DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Naturally, having spent so long working on our two debut watches, the P-1 Pilot and the D-1 Diver, we admit to being a little biased. We love them. But ultimately, it doesn’t matter what we think. What matters is what our potential customers think. So, we decided to get the opinions of people we respect out there – leading figures in the watch, design and fashion industries. And we plan to update this page regularly. Having seen and handled the watches, and with different experiences and perspectives, each will naturally have their own personal take. Here’s what they said.

Aera’s new D-1 Diver does not disappoint. It’s genuinely hard to come up with something new in this field. And not just something new, but something that feels contemporary. The D1-Diver is a modern watch. It belongs to now.

To my mind the P-1 Pilot sits squarely at the intersection between ‘design watch’ and ‘tool watch’. Yes, it’s functional, but it also looks super-cool with it. This is a serious piece of watchmaking, assembled, tested and finished in Switzerland. Its dial is one-piece. There is no tapered ring to mess with the minimalist aesthetic – there doesn’t need to be.

'Both models manage to feel distinctive, stylish, and more mature than I'd expect from such a young brand. Certainly the definition of "one to watch," it will be exciting to see how the brand evolves and expands its lineup in the coming years.'
