Avian Watch Company
Mark I G E N E S I S (‘DARKHORSE’)
The original MKI G E N E S I S is a utility watch inspired by design cues from the Vietnam era, an important time in the history of military helicopter operations. This original watch was built to honor the Aviation pioneers that were the forerunners of modern aerial combat tactics.
The G E N E S I S is an automatic watch that measures 40mm in diameter, a respectable and tactful size that provides comfortable wear for aviation professionals of all wrist sizes. The high contrast dial features bright orange index markers for maximum visibility and legibility. The bead blasted finish and signed NATO strap make it perfectly suited for both air and field work, and the precision regulated automated movement means that your G E N E S I S is powered by your wrist movement and never, ever needs a battery.
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 carefully applied, matte-textured PVD black coating is treated with a bead blasting process during finishing. This provides maximum durability and protection against the elements in all field conditions and a level of scratch resistance that is superior to untreated stainless steel.
FULL NIGHT ILLUMINATION
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.
