The Aision AN-S01 watch comes just at the right time to usher us into the space age. For a species that will, in roughly a decade, populate another planet, Aision’s watch is time-appropriate. Designed using the vast bank of science fiction as its inspiration source, the AN-S01 models itself on the design of a UFO, with a style that’s more futuristic than traditional… perfectly fitting for a species that will soon be interstellar!
The AN-S01 deviates from the regular watch-face design, opting for concentric rotating discs that align to tell the time. This formation is punctuated by a metal frame that sits in front of the watch, almost like an exoskeleton, giving the watch its aggressively future-forward appeal. A circular case-design does a hat-tip to the most popular perception of a circular UFO, and a highly curved Hesalite glass gives the watch an incredible amount of depth, while also accentuating the UFO-esque shape of the overall body, making the AN-S01 look like it was co-designed by humans and extraterrestrials alike.
Sitting underneath the Hesalite glass, the stainless steel exoskeleton, and the rotating lume-coated dials is a Miyota caliber 82S0 movement, a part of the 8215/821A family, with a 21-jewel movement that beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour. Encased in a 316L steel case with a watertight construction, the watch’s insides are waterproof up to 30 meters. The watch also sports leather straps, but in keeping with its theme of space, comes with a white stripe running down the center of each strap… a detail that, when wrapped around your hand, almost looks like the teleporter beam shooting out from under the UFO-shaped watch!

The Aision AN-S01 automatic watches are inspired by space and UFO. It deviates from the regular watch-face design, opting for concentric rotating discs that align to tell the time.
“SPACE” is the theme of design and the designer has skillfully added a hemisphere – dome-shaped – glass to greatly enhance the design of the dial.
Lume on the dial makes the time easy to read in the dark.
There are two main parts to the dial – the first one is the metal skeleton, which is inspired by the streamline of the wheel. The second part is the disc hands.
The team has designed custom fonts for the dial.
The Miyota caliber 82S0 is from the 8215/821A family but offers a skeletonized dial design. Miyota claims that the caliber 82S0 offers accuracy of -20 ~ +40 seconds per day. This is measured within 10-60 minutes from a full wind via the crown.
There is also a gilt (gold tone) version available.
The watch straps are made from genuine leather and there are two options.
