 BACK TO THE BASICS 

 In the world of AISION, we believe that design is just back to the basics. The world around us is our source of constant inspiration. Beauty exists in the smallest of details. Our mission is to present the unique aesthetics of AISION with design and production.

WHY KICKSTARTER?

AN-S01 is our first design project, and we have many innovative design concepts behind it. Therefore, we hope to use KICKSTARTER to achieve our design philosophy. We will use this funding to develop and deliver better designs and products. Let the end users know our unique design aesthetics from the product.

AN-S01

 “SPACE” is the theme of design. We skillfully applied hemisphere glass to greatly increase the design capacity of the dial. We created a streamlined and stereoscopic dial. The unique case design moulds the watch into a UFO shape, matching the design theme "Space".

HOW TO READ THE TIME

CASE DESIGN

Our case was inspired by the public's impression of UFO. Therefore, we use high dome Hesalite glass to match the shape of the UFO. In addition, we use the different metal finishing on the case. It gives the case a different light reflection. These variations catch the light beautifully, making it look like a UFO.

DIAL DESIGN

There has two main part of the dial. The first one is the metal skeleton, which is inspired by the streamline of the wheel. The second part is the disc hands. We designed the own fonts to match our design. In the cooperation of all parties, we got a futuristic and minimal watch.

MOVEMENT

The Miyota caliber 82S0 is from the 8215/821A family but offers a skeletonized dial design. There is also a gilt (gold tone) version available.

Miyota claims that the caliber 82S0 offers accuracy of -20 ~ +40 seconds per day. This is measured within 10-60 minutes from a full wind via the crown. To fully wind the movement, turn the crown 40 times. The winding direction of the rotor is counterclockwise.

Risks and challenges

In this project, the biggest challenge is production. We are startups, so many manufacturers are not willing to help us develop new products. Because our production is not much, and our design is not simple in production. And we’re fortunate to find a trusted supplier willing to support us. Which is established for over 20 years. We will produce unique and high quality watches for every backer. And you feel the unique aesthetics of AISION from the products.

We will try our best to respect the schedule but we have the responsibility to warn you that a slight delay in the production process might happen. We will keep you updated if there are any changes and we will always be here to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the project from the start and to all our backers!
