Teaming up with Bamford London, Aether has unveiled its first-ever watch, a limited-edition Swiss Automatic GMT, designed to cater to discerning gentlemen seeking both style and utility.

The timepiece is truly a sight to behold, featuring a captivating matte black case embellished with elegant blue and white accents. Made of corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel, this watch is wind and water-resistant up to a depth of 100 meters.  The dial of the watch showcases a topographic-inspired pattern, adding a touch of adventurous spirit to its sophisticated appearance. Embracing versatility, Aether and Bamford have chosen a deep blue NATO-style strap that complements the overall design and ensures that the watch can effortlessly transition from formal gatherings to outdoor escapades. Not only that, but the military-grade strap is breathable and won’t slide all over the wrist, meaning one can run a board meeting or hike in the Swiss Alps with ease. This extraordinary timepiece caters to the modern man who values both craftsmanship and adventure,  transitioning from city streets to off-the-beaten-path excursions.
