For Black Friday 2020 we decided to treat you all with something special. That is why we made an upgrade to our 1926 All Black; the All Black Automatic. Our 1926 collection is a humble celebration of the year of 1926 when the first waterproof wristwatch was designed.
With this new release, we also introduced our brand-new strap: an all black heavy mesh bracelet. Both the watch and the strap is covered in a strong PVD coating and with the 10ATM you can easily bring this sleek, black timepiece along with you on all your adventures; above and below the big, blue ocean.

Great watch for everyday use, cool design, and awesome vintage inspired look. I really like the functionality. The only drawback of the watch is the movement, as it has a Miyota 800 with day and date functions, which are then ghosted for this watch.
Thank you for taking the time to share your honest experience with us! We appreciate all the kind words about the design and functionality of our watches, and the constructive feedback as well.
Wishing you an awesome day!
I really love the design, sandwich dial, dial color, hands and bracelet. Lume not so great. Although I’ve come to realize that the watch was assembled in China (no indication on website or from any reviewer), it really feels like a quality piece and value for the price point. The Automatic movement should be solid and last. So far it has run well and met the 40hr reserve. Great presentation box. Ultimately I bought two watches from AV.
Overall I am very pleased with this watch, the rose gold and blue work perfectly together and the broad bezel gives it even more of a vintage style and unique looks. The finishing is great, just as with my first About Vintage watch. The only thing I would have wished for is that the movement was hacking and from the Miyota 9 series instead of the 8 series.
