Hi All,
My name is Nelson. I’m a member of the Alvieri watches team. Alvieri was built around three fundamental values: artistic, amazing quality, and affordable. Our dream is to create a design which is timeless and to create timepieces with a dial that features three-dimensional world.The three dimensional design of our watch is inspired by sculptures in Firenze. Every part of our watch is designed to represent three-dimensional depth in a harmonious look.
I am very pleased to share the design and the specifications of our first collection with you.

The logo design

The Alvieri logo is a crucial part of our identity. Our logo consists of interlocking infinity symbols forming a quadruple ‘a’. The first letter ‘a’ in the logo stands for Alvieri. The other three ‘a’ letters are meant to exhibit the core values which Alvieri stands for. These are: artistico (artistic design), altaqualita (amazing quality), and abbordabile (affordable luxury). These four ‘a’ are drawn as a unity to depict these three values are integral parts of Alvieri. The Infinity shapes are drawn with different stroke thicknesses, pointing to the importance of depth in our three-dimensional design. These symbols for infinity are depicted in such a beautiful way to portray the timeless design and luxury of our watch.

The watch design
Here I'll just show some images of our watch design. You can find more on our instagram@alvieriwatches(our website is still in progress).

If you are interested in following the progress of our design, you can follow us on Instagram@alvieriwatches(our website is still in progress).

Description
With a guilloche center portion which is surrounded by Roman numeral markers on a convex track, the dial is very lively, displaying beautiful curves. The beauty of the dial is also perfectly complemented by our signature hollow arrow hands. The concave lugs are somewhat unique and in complete harmony with the simple round case. The unique sculpted lugs give the overall design a bit more character.

I really like the concept of the three-dimensional watch. The convex hour track makes the dial appear more lively for sure. In my opinion, the watch is very well designed, not plain nor over-design. It looks so elegant and classy. The hollow arrow hands also balance the overall look of the dial. I can see that your team have paid tremendous attentions for designing the detail. For the specifications, I'm sure that sapphire crystal, Italian genuine leather, and Ronda movement are already the best option you can get for your affordable approach. The 40mm diameter and 9,6mm of case thickness are universal size for everyone. So I think your team have done a great job for choosing both the design and the specifications. I'll follow your journey on Instagram for sure. Good luck with your project :)

I like the logo and the watches, solid dress watches. Maybe the skeletonised hands seem a little bit flimsy to the robust dial and case... for me at least.

Thank you for your feedback GI. Perhaps you are right about the hands. We will consider to revise the design.

Did someone say DeBethune homage?

Love the design but I have a few execution changes purely based on my subjective taste.

Blue hands on white face. Not my favorite combo. I prefer a monochromatic look in general on any watch but especially with dress. Black or silver hands would work better.

Rose gold always works better with black than white (IMO). 2nd option with black face and rose gold hands/dial markers would look awesome.

Based on the above the 3rd option is perfect.

Why do you not like blue hands?

While I know making hands a different color it makes them stand out for readability, I tipped it when I said I prefer a monochromatic look for dress watches in general, which is why I think the black faced one is perfect, the hands match the numeral indices.

Hello there. I really like the looks of this watch. But, I agree with others who have suggested changing it a bit more from the DeBethune. While I agree with willy that a simple two color watch is more satisfying, I still love blued hands on a watch. Some random suggestions. Blued numbers (and not as bold) instead of the black. Seeing that you are going with quartz instead of mechanical, you might consider lume. I would suggest lume at the hour markers and fill in the arrow spaces of the hands with lume... This will take away from the elegance of the watch... but it would help differentiate you from the DeBethune. Good luck with this.

Are you able to put the texture on the convex ring instead of the central disc? Or perhaps a polished finish instead of the matt finish on the convex? I reckon that'd make it "pop" even more.
Looks awesome :)
