About

We're all petrol heads at Aevum and in the Aevum community; the love we have for our machines is in our blood and a way of life. 

Our watches reflect that passion and now we're taking it further with our newest model 

 UPDATE:  Track Kits available Apr 20th, 22:00 EDT!

 Our newest limited set of Advance automatics - the Advance Track Kit!

Literally.  Not only does the Advance keep great time, it's also stuffed with ignition/cam timing styling cues only true auto enthusiasts will pick up on. 

The Advance's screw-down crown crown goes beyond just looking the part.  Aside from the laser engraved adjustable cam gear design, the grip teeth on the crown are flat top half moon cut - just what you'd find on an actual cam gear. 

The Advance is lumed with Swiss Superluminova BGW9 lume making the sandwich dial markers white during the day and a very vibrant blue in the dark.  Another fun timing-themed Easter egg is the lumed cam timing line-up mark at 3 O'clock. 

Around the chapter ring of the Advance is a cam timing degree wheel that showcases piston position with TDC (Top Dead Center) at 12 and BDC (Bottom Dead Center) at 6 O'clock. 

Here's a run through of the Advance build: 

CASE - Stainless steel 42 x 48 mm at 11.5 mm high on the wrist.  The case has been straight brushed while the bezel is finished in a radial brushed look.  A polished lip aesthetically separates the styles.

CASE BACK - Exhibition design with engraved ring (image further down)

LUGS - Uniquely shaped lugs,  22 mm spacing

CRYSTAL - Sapphire with anti-reflection coating

WATER RESISTANCE - 20 ATM (200 meters / 660 ft)

LUME - BGW9 Swiss Superluminova                                            

MOVEMENT - Seiko NH35 Self-winding and hacking automatic with Aevum shield engraved on the rotor                                              

WARRANTY - 2 Year manufacturers defect coverage

The Advance's case back showcases key countries that play a large role in its creation: 

 The Advance is being released in 4 different dial colour options. 

 While we're still using our two tier kit design like we did for our first two watch models, we've made some tweaks.  The Entry was a base kit with a single strap and the Enthusiast was a premium kit with multiple straps, including our leather strap - handmade here in-house at Aevum, Canada. 

This time, it's a bit different.  Let's see how!

Pre-order priced at $345 CAD, this is an exciting kit.  The Enthusiast kit for the Advance is a big change up from our previous models.  Why?  Well, it's limited to 5 per dial colour to start!  A total of 20 Enthusiast kits will be made for the Advance (4 dial colours at 5 per colour) and they are a fun load out.  Let's take a peek:

  • A specifically designed for the Enthusiast kit Aevum 100% handmade leather strap with your choice of initials stamped on the back
  • An Aevum waterproof silicone strap

We'd also like to note we are proudly sponsoring James Houghton, our local Kitchener North American time attack champion and his Unlimited FWD series Integra Type-R again this year!  We're looking forward to seeing more records broken in 2018!

Thanks very much for your visit today!  Whether you're here to support Aevum Timepieces by getting your Advance pre-ordered or just stopping in to take a peek, we appreciate it!   

Risks and challenges

We've successfully launched two Aevum watch models via Kickstarter and look forward to bringing our Aevum community our third with very low risk to our guests.

The Advance will be a longer undertaking due to the numbers (300 watches instead of our previous 100 watch releases). Instead of having the Advance already being built, we will have to have it go into mass production after our campaign closes. Aside from an increase in volume, the Advance should be a smooth build.
