that is blasted and polished is used to give contrast to the watch and creates a crown that will not chip or fade with use.
The technical and high performance of the watch materials and construction make the Empire 1 suitable to formal affairs, office/ work, functions, weddings and events, further solidifying it as our everyday modern technical watch model. It is equipped with our proprietary SUPER BUCKLE titanium deployant buckle with a genuine high grade lizard strap in black for a more formal use and an anti-static and waterproof nitrite rubber double sided strap for more sporting/ robust purposes.
A limited production of 50pc of this design has been made and each watch is numbered on the reverse etched caseback.
