I also have a Chase Durer Condor (3-hand Japanese automatic.). I really like the 3 hand automatics with the date window.
Anyhow...let me know what you think (I have my waders on!). I like Avier because of the ETA movement and all have Sapphire crystals (no flame-protrusion). Thanks!

Last time I saw Avier, they were on sale through Bernard Watch, and that was some time ago.

If that's the case, they're no longer carrying them; last visit they didn't even list Avier any longer.

I recall seeing Avier on either the old SAH or JTV shows, many moons ago. They seemed like a good brand, some of them marked "Swiss Made" on the dial and some not--all of them were ETA automatics, with smaller sized cases, like 38mm. I'd certainly like to see TimeBeings pics when she posts them.

Avier watches are the creation of Jeff Bernard, the owner of BernardWatch and a long-time watch dealer and watch collector.Jeff queried hundreds of his customers, about what qualities they would like in a watch, and once he had formed the vision of his collection, he worked with Swiss suppliers to produce the timepieces.

Thanks, Guys!

I agree, Horse Feathers...I haven't seen Avier for a long time...sometimes they come up on E-Bay. I love the quality. I put some pics of them I found on the Bay, I'm working on doing my own...but that will be another thread! Thanks again, guys! :n p:
