A MASTERPIECE IN MATERIALS, TECHNIQUE, AND HEART
The world of watchmaking has always proceeded arm in arm between horological technique and research into new materials. This is how it has evolved, succeeding in creating the near-perfect machines that are modern watches. Over the past 500 years, watchmaking has made many great strides. With the introduction of Aventi Wraith A15-01 Saphite™ Paraiba, it is making even more.
MORE THAN A WATCH, A LABORATORY OF IDEAS
There are many reasons to look closely at the qualities of the Aventi Wraith A15-01 Saphite™ Paraiba, and not only because of its out-of-the-ordinary design: the technical solutions adopted in several cases are unparalleled in the watchmaking field and show that this timepiece was designed to innovate, to move forward, to reach new heights. Aventi is determined in its vision, which is about opening new horizons, and proves it in deeds in this very innovative and distinctive timepiece, which is not afraid to dare and to dare a lot.
THE SAPHITE™ CASE, A JEWEL OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY
Aventi has been working on the concept of sapphire crystal for a long time, intending to succeed in improving it. And that is how it created an innovative material, Saphite™. It is a crystalline structure embedded within a glassy matrix, which allows its qualities and characteristics to be improved. Not only Saphite™ is more resistant to daily use than traditional sapphire glass and less suject to scratches: it has a refractive index of 1.65 as opposed to 1.76, which makes it more transparent and less prone to optical deformation. In addition, Saphite™, as opposed to traditional sapphire crystal, can be colored in an infinite number of different hues, and the proof comes from this delicate blue color, which in nature is found only in tourmalines mined in Brazil’s Paraiba region. An the case, like a huge tourmaline, looks like a real jewel composed of 92 faces and 124 vertices.
THE TOURBILLON REINVENTED
It has been 220 years since the tourbillon was invented. Yet, this rare and precious complication continues to enchant watch lovers with its hypnotic movement. Aventi, in its manufacture caliber GT-01S, has retraced Breguet’s footsteps and reinvented the tourbillon, optimizing it to just 18 elements, as opposed to about 40 in traditional models. Fewer elements, more simplicity, more consistency in horological performance.
A GRADE 5 TITANIUM STRUCTURE
The GT-01S skeletonized movement is made entirely of black titanium, with plates and bridges completely finished with fine perlage and an anglage with mirror polishing of all oblique surfaces. A unique carbon coating protects every element of the caliber. Once assembled, each movement is calibrated by Aventi’s Master Watchmaker, Olivier Mory, to ensure superior chronometric performance. More, the movement offers excellent resistance to magnetic fields (over 2,000 Gauss) and shocks (as much as 5,000 G).
A SKELETON DIAL WITH A GREAT PERSONALITY
It is not just a dial but an actual work of art of micro-engineering. Each dial is made in-house, for a result of utter finesse. The brass is machined with a guilloche hobnail pattern, with an accuracy of up to 0.01 mm, and the outer reliefs are polished and coated with SuperLuminova BGW9.
TWO HANDS NEVER SEEN BEFORE
The Aventi Wraith A15-01 Saphite™ Paraiba has hands made entirely of sapphire crystal. Thousands of hours of research were required to achieve such a result, with the creation of transparent, thin hands finished with a rim coated with SuperLuminova BGW9. A unique feature that makes this watch even more precious and unique.
A CRYSTAL THAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE THERE
The sapphire crystal that protects the dial and hands has a unique look: it is there, but it does not appear to be there. This is the result of a special anti-reflective coating used by Aventi. As many as 7 layers of anti-reflection have been applied to the inner and 7 to the outer surfaces of the Aventi Wraith A15-01 Saphite™ Paraiba to get rid of any trace of reflection, as it might affect a crystal- clear view of the time and movement.
A STRAP WITH A GREAT FIT
The strap, produced in-house, also has characteristics of absolute excellence. It is made of FKM rubber, a special high-density compound (1,800 kg/m3) with an optimized design to promote breathability of the skin, and lines the wrist with a velvety, comfortable feel. In addition, the strap has a steel and titanium butterfly clasp buckle, made in-house, which makes it even easier to put on and remove the watch.
AVENTI, A WATCHMAKER FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE OUT OF THE ORDINARY
Many companies say they are different, but few can really prove so. Aventi does everything to be something new in the global watchmaking scene, as it is different by structure. It is an agile company without factories or showrooms that selects the best worldwide and offers it to its customers, in the purest tradition of the quality etablissage invented in Switzerland. Only our horizons span the globe. Those who identify with Aventi and its philosophy are not afraid to expose themselves, for their role is to chart a course through unknown horizons. And this rare mold of people is not easy to find, but that is what Aventi intends to do, carefully selecting to whom it entrusts its timepieces, which are – and always will be – something more than just a timepiece, regardless of how much perfect that watch may be.
