For Black Friday 2020 we decided to treat you all with something special. That is why we made an upgrade to our 1926 All Black; the All Black Automatic. Our 1926 collection is a humble celebration of the year of 1926 when the first waterproof wristwatch was designed.
With this new release, we also introduced our brand-new strap: an all black heavy mesh bracelet. Both the watch and the strap is covered in a strong PVD coating and with the 10ATM you can easily bring this sleek, black timepiece along with you on all your adventures; above and below the big, blue ocean.

I really love the design, sandwich dial, dial color, hands and bracelet. Lume not so great. Although I’ve come to realize that the watch was assembled in China (no indication on website or from any reviewer), it really feels like a quality piece and value for the price point. The Automatic movement should be solid and last. So far it has run well and met the 40hr reserve. Great presentation box. Ultimately I bought two watches from AV.
Overall I am very pleased with this watch, the rose gold and blue work perfectly together and the broad bezel gives it even more of a vintage style and unique looks. The finishing is great, just as with my first About Vintage watch. The only thing I would have wished for is that the movement was hacking and from the Miyota 9 series instead of the 8 series.
Nice watch to watch. Dark blue in real is inside almost black, but beautiful blue outside in sunlight. Nice sice on my wrist. Get positive reacties. Good choice.
you sent the wrong watch

I'm wearing this watch every day. It is solid with a good movement. I wish the bazel would have been ceramic but is still a great watch. I love the dial!!! I absolutely love the sandwich dial! The shipping was fast.
Thank you for so much for your positive review - it is very much appreciated! The 1926 Automatic is definitely a beautiful watch and we are pleased to hear the shipping went smoothly as well.
Wishing you an amazing day and summer :-)
