Axios Watches is proud to introduce the Ironclad - A modern reinvention of an iconic classic.
The Ironclad maintains the definitive dive watch silhouette and is infused with our own design ideas – resulting in a watch that is reminiscent of the past, but wears its own character. The collection is named after the Ironclad battleships which first arrived in 1859 and quickly rose to become the dominant warship of that era.
Engraved onto the caseback of each Ironclad is an image of its namesake warship. Each Ironclad caseback also bears its name, the movement, its serial number and the words “Now comes the reign of iron”, immortalizing the words of Rear Admiral John Dahlgren as he witnessed the first Ironclads ending the 3000-year reign of wooden man-of-war ships in naval warfare.
With a case size of 40mm, ceramic bezel and newly introduced 3.0 micron scratch resistant coating, the Ironclad is as versatile as it is robust. A brilliant sunburst dial with high-polished applied indexes and generous C3 X1 lume ensure that the Ironclad commands tremendous wrist presence.
The Ironclad is powered by the workhorse Swiss Sellita SW200-1 Automatic movement, which guarantees performance even under the most challenging conditions.
