The Force 1

The AVeritas Force 1 is a Pilot watch inspired design. Reminiscent of the pilot watches designed during WWII, the Force 1 is born. The Force 1 borrows some of the original pilot dial elements and combines them with a few modern subtleties. A small splash of color adds a contemporary touch. Hands, badge and strap stitching accent the crisp black and white features. Our top quality Caliber 218 manual wind movement is inside.  It is decorated with a radial côtes de Genève pattern, Swan neck adjustment and blued screws.
Available in Competition Red, Velocity Yellow and Flame Orange.

Limited to only 90 pieces.

Deep gray electroplated, with the main plate and pallet fork bridge decorated with perlée pattern. The remaining bridges are ornamented with radial côtes de Genève and blued screws. 38 hour power reserve. Adjusted to 5 positions.
