Azimuth Mecha-1 Gauge BMF GM-1PVD Swiss Automatic Limited Edition Rare Seconds
We take trades against any of our watches!!! We also buy watch packages!!
Defying conventions and setting new standards, the Mecha-1 Gauge BMF combines contemporary styling with fine Swiss craftsmanship. Taking its design cues from the iconic Porsche 911 of the 1980s, the sub-counters takes the shape of the car’s dashboard, presenting a fine work of art bundled in a wrist-sized package.
The Porsche 911 has been highly contested throughout the decade as a car model that went against all mechanical rules – its engine is located at the rear, an anomaly in the car-making industry.
But it is this very anomaly that resounded with Azimuth, a champion for all things that are unconventional. The Mecha 1 gauge BMF is thus birthed as a tribute to this very car model that went beyond every imaginable constraint to emerge as one of the most outstanding cars of the decade.
Powering the watch is a modified Swiss EtA 2824 self-winding movement. This caliber comprises 25-jewels and oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibration per hour (4Hz).
Check this crazy looking thing out! Azimuth Watch Mecha-1 (ref: GM-1PVD) with black PVD case. Reading the time on this bad boy isn’t as intimidating as it appears. The left side of the dial (the case is the dial!) features a retrograde minute display. Moving over to the left from top to bottom you will find hours, seconds, 24 hour time. Most of the Mecha models you might have seen in the wild don’t offer the seconds indicator. The seconds hand is actually a disc with the Azimuth logo. Only 99 Pieces in PVD were made and ONLY 10 with the Logo Seconds Disc!
People will ask you what time it is just to get a conversation going about your watch.
