J-Axis iXa Skeleton DG733

It's party day again today so I chose another smart looking model.

This watch is another of the J-Axis range watches that I've been blogging for a while now. This model is one of the surprises, as the J-Axis watches aren't a high price brand, but this model is a high quality feeling mechanical watch.

It is a model DG733, with this colour (green) being the DG733-GR. It is a 3 hand dial design powered by a hand-wind mechanical movement. The design is a partial skeleton with a large round window on the dial covering the centre towards the 9 o'clock position. The back is also clear so you get a good view of the mechanism from behind, and can see straight through the watch where the balance wheel is. The dial is green with hour markers for all except the 3 o'clock where there is a big number. The glass is shaped with the flat face having 12 edges angling back into the body. The design is completed with a thick padded brown leather strap.

The J-Axis watches are produced by the Japanese company Sun Flame Co and first came out in 1987. They release watches in 6 series, and this is one of the D Series. This also has the iXa designation which has been on a few different watches, but I don't know what it really means.

This model is still available from the Sun Flame website, and even though it is a mechanical skeleton watch, it is only ¥3,990!
