Ever since their presentation in 2013 we’ve been following Pinion intently. We played several long time surveys of the Pinion Pure and Pinion Axis leslie gems and we lauded them for the significant degree of detail and quality given to the dial, hands and packaging. Presently, we acquaint with you the Pinion Atom. A Pinion leslie gems with a cordial sticker price, without surrendering the general completion and quality we adulated them for in the past.
You can’t have missed the way that BaselWorld this year was about reasonable leslie gems “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 thought of value revisions, 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 interminable 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 leslie adornments with a lower sticker price but then have something fascinating to bring to the table. The interest in microbrands and moderate new comers as a rule expanded a lot among fans, which is a reasonable sign to the set up brands. The inquiry is whether they will get this signal.
Anyway, we can add another fascinating and reasonable leslie adornments 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 leslie adornments For this sort of cash, a Seiko Presage or Sinn 104 will be the main competitors from the previously mentioned brands. Oris has no recommendation in this cost range.
Of course, we still can’t seem to see the leslie adornments in the tissue, yet dependent on the plan and the past Pinion models we have an uplifting point of view toward the Pinion Atom.
The Pinion Atom has a 42mm breadth, dot impacted tempered steel case, sapphire curved precious stone and comes on a hand-made 22mm calfskin lash. It has a water obstruction of 100 meters. The huge dial will have Arabic numerals, a focused Clous-de-Paris finish and a date opening at 6 o’clock. All constructed, collected and tried in England and comes with a calfskin and material leslie adornments 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.
