Aragon Parma SS

on Sat Aug 26 2017, 18:30
Aragon Parma SS


Specs ( Taken from Aragon Website )

Movement SII VH31 Sweep Second Quartz

Case Measurement 48mm

Case Thickness 17mm

Crystal Hardened Mineral

Crown Position 3 o’clock Screw down crown

Lug Width 24mm

Water Resistant 200m (660FT)

Weight 10.7oz


The Japanese SII VH31 movement has a unique design to it as in rather than a normal quartz movement where the second hand moves every second the VH31 has a Centre second hand that moves in ¼  second increments, resembles mechanical movements . You can understand more on this movement by watching the following video



Aragon Watches are an American based company and it is my belief that their CEO and designer Wing Liang was also the founder and creator of Android watches .

Aragon Watches first came to my attention when a couple of members on here bought the Divemaster Automatic I have being following their website ever since.

After wearing this watch for quite some time I can say it is heavy on the wrist so you certainly know you are wearing it and as I sometimes wear a watch on my right wrist I find the crown can dig into my wrist when I use my wheelchair but these little niggles do not bother me as it is such a great looking watch it is big bold and chunky and ticks all the features in a watch for me .

A few family members have held this watch and they all say it is heavy and BIG but they have all agreed on one thing that in the flesh it is a good watch .

Here are some photos and also a couple of videos one of which I have slowed down to make the ¼ second movement more visible .

Thanks for reading .

Very interesting write up & am glad that you are pleased with your latest purchase.

I think it looks great as well as being a solid well built watch. It's fascinating watching the movement of the second hand, I've never seen that before on a Quartz watch.

With regards to it digging into the wrist a little would it help to wear the watch on the other wrist when in the wheelchair? I understand it may not be either practical or comfortable on the other wrist but just a thought.

I have the same problem if I wear on my left wrist as I do not like a tight fit it tends to drop slightly and then dig into my hand . Always an excuse to buy an electric wheelchair lol! lol!
