The famous watch brand Athens will participate in the 2014 Basel International Watch Fair as scheduled. The watch fair will be held in Basel, Switzerland at the end of next month, when Athens will officially withdraw from a new limited edition perpetual calendar watch.
The watch has a round case with a diameter of 43 mm in 18k yellow or white gold. Water resistant to 30 meters.

There are two prominent buttons at the 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock positions of the watch, which are (+) (-) keys for quick adjustment of the watch.
The perpetual calendar is a very complicated mechanical device, not only considering that the month is 30 or 31 days, but also distinguishing 28 days in February, and the automatic adjustment of the leap year every four years on February 29, which represents the wrist The watch has 1,461 days of mechanical memory. The perpetual calendar watch will undergo the first manual adjustment in 2100. Since the year 2100 should be a leap year on the solar calendar, but there is no February 29, so the date of the watch needs to be shifted back one day.
The back is a bottom-through design. Through the sapphire crystal glass of the back cover, you can see the UN-32 self-winding movement inside. The movement is set with 34 gems. The vibration frequency is 288000 times / hour. Display hours, minutes, seconds, second time zone, date, day of the week, month, year.
The watches are equipped with folding clasps and crocodile leather straps. Each watch is engraved with the factory number at 9 o’clock, which is unique.
