Tacs is proud to release its latest timepiece, the automatic Vintage Lens II or AVL II. As a Japanese brand that creates lifestyle watches, Tacs set out to design a watch that is suitable for photographers and videographers. Drawing on the rich history of reflex cameras and the success of the Vintage Lens, we have developed this automatic watch. The cushion watch case is 46.5 millimeter diameter and in 316L stainless steel. The assembly of an acetate plate under the bezel creates this look of a two-tone black / gray camera. On this watch we have chosen to use a high quality domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, so that the viewing angles are suitable even in direct sunlight. This multilayer glass under the appearance of a lens highlights the lens side of the camera. The rotating bezel displays a diamond pattern which also makes the link with the world of photography. This motif is reproduced on the screw-down crown placed at 3 o'clock, which allows you to modify the time as desired. The back case is screwed down and has a transparent sapphire crystal that allows you to observe the mechanism in motion. Let yourself be seduced by this functional watch with a look for photography enthusiasts.
For this version of the Automatic Vintage Lens II model, we present a dial which is the centerpiece of the whole and which gives the soul to this timepiece. Inspired by the camera, the overall look of this black dial combines the essentials of a timepiece with the recognizable features of a camera in perfect balance. Round and open at its center on the mechanism, this dial features a lens that makes the link with the world of photography. The 3 two-tone luminous hands in the form of sticks indicate the time to the nearest second. In order to remain in the originality and representation of the camera, the hours and minutes are not indicated. However, around the edge of the dial, Arabic numerals 12, 15, 17; 19, 21, 24, 28, 50 are placed on a gray background, indicate the minutes and recall the focal lengths to strengthen the link with the photo.
This design and vintage model houses an automatic movement made in Japan. It is a Miyota 82S0 caliber which will animate the hour, minute and second hands. With 21 jewels and an oscillation frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, this caliber offers you a power reserve of approximately 42 hours and an accuracy of -20 / + 40 seconds per day.
The strap of this timepiece is entirely in stainless steal color silver. It closes with a butterfly buckle. Thanks to its 24-millimeter lug, it will easily adapt to the male wrist for a circumference wrist of maximum 145mm for the leather strap and 205 mm for the metal band strap. The watch strap is fitted with special integrated spring bars (also known as Easy Change, Quick Release or Quick Pins) to enable a fast watch strap exchange.
This model offers a water resistance of 10 atmospheres, or 100 meters only if the crown is correctly closed and screwed down. We are talking about a waterproof model here! This model with a nice style is therefore ready to happily jump with you into an aquatic universe. From puddles to the swimming pool, this timepiece will tolerate swimming without complaint! Shower, bath and sport swimming by your side do not scare it.
