Avoid getting lost on the piste with this Aspen watch the Downhill GT , a new version of the Aspen One Compass watch.
Aspen Watches are a Swiss luxury watch brand specializing in Ski- themed watches, and are named after the Colorado ski resort.
The Aspen One Collection is limited to 3,267 pieces total, which also represents the elevation of Mount Aspen from base to peak.
After purchasing an Aspen Watch owners receive an inscription on a monument on top of the mountain as well as a “unique virtual elevation number” and their name inscribed on the watch.
This new variation, the Downhill GT still features the signature hinged case with compass inside but uses a gold inner case and a titanium outer one to keep the overall weight down.
The compass is a Swiss Trek floating disc type and features Aspen area indications and height resistant glass (HR 900).
It comes with two straps, one calf-skin for skiing and one alligator strap for après-ski. The straps use a special patented “ski-binding technique” that makes it easy to change them.
The chronograph movement is caliber ETA 2894-2 that is temperature resistant to 50 ̊C – 122 ̊F and water-resistant to 30 meters. The automatic movement uses a special custom rotor and can be seen through the sapphire exhibition window in the 45mm case. Sapphire glass is used on the front and inside.
Included with the watch are a pair of specially designed deerskin ski gloves from Castelijn & Beerens which have an opening which allows full view of the watch.
