The Avra 1-Hundred timepiece marries vintage and modern design elements and is fashioned out of durable stainless steel and titanium materials. The watch features a 360-degree auxiliary time display and boasts Avra's patented Chronolock™ locking system that ensures an air-tight seal when the timepiece is submerged in water.

Consumers seeking a sophisticated and minimalist timepiece will fall in love with this modern take on a traditional analog watch. The Avra 1-Hundred model diverges from the conventional round face to accommodate a second display located along its side. Featuring an industrial and masculine aesthetic, the timepiece is loosely inspired by automotive concepts, something that its founder and Director of Design Nicholas DiLoreto is very familiar with. Having worked as an automotive designer with BMW and Volvo, DiLoreto references the sleek and mechanical design details of cars to create his signature collection of updated, analog watches.
