TACS’ AVL II Dark Metal Is A Picture-Perfect Photography & Horology Combo

Presented by

For well over a century, cameras have played a pivotal role in the history of mankind — capturing countless monumental moments in time and providing civilization with an objective photographic record for future generations. And it’s the mighty camera that served as the inspiration for the design of TACS’ best-selling Automatic Vintage Lens II, which is now being offered in a beautiful new Dark Metal variant.

TACS has bestowed the updated timepiece with a new, darker four-layer dial with Super-Luminova coating encompassed by a zoom/focus-ring-inspired rotating bezel and a fish-eye Sapphire crystal face. Further distinguishing the Dark Metal edition from the existing AVL II is a premium stainless steel strap with a deployment buckle that, like the rest of the watch, has been adorned in a stealthy dark gray finish. A skeletonized design with a Sapphire crystal case back places the horological inner workings of the watch’s Citizen Miyota 82S0 movement on full display. Each unit’s 47mm 316L stainless steel case boasts a screw-down crown and serial number plate, along with space earmarked for custom engraving (for an extra $19), and the whole thing comes in a beautiful presentation case.
