Ever since their presentation in 2013 we’ve been following Pinion intently. We played two or three long time audits of the Pinion Pure and Pinion Axis watches and we lauded them for the undeniable degree of detail and quality given to the dial, hands and packaging. Presently, we acquaint with you the Pinion Atom. A Pinion watch with an agreeable sticker price, without surrendering the general completion and quality we applauded them for in the past.
You can’t have missed the way that BaselWorld this year was about reasonable watches. “Affordable luxury” as certain brands rather put it. SIHH in Geneva was an alternate story obviously, as they focus on ‘haute horlogerie’ at any rate, except for brands like Baume & Mercier. In any case, we saw that a few brands concocted value adjustments, new less expensive models, some dependent on existing models however stripped-down to have the option to put a more amiable sticker price on it. The hours of the unending yearly cost increments are ideally over to be straightforward, it didn’t bode well any longer eventually. Brands like Seiko, Oris and Sinn for instance, have exploited over the interest for watches with a lower sticker price but have something fascinating to bring to the table. The interest in microbrands and reasonable new comers as a rule expanded a considerable amount among lovers, which is an unmistakable sign to the set up brands. The inquiry is whether they will get this signal.
Anyway, we can add another fascinating and reasonable watch to the rundown. The Pinion Atom. As per a Pinion agent, they did everything to keep the quality and finish of the case, dial, hands, crown and tie comparable to the past Pinion models. The main distinction is in the utilization of the movement. Where different assortments utilized another old stock Valjoux 7734 and manual-winding Unitas 6498 with a Glucydur balance, the Pinion Atom depends on a Miyota type 9015 movement.
This way, Pinion can hold the value down to 790 GBP (~ 935 Euro) for their Atom watch. For this kind of cash, a Seiko Presage or Sinn 104 will be the main competitors from the previously mentioned brands. Oris has no suggestion in this cost range.
Of course, we presently can’t seem to see the watch in the substance, yet dependent on the plan and the past Pinion models we have an uplifting attitude toward the Pinion Atom.
The Pinion Atom has a 42mm measurement, globule impacted treated steel case, sapphire raised gem and comes on a hand-made 22mm cowhide tie. It has a water obstruction of 100 meters. The huge dial will have Arabic numerals, a focused Clous-de-Paris finish and a date gap at 6 o’clock. All fabricated, gathered and tried in England and comes with a cowhide and material watch roll and two-year warranty.
Expected conveyance in July 2017 yet prepared for requesting now. The initial 25 orders can pick their chronic number (001-025). At the point when it is out, we will try to get one for a review.
