A reimagining of the original Axis II, now in a sleeker 38mm size.

Stainless steel watch, powered by a Swiss automatic movement (Sellita SW200-1).

Galvanic blue dial in a satin finish.

Applied numbers at 12,3,6,9.

SuperLuminova® BG-W9 (white, glows blue-green) on the numerals and hands.

Designed, finished, assembled and tested in England.

Note: We now also offer full stitched straps in dark brown and black, please email us when ordering if you prefer one of those.



“The original Axis’ primary focus was simplicity and legibility. Now a short-run edition of this model from 2018 features a sleeker 38mm case size whilst retaining all the detail from the original model”

– Piers Berry, Pinion Founder.


Presented in a matt galvanic blue colour, this watch references the 42mm Axis II Bronze originally released in 2018. The larger applied numerals, the same style as seen on other releases such as the R-1969 and TT are machined from brass, sandblasted, nickel coated and filled with Super Luminova. Completing the dial are supporting radium coloured minute markers and a practical date display at 4:30.

Infinity on the wrist

On the reverse of the watch, is an exclusive illustration produced by British illustrator, Keisha Karlsen which has been engraved in-house.

The illustration is an interpretation of ‘Infinity on the wrist’ – and features a two-headed serpent joined in endless motion- referencing the continual powering of the automatic Swiss Sellita SW200 movement when the watch is worn.

A smaller size

This Axis II is presented in a smaller 38mm size compared to the original (42mm) making it a sleeker and more refined  profile when worn on the wrist.
