The launch of the new UN-118 movement of Athens Watch has once again proved its leadership in the watch industry. After more than a year of anticipation, this movement finally appeared in the new ‘Original Marine Observatory Watch’.
The UN-118 movement is the first member of the self-developed movement series of Athenian Watch. It adopts the patented DIAMonSIL escapement developed in cooperation with the Swiss company Sigatec. Sigatec is currently the only company in the world capable of producing high-precision parts from silicon and DiamonSil. DIAMonSIL is a lightweight but hard material that reduces friction without the need for lubricants. The enamel dial is handmade by Donzé Cadrans, a globally recognized enamel dial expert and the latest member of the Athenian Watch Group. It is equipped with a stainless steel, rose gold, and titanium case.
In the 19th century, international trade began to rise, and transportation at that time mainly relied on shipping. The astronomical clocks of this period are considered to be the most accurate timepieces to ensure the accurate voyage of the captains and their valuable cargo. Most of these timepieces are produced in Athens.
