Round becomes angularThe DAVOSA Evo 1908 Automatic harks back to the era of the first moulded cases
Its highly polished stainless steel case with fine satined details still displays conspicuous curves as a reference to the pocket watch.
With dimensions of 39.5 mm by 36 mm, it has a barrel-like, tonneau form. The hours and minutes are still displayed separately from the seconds. And finally, the classic model features a guilloché pattern in its dial design.
Contemporary interpretation of a classic
Despite all these reminiscences of times gone by, the remaining features of the DAVOSA Evo 1908 prove that it is a modern, exclusive timepiece. The Swiss SW260 movement is an unusual variation of the 3-hand automatic with date display. The striking Arabic figures, indices and the date at 3 o’clock are easily readable at a glance. The back of the 12 mm-high case is screwed down fourfold and is water resistant to 50 m (5 ATM). Moreover, the Vintage leather straps with a pin buckle are all one of a kind: the leather is individually selected and colour-coordinated to suit each dial version.
Traditional and sporty versions
There are two versions to choose from. The classic version is available with a light or dark guilloché dial, with a minutes display on an inner ring, as well as polished and hand-applied hands coated with Super-LumiNova. Straps and stitching harmonise beautifully. In contrast, the sporty version is immediately striking thanks to contrasting stitching on the brown or black straps. The cream, blue and black dials without an inner ring are more restrained, with Super-LumiNova on the hands and hour markers.
Both the dial and the scratch-resistant sapphire glass are doubly curved to match the case form. A further sophisticated detail: the extended back ensures a perfect transition to the strap and prevents any kinks. All the models in the DAVOSA Evo 1908 series retail at 998 €.
