One way we forge this connection is by seeking, and then using, fan input concerning their watches and what they want to see changed, added, improved, and so forth.
A case in point is the original GX1. Yes, it was a smashing success, and the fans showered accolades on the watch. They loved it. It was a real tip of the hat to the design we picked for our flagship timepiece.
But perfection is elusive, and fans let us know some things they’d change if it was up to them. On the wish list was:
- Larger lume indexes
- A colored accent line and outer ring on the 1/100th of a second subdial
- Redesign the concave ring for a more open look
- A tighter-lined sunburst pattern, giving the dial a more 3D feel
The GX1 gone wild
As in the flagship model, this new hunk will endure through thick and thin with its anti-reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, and case back, and 300 M water resistance. It also features the same precision Swiss RONDA startech Caliber 5040.D movement.
We continue to craft and introduce new models with different but just as unique designs. As that process continues, where will the GX1 go next? In large measure, that’s up to our fans. You spoke, we listened, and the second generation of the GX1 was born. We think it is a winning combination.
