In the constellation of Lyra, mainly visible in northern hemispheres, you will find Vega.
Vega is a Main Sequence star that is the fifth brightest star in our sky and it emits no natural colour to the human is pure, colour-free starlight.

As a contrast to the natural colour of my Antares design, the polished aluminium on the Vega is a gleaming silver. The use of aluminium creates a not often found feature on luxury watches; at 63 grams for the finished watch, it is very lightweight.

As with previous builds, my designs convey exposed, natural metal and clean, interesting lines while featuring a very unusual lug design. With few exceptions, there is little decoration...simply the metal and what needs to be present. The dial is brushed steel, the same dial found on my Antares design.

Please note:

I do not consider my watch water resistant, however a light pressure test is applied to make sure dust and moisture stays out.

*Due to the handmade nature, all measurements are + or - 2.5%

The mechanism for my watch comes from Japan, while the case is entirely made by myself by hand (no computers here) in Wimbledon, southwest London.

My watches are handmade pieces designed to look beautiful and as such, may differ slightly from piece to piece. My goal is to present a beautiful watch for your wrist, not make each piece exactly the same as the one that came before.
