ASTROHELM SERIES – TRIBUTE TO HISTORY

31 July, 2017, the team from Advisor Watch Company (AWC) launched their second collection, AstroHelm on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform for start-up and aspiring brands.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Advisor AstroHelm series pay tribute to the heritage California dial design first appear in the 1930s. It is a watch dial that consists of half Roman and half Arabic numerals.

The markers and hands are lavishly equipped with luminous colour which mimics the appearance of aged radium.

AstroHelm pushes the limit by installing a high double domed glass which resembles an astronaut helmet glass. It beautifully brings out the extreme curve to the watch front and giving it a unique aesthetic look of the timepiece from different angles. History combined with style, the AstroHelm underlining magnificently the vintage character of this watch.

AstroHelm lines up both quartz and automatic limited edition version which caters for different audiences. The special release of automatic version of AstroHelm was added into the campaign based on their supporters’ request and feedback. The key unique feature of the automatic version is in its Brushed Antique Plating Dial, which are not seen on many watches as it require a special processing technique on the dial material which adds on the complexity in producing it.
