Aviation Inspired Tool Watch
Drawing inspiration from cockpit instruments designs and the magic of flight, the OPUS line of watches makes a bold statement about who you are as a person, what you value, and the kind of life that you are living. With various improvements and update to our first model, the 39mm 100m WR Opus v2 is your Go-Anywhere-Do-Anything (GADA) dressy pilot watch.

The OPUS is water resistant up to 100m / 333ft / 10 ATM. We have designed a vital red crown tube as an indicator when the crown has not been screwed down properly. The screw-down crown is engraved with ALCADUS logo and filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova® Luminescent BGW-9.
Inspired by the vintage flieger watches and is designed to give a modern touch, our 316L stainless steel case features a combination of polished and brushed finish. Your Opus v2 are coated with a high tech scratch-resistant coating with a hardness of 800 HV (four times the average 200 HV of uncoated stainless steel), so you can wear your watches for years on end.
Box Sapphire Crystal
A true piece of vintage art, the OPUS features a box-shaped sapphire crystal that sticks out beyond the case edge/bezel, an improvement on the easily-scratched plexiglass (acrylic glass) previously common to box-shaped watches lenses.
Extraordinarily hard at 2200-2300 HV, the sapphire crystals used in the watches are virtually unbreakable, rivalled only by the diamond in terms of hardness and scratch resistance.
Anti-Reflective the Smart Way
There are five layers of anti-reflective coating applied to the top lens to prevent glare – not on both sides, as that can lead to scratching. Instead, the OPUS features an inner anti-reflective coating.
The OPUS collection is heavily inspired by the cockpit instrument designs and the pilot / flieger watch design. The dial design is reduced to bare essentials, with superior luminescent for legibility at low light condition.
In a traditional flieger watch, the triangular index at 12 O’clock position allows the pilots to quickly determine the upward orientation of the watch in the dark. The OPUS substitutes the traditional triangular index with the ALCADUS logo.
All hands are diamond cut for precision. The length of the hand is faceted to provide three-dimensional depth and to catch light for better legibility. The Opus v2 uses Grade A Super-LumiNova® BGW-9 (glows bluish white).
Miyota 9019 Automatic Movement
This is a premium Japanese movement that has known for its consistency and reliability. The OPUS V2 will be assembled with an in-house regulated Miyota 9019 automatic movement with a solid caseback.
