My wrist check today features yet another Aragon watch, it’s called The Antigravity. I think this watch was released last year by Aragon and for me it was love at first sight. You can check out the specifications below but the two stand-out features - a spectacular double dome crystal and the over-sized power reserve indicator. I’ve always been a fan of dome crystals and have seen a few high end watches on Instagram featuring extreme dome’s, but this one seems to have the perfect curve, I love it. In addition, this is the first watch in my collection that features a power reserve indicator. I remember lusting over a gold Seiko Kinetic back in 1988 with its crazy Alien vs. Predator style links on the bracelet. It was way out of my price range at about $400 but I really wanted that watch mainly because of the cool looking over-sized power reserve indicator that swept around half the dial. I cut a photo of that watch out of a GQ magazine and kept it in my wallet for years, I may still have that worn out photo somewhere in my office....ha! Even if power reserve indicators aren’t that accurate they sure look cool, and now I want them on every watch. My Antigravity looks great as I catch glimpses of it on my wrist throughout the day. The dome reminds me of the face shield on the helmet of a NASA space suit so along with the actual name “Antigravity” I may start calling it “The Martian”. Many of my non-watch collecting friends don’t get it but all the other watch fanatics I know are onboard.

Thank you for posting this! I've seen some of their DiveMasters online before but didn't know about the Antigravity and absolutely fell in love with it when I saw your post. Mine arrived yesterday and it is absolutely gorgeous! That domed crystal just blows me away. I bought the 45 mm one and got it on sale for $181 delivered, an amazing deal if you ask me. It is at the uppermost size limit for my 6.75" wrist, but it's a keeper. If anyone else is interested in their watches, they tend to have sales on various holidays, my guess is that Father's Day is probably a sure thing for that. I got it on a "Mother's Day" sale of all things, plus an additional 30% off with a coupon code that I googled for.
Cheers!

Wing Liang the lead designer & CEO over at Aragon Watch know how to design a watch. I love my Antigravity automatic!
A men's watch!
That is really cool, but, man, would I be nervous about klonking the crystal on a doorframe.

Yes, I have had plenty of wacks and bumps against door jams, banistes, tables, and chairs with many of my watches over the years. I am a bit more jittery about this watch more than others - all I can do is go about my day and hope for the best.
