Introducing the Pinion Atom: a new entry point to the Pinion family

Pinion presents a new watch for 2017, titled ‘Atom’. The Atom inherits all of the design and production qualities seen in the previous collection of watches, but priced at £790 (£658.33 ex. VAT) signals it as the new entry-point to the Pinion family.

Like the Axis II and Pure before it, the Atom is sized at 42mm diameter, (but slimmer in height at 11mm) and is encased in 316L stainless steel with a bead-blasted finish. Central to the watch, is the dial, coloured black in a smooth satin finish, it features a dominant inner raised level, textured with a geometric machining. The design of the dial follows our graphic code established by previous models and presents typographic numerals in white, coated with SuperLuminova and contrasting radium colouring. For durability, the watch is water resistant to 100-metres depth. In a new move for Pinion, the Atom utilises the Japanese automatic winding calibre (Miyota 9015) which provides accurate timekeeping and a 42-hour power reserve. The reverse of the watch features a solid steel case back that is engraved with the Atom motif and individually numbered. Like all the Pinion watches, the Atom is built and tested in England and comes with a hand-made leather strap, leather and canvas watch roll plus international two-year warranty.

The price of the Pinion Atom is £790 (£658.33 for no EU customers). The price includes shipping within the UK, shipping internationally is £25 extra. The Pinion Atom is available to buy exclusively online from the Pinion online shop and will be ready for shipping from July 2017 onwards. Customers wishing to reserve one of the first watches, may do so by paying a £250 deposit at the Pinion online shop. The first 25 customers may choose any serial number (001 – 025) and receive a complimentary printed Pinion Atom t-shirt made by Iron Heart with their watch (Subject to sizing and availability).
