Axios Flagship 40 Defiance 200-Meter Automatic Dive Watch with Box AR Sapphire Crystal #AX-01Golden hands and accents contrasting against a black dial and sapphire coin-edge bezel with a dash of red at the 12 o'clock triangular marker. The Flagship Defiance owes its name to the HMS Defiance - "the fastest 74 gun ship in the British fleet" that sailed alongside the Victory in the Battle of Trafalgar.
A truly excellent watch tells a story, and the story of the Flagship finds its spirit in the man of Horatio Nelson, Vice Admiral of the British Royal Navy. As a commander, Lord Nelson was a brilliant naval strategist and best known for his decisive role in the Battle of Trafalgar in October of 1805. Etched onto the caseback of each Flagship is the HMS Victory, the last flagship of Lord Nelson as he sailed into battle against Napoleon's larger naval force.
The watch is powered by a high-beat (i.e. 28,800 VPH) Miyota 9015 automatic movement housed in a 40mm diameter 316L stainless steel case. The 120-click uni-directional bezel features a luminous sapphire bezel insert. The crystal is a box sapphire with inner anti-reflective coating. And, the black dial has a sunburst effect under bright light or sunlight. The hands, markers and bezel insert are treated with SuperLuminova C3 X1 and BGW9. The watch comes with a rice-beads style stainless steel bracelet with a deployant clasp plus, a black tropic rubber strap.
