I saw this on the Facebook Microbrand site https://www.ianoswatches.com

To me, in the crowded market of Diver watches - this one stands out as being a bit different - with the handwound ETA 7000 movement and some great detailing.

Thought people might be interested if they haven't seen it before.

It does look  quite nice although an ETA 7001 manual wind doesn't immediately come to mind as the ideal choice for a diver's watch.

I do wish these startups would tone down the guff that they write justifying their designs, here's an example! Do they really think it helps them to sell?

The Avyssos is equipped with an ETA 7001 movement which we believe encapsulates the soul of the Avyssos in its simplicity and functionality. Inspired by the men who dove for millennia into the abyss using only a rope and rock, we too wanted a movement which was simple, efficient, tested and dependable, to correspond with the simple, crude, yet effective diving technique utilized by Greek sponge divers, unchanged through the ages.

Yeah the movement is a bit left field - as is the 'strip' display case at the back - but having said that a manual wind does usually result in a slimmer profile.

Perhaps it me - but my automatics always need a bit of a manual wind throughout the week or they end up stopping. So once you accept you'll end up having to manual wind anyone - an auto no longer seems beneficial. :)
