Apiar Invenire v1.0 Is Created By Craftsmen Across The United Kingdom

Apiar are revolutionising the world of horology one layer at a time using innovative additive manufacturing that is paired with sustainable British engineering.

Additive Manufacturing, commonly known as metal 3D printing, has recently undergone major advances in terms of both precision and cost, thus allowing it to now be available to the consumer market. Apiar utilises aerospace standard Grade 23 Titanium, superior to the Grade 5 more commonly used in watchmaking. Its premium qualities make it ideal for aerospace, biomedical applications and of course superior quality watch cases. This results in extreme comfort on the wrist and until you look down, a pleasant surprise that you have a great looking watch there.

Celebrating Made In The UK

Apiar have a network of companies across the United Kingdom they rely on to produce the Invenire v1.0. They range from Apex Additive Technologies who manufacture the titanium cases in Ebbw Vale to Tanner Bates who make the sumptuous leather watch cases in Dartington, up to Newcastle where The Watch Toolkit finish the cases and strap buckles.

The straps are handcrafted and bespoke made from sustainable sourced  leather, suede, and TPU by The Strap Tailor in Aylesbury with the leather sourced by J&FJ Baker. The watches are assembled in Berkshire by Horologium, a workshop founded by Raphael Pfund and Raquel Palmieri. Packaging and shipping is undertaken by the Magical Mushroom Company which use natural elements and offer ‘planet positive’ packaging solutions.

Apiar Invenire v1.0 On The Wrist

Every Invenire v1.0 can be custom manufactured according to individual configurations and uniquely numbered – this is achieved using the configurator on their website. The Grade 23 Titanium case comes in three different ‘lattice’ designs, namely, Honeycomb, Gyroid and X-Lattice. The watch I’m wearing has the Gyroid design which is a very complex geometry that is excellent at handling compressive loads. 

The dial on this watch has the ‘hexagon’ design which adds depth and is made by Bedford Dials, crafted since 1840, these dials feature intricate guilloché, hand-painting, and precise pad printing, reflecting individual design. They embody Apiar’s dedication to British engineering. You can choose either Roman or Arabic numerals for the dial, which also has a date window at 3 o’clock.

Inside the Invenire v1.0 is the Swiss Made Movement – La Joux-Perret G100. La Joux-Perret is a well established Swiss movement manufacturer, who have been working with many of Switzerland’s most prestigious brands for many years. The watch is water resistant to 10 ATM (100m).

Overall, the Invenire v1.0 is an excellent timepiece which has several fascinating elements and can be customised to the prospective owner’s specifications. There will only be 160 made. Depending on your specifications will cost £2,160 (incl. VAT) and would be a great addition to any collection.
