How many ways can you make a watch tick? Wrist watches date all the way back to the 15th century, yet still every year it seems makers finds a new permutation of the timepiece, some compelling, others not so much. AVRA’s flagship 1-Hundred is one of those few that really work, however.

This piece from the new AVRA Watch Company reportedly took over six years to develop and features four different patented technologies. Not only can wearers glance at the face of the watch to get an idea of the time, but the side of the face is wrapped in a sapphire crystal that provides a window into a secondary time display. Waterproof for up to 300 feet thanks to the brand’s Chronolock system, and with index marks coated with a Super Luminova, this watch can withstand deep dives and be read in the darkest nights. Technical aspects aside, the watch manages to blend a retro aeronautic feel with a modern one that results in something truly unique. Currently offered in either stainless steel or Titanium, each of these watches are made to order in Switzerland and take up to 6 months to build. Prices start at $5,500. [Purchase]
