Avian Watch Company
Mark I G E N E S I S
The MKI G E N E S I S is a true field/dress watch inspired by design cues from the Vietnam era, an important span of time in the daring history of military helicopter operations. This watch honors the courageous efforts of those Aviation pioneers that were the forerunners of modern aerial combat tactics.
The dual-time GMT edition tracks two timezones simultaneously and is available in several distinct finishes. For the first time, we're offering a tactically inspired bead blasted finish option for a new watch. The automatic edition is available in a silver edition and sports a limited edition military tan dial with full illumination.
The watch is just 40mm in diameter, a respectable and tactful size that provides comfortable wear for male and female professionals alike. 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.
Avian Watch Company timepieces are never a compromise. Avoid the collector's pieces, you deserve a real watch that is truly Built to be Worn™.
SCRATCH RESISTANT CRYSTAL
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 ILLUMINATION
Full night luminosity is provided during hours of increased darkness using superior, Swiss made SuperLuminova® fine grains.
DUAL TIMEZONE TRACKING
The GMT edition is powered by the tried and true Ronda AG 515.24H GMT movement used in our MKIII collection. This Swiss movement guarantees precision time keeping and the tracking of two time zones simultaneously.
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.
INDUSTRY LEADING WARRANTY
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.
