A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
This is the Ultimate Watch
The combination of a Swiss ETA 2824 Movement, flat T-100 tritium tubes, sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating, titanium casing and bracelet and helium release valve water resistance up to 1000m has never been seen altogether in one piece, and this watch truly pulls out all the stops.
Each ETA 2824 movement is individually calibrated by our watchmaker to +/-5 second per day
Let Wing tell us more about the Ultimate Virtuoso Watch!
INTRODUCING THE SWISS FLAT TUBE VIRTUOSO
Since the beginning, ARAGON Watch has dedicated itself to creating luxury timepieces that would satisfy watch enthusiasts on a budget, and our latest project is no exception.
Introducing the ARAGON Virtuoso Flat T-100 Tritium Tube Watch, a limited edition timepiece with a total of only 200 units available, 100 with a blue dial and 100 with a black dial.
WHAT MAKES THIS WATCH SPECIAL
Throughout his time in the industry, ARAGON Watch founder and watch engineer Wing Liang has continually pushed himself to create unique timepieces.
With this timepiece, Wing used top-of-the-line components and materials to design a top-of-the-line watch that could be produced at an affordable price.
Benefits of a titanium watch are that it is a super lightweight metal that is highly corrosion-resistant making it a perfect metal for dive watches as extended use in saltwater will not have an effect on this material.

The Swiss flat tritium tubes on this watch are one of the main features that elevates its level of craftsmanship. Tritium is a self-illuminating gas substance, often used for illuminated exits signs, known for its ability to perform independently of any other power source.
Made by Swiss company mb-microtec H3, the glow from these tubes provides unmatchable readability in darkness. These tubes will glow continuously for up to 25 years even without exposure to light or a battery source.
This watch features 12 flat T-100 tritium tubes, which have a bolder look when compared to their non-flat tritium counterparts. The larger surface area of the tubes can make them appear brighter, providing for ease of visibility in darkness.
The 12-hour marker is distinguished by an orange tube, while the other 11 hours markers are green. The minute, hour and second hands are individually tipped with tritium tubes, with an orange tube distinguishing the second hand.
CRAFTSMANSHIP AT ITS FINEST
The Swiss ETA SA company has long established itself as one of the finest producers of watch movements in the world, and the craftsmanship behind the 25-Jewel ETA 2824 movement used in this limited edition Virtuoso has played a major role in earning that reputation. This highly accurate movement is both reliable and durable, vibrating at a frequency of 28,800 bph and with shock protection built in.
THE WATCH THAT KEEPS GOING
As long as the Virtuoso Flat T-100 Tritium Tube Watch is being worn, the watch will keep on going. After being taken off the wrist, the watch has a power reserve up to 45 hours before the hands stop moving, but all it takes is a little bit of motion (and occasionally some winding) to start it back up again.
AN INTRODUCTION TO MOVEMENTS
For those who may be unfamiliar with watch movements, here's a quick rundown. Watches are divided into two basic categories:
1) quartz watches, which are battery-powered
2) mechanical watches, which are powered by a wound spring
Mechanical watches are typically chosen for luxury pieces because of their level of craftsmanship.
Under the mechanical watches category, there are two types of movements: manual and automatic. With manual movements, the spring inside the watch must be wound by hand in order to power the watch. This Virtuoso has an automatic movement, which is often referred to as a "self-winding" watch because it's powered by the natural motion of the wearer's wrist. Because of this, battery replacements are never needed.
ARAGON Watches aren't made to be the newest iteration of the latest trend. These watches are meant to last, and so is the support team we've built to help you with anything you may need along the way.
In the extremely rare case that something goes wrong, we've got you covered. Our watches have a two-year limited warranty, which covers manufacturer's defects, including movement mechanism. Just reach out to us (via email or Facebook message) so we can help you send it back, and we'll have it ready for you in no time.
Risks and challenges
While we have done our best to minimize all risks with regards to production and shipping, anything can happen. As a company that has been producing watches for years, we have learned to face any unforeseeable issues head on, making sure the customer always gets the best end of the deal.
