Thread: The CD-1's are coming!

  1. #1

    The CD-1's are coming!

    Aegir is starting final assembly of their initial CD-1 diver models in the next week and they will be shipping very soon. Todd took a quick photo of his for us to show a Q&D look at what the final product looks like. IMO they look fantastic...enough for me to order my second Aegir in 2 weeks!! I have seen the white, black and grey dials in person and they are all great. The white is crisp and the brushed grey shifts tone in different light from almost black to light grey...awesome!!!



    Below are screen shots from their site with info (in AUD, so it'll be less in USD) and a quick shot from Todd. (They come on an IsoFrane)

    I don't know much about Aegir. I'll have to pay more attention.

    Todd from Aegir is a commercial diver and makes serious tool watches. Not your average catalog watch, that's for sure! I love the dial texture on this one:

    Yeah, actually the dial texture on that watch is what got my attention. That and the common color tones among the case and dial.

    I don't normally like Grey dials...but man, the grey dial on this particular model is singing to me!

    Yeah, that is what pulled me into my purchase. It goes so nicely with the case finish!
