In this review, I present to you a watch of the brand Axia Time, the Kairos model.
I must admit that it has been a while since an affordable watch did not make me vibrate to that extent, and I have enjoyed wearing it for 15 days because it leaves no one indifferent.
About Axia Time
The Axia brand was born from a very original project, because John Kanaras, a member of our group, had the idea to propose to the American universities, a personalized and qualitative watch.
In fact, American universities, which are used to offer watches with their logo, do so most of the time with low-end quartz watches.
Now, in some universities, we can witness a real ceremonial during which students are given a magnificent swiss made watch displaying the logo of their university, This moment remains engraved for life in their memory, especially when we know the attachment of Americans to their university. You will be able to see a photo of the Axia shown on their Facebook page.
Based on his success with the universities, John decided to offer his watches to a wider audience and that is why I have the chance to present this splendid model.
So here is the Kairos model, presented here with a blue dial. Kairos is coming from the ancient Greek ΚΑΙΡΟΣ, means «perfect moment» or «timing».
For starters, Axia watches are swiss made, a guarantee of high quality and when you look at the watch as a whole, you see a watch that is simple, visually effective and of a crazy class.
My model therefore has a blue dial with beautiful reflections, fine silver and polished hands and indexes, a discreet but perfectly readable date window located at 6h.
It also shows the logo of the brand, a Greek symbol because of john’s origins but also because the student houses of American universities often bear a Greek alphabet name.
The case has the perfect size according to me for a watch dressed because it is 40mm and it is made of polished steel. As often happens, the logo is engraved on the polished crown at 3 o’clock.
The case back is transparent with a sapphire crystal and engraved with the watch number because there are 500 copies per dial color.
Our watch is equipped with a Sellita sw 200 movement that no longer needs to be presented, that has the logo engraved on it and equipped with blue screws of the most beautiful effect, especially for those who would have the idea to wear their watch upside down.
Concerning the bracelet of my watch, it has the Breitling style and is like the case, polished steel.
This polished case and bracelet set makes this watch shine and I must admit that it takes a time to adapt but after wearing it several times with a suit, I fell in love with it.
Know that you can choose to have a polished steel bracelet in submariner style and for those who would not dare or who do not like polished bracelet, the Kairos is offered with a leather bracelet with 4 colors to choose from.
Finally, our superb Kairos is delivered in a beautiful leather transport case and I really weigh my words because I had never received an affordable watch in such a qualitative case.
In summary, Axia offers us a watch that combines symbols of ancient Greece, a classic design and a very modern vision I say it again, but it’s amazing to be so pleasantly surprised by a watch when I’m starting to see a certain amount of it. So, if you are looking for a dress watch, class, that goes with all your outfits and feels qualitative, go visit the page of Axia Time and you can discover the various models proposed.
