Avian Watch Company

Mark I G E N E S I S (‘GREYFOX’)


Introducing the perfect balance between contemporary and utility. The MKI G E N E S I S is a pilot’s watch inspired by design cues from the Vietnam era, the most innovative time for military helicopter operations, with modern updates to improve wearability, reliability, and curb appeal.

A slightly smaller, more wearable size is a nod to the tasteful and practical designs of the 1960s that placed a premium on the balance of size versus function. At 40mm in diameter, the G E N E S I S is respectable and tactful size that provides comfortable wear for aviation professionals of virtually any wrist size. As a part of our commitment to quality and transparency, the MKI is proudly assembled by hand, tested, and regulated in the United States of America.

The sunburst blue dial with high visibility white indices is a standout feature, making it visible and highly readable in all lighting conditions. The striking blue color of the dial reflects light with incredible variance and adds a touch of elegance to the design. The white indices provide a clear contrast for maximum legibility.

The highest quality sapphire crystal protects the dial, maintains visual clarity, and won’t get scratch blemishes over time like other mineral glass watches.  Provides maximum visibility in all tactical and flight conditions.

Full night luminosity is provided during hours of increased darkness using superior, Swiss made SuperLuminova® fine grains.

The 9015 automatic movement is a 28,800 beat per hour powerhouse with an incredibly smooth sweep. We tune each watch in 6 different positions for precision timekeeping, and powered by the your movement with no battery power required.

You won't need it, but we stand behind the superior quality of our products and offer an industry leading 60-month military warranty on all new watch purchases. That's more than 2x longer than the warranty for a $4,000 'luxury' watch.
