Atlas Automatic [38mm] - Gradient Black
Reliable Automatic Movement
Powered by the natural movement of the wearer, this watch does not contain any batteries or electronic components. The deluxe 9015 movement is made in Japan and is one of Miyota’s premium automatic range, with a 42-hour power reserve, 28800 BPH, and 24 jewels. This beautiful, slim movement combines form and function, with outstanding reliability, automatic and manual winding, a quick-set date, and hacking. Admire the beauty and craftsmanship of the mechanical movement through the Atlas’ exhibition case back.
Engineered in solid titanium, the Atlas is so light you will often forget that it is on your wrist. Titanium offers a better strength-to-weight ratio than stainless steel and is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-magnetic and corrosion-resistant. Understated, yet superbly functional, the Atlas Automatic is perfect for everyday wear, at work, or at play.
Momentum Atlas Automatic 38mm Titanium
Overall great design and quality of the case and bracelet, but the clasp feels a little cheap and difficult to open/close. The inside of the sapphire crystal has some specs of dust and some residue that can't be cleaned without open the case, so I have to leave it at that for now.
The photos do not do justice
This is my third or fourth St. Moritz/Momentum watch. I bought it to replace a 38mm Atlas Titanium Alarm (a victim of assassination by washing machine) which I’d worn for years. I like Momentum’s simple, straightforward design, the light weight, and their great after sale service. This Atlas Automatic is notably more attractive than my old watch. The differences are subtle but somehow the gradient colour of the watch face, the domed crystal, and the new bracelet combine to make this look like a much more expensive watch. This is more apparent on the wrist than in photos. So if you are considering this watch, buy it and be delighted. ps - Momentum replaced the movement in my old alarm watch at a very reasonable charge. Now I have one for each wrist ;)
AN EXCELLENT FIELD WATCH
THIS IS THE SECOND FIELD WATCH I PURCHASED FROM MOMENTUM, THE FIRST WAS WITH THE QUARTZ MOVEMENT. I MUST SAY, I AM HAPPY FOR ITS DESIGN, ITS STATE OF THE ART STURDY CASE AND ABOVE ALL, ITS SUPERB MECHANISM AND ACCURACY, SITTING PROUDLY AMONGST OTHER SWISS MADE FIELD WATCHES OF MY COLLECTION.
On the Wrist, from off the Cuff: Momentum – Atlas Automatic, EPIC 38mm Titanium Field Watch
Good looking automatic watch.
Just the right size, keeps great time and highly visible at night. Checks all the boxes.
