With its statement looks and the imposing diameter of its black PVD steel case, the Aerowatch Renaissance Black Tornado – even this finely skeletonised – doesn’t go unnoticed. The architecture is modern, with fine circular chasing on the black NAC-coated movement.
Aerowatch has upheld an enviable global reputation as a maker of extraordinary timepieces for more than 100 years. With a newcomer to the successful “Renaissance grande squelette” line, the family-owned company is presenting a remarkable and unique creation that aficionados of skeletonized watches will embrace with enthusiasm. While focused on traditional values, Aerowatch has repeatedly evoked emotions with debuts of unusual timepieces. The refined “Renaissance Black Tornado” is an iconic example: it embodies all the attributes of genuine watchmaking artistry and apart from the company’s classic heritage also expresses its affinity with contemporary style elements.
With an ample diameter of 45 mm, the innovative skeletonized Aerowatch Renaissance Black Tornado is a true eyecatcher. The stately black PVD-coated case accommodates a manually wound pocket-watch caliber with gracefully curved skeletonizing. For the first time, the movement was coated with black NAC, adding a touch of class to this magnificent work of art. The sapphire-crystal glass and caseback reveal the finesse and details of the skeletonized movement’s pulsating inner life with its hand-chamfered bridges and bars.
One of the Aerowatch Renaissance Black Tornado highlights is the rose-gold-colored winding train with the spirally pierced wheels. The balance beats at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour, manifested by a calmly rhythmic ticking. Black is the decidedly dominant theme of the Aerowatch Renaissance Black Tornado. The matt-black ring with the hour numerals and minute markers blends in with the case and discreetly frames the dial. The hands are coated with Superluminova, making the time legible in the dark as well. A black premium-quality leather strap with an embossed crocodile pattern and a fold-over clasp complement the persuasive visual appeal of this latest creation by Aerowatch, the reputable Swiss watchmaking company.
The dial on the Aerowatch Renaissance Black Tornado has been removed to reveal the mainspring’s fascinating coils, and the rotation of the different wheels as they mesh. Technical, elegant and contemporary, this new creation from Aerowatch appeals as much to aficionados of authentic mechanisms as to fans of finely-crafted Swiss watches at an attractive price.
