As a continuation of Pinion’s entry-point Atom line, the Atom 39 ND (No Date) serves an uncomplicated design paired with subtle and contrasting colours on the watch dial and hands.
Encased in matt-blasted stainless steel, the Atom 39 ND is powered by the ubiquitous Swiss-made ETA2824-2 automatic movement providing accurate timekeeping and impressive track record for reliability.
Made as a strict low-run edition, the Atom 39ND features a handmade leather watch strap, and along with all Pinion watches, the design, assembly and testing is conducted in England.
A smaller case
The Atom 39 ND has a practical case size of 39mm, making it the smallest Pinion watch to date. However, with a modest height of 11mm, the Atom 39 ND still retains the utilitarian nature seen in the rest of the Pinion watch collection.
In keeping with the functional aspect of the Atom 39 ND, the case has a matt blasted finish, providing an overall darker appearance to the stainless steel metal.
When Pinion first launched the Atom in 2017, it featured a Japanese Miyota movement. The Atom 39 improves on this by being powered by the ubiquitous Swiss-made ETA2824-2 providing accurate timekeeping and impressive track record for reliability. The legible display is without a date, and so the date wheel function has been disconnected from the movement before assembly and testing.
The Atom 39 ND dial has a wider opening for the proportion of the 39mm case, providing maximum legibility for timekeeping.
For this adaptation of the Atom, subtle colour is used providing attention to the dial and this is complemented by a contrasting hue on the running second hand.
For increased visibility in low light, the Atom 39 ND has Super-Luminova applied to the dial and hands. This appears to glow green when fully charged by a light source and it’s ‘C3’ configuration makes it one of the brightest glowing lumes made.
