LAB-ONE Steel 904 L
Steel is the traditional watchmaking material. It is the watchmaker’s metal of preference that was the foundation for all modern watches. What we wanted with our steel model was to go back to classic watchmaking.
A steel watchcase for an elegant model with a classic touch. One-piece dark blue metal and aramid weaving for the bracelet.

What really matters about this watch
We will not tell you here how our hybrid movement makes LAB-ONE a world first... Why dwell on the precision and complexity of the caliber, which makes LAB-ONE the only mechanical watch that does not lose its time, when we can talk about the prestige and the obvious social rank that this watch will give you?
"Knowing how LAB-ONE came to be a product of impeccable quality is not important. The shuttle shape and the exclusive comfort it brings or the multitude of parts of the dial as well with a grid that reproduces the web of space-time and that creates an impression of depth..." This is a pompous sales pitch that doesn’t tell you what’s what. What matters is that you can have this luxury watch before your neighbor (who happens to have a bigger car than you)
Finally, the fact that it lights up when you want it and that it is the only wristwatch that makes SuperLuminova™ lose face… you don't care about that, don’t you? No, what matters is that LAB-ONE will make others green with envy when they see it resting on your wrist.
As you have gathered, LAB-ONE is the timepiece that is missing from your collection. If ever your interest in learning more is piqued, the links can be found here.
Steel, the raw material of watches
Steel is the traditional material for watches. The cogs of the watch calibers are made of steel but so are the majority of watch cases. Heavier than titanium, the material is also distinguished by its more luminous and shiny gray. It is an elegant and classic material.
It's perfect for those who like to feel the weight of the watch on their wrist. The steel we use in our watches is one of the most durable among stainless steel. It is a solid companion that will accompany you far in your travels and adventures.
Because it is as important to you as it is to us, all of our timepieces are produced with the greatest care, following the Swiss watchmaking tradition, a symbol of quality, safety, authenticity, and reliability.
Midnight blue bracelet
The basic bracelet supplied is only one piece and without a clasp for maximum comfort. It is a fusion of metallic fibers and Nomex hypoallergenic light material. It slips on like a rubber band and uses shape memory. Even if it is twisted, the bracelet does not deform.
Per our sales policy, all sales are final, with no possible returns.
Frequently Asked Questions
The watch box is the charging system.
Your watch needs to be charged for a few hours every week. The best way to keep it running every day is to let your watch charge while you sleep. Simply plug in the transmitter and place your watch within 40 cm of it. Your watch will automatically take the energy needed to fill its tank. ;-)
Yes, we’re people pleasers.
Yes, just because it contains electrical components doesn't mean you can't take it for a quick swim. The waterproofness of LAB-ONE is 100m / 10Atm.
You will receive a Nomex™ strap with the watch. No leather strap for LAB-ONE. Nomex™ is an ultra-resistant fabric, used for example for firefighters' uniforms or astronauts' suits. This bracelet uses shape memory and is therefore suitable for all wrists, including yours.
Because making a good product by hand often takes time.
AK is a small business that is limited by its scale. For the sake of efficiency, we operate with limited stocks and because our watches are handcrafted, they are manufactured on demand.
Payment happens when the order is complete and the watch will be shipped as soon as the assembly is complete. You will be kept informed throughout the production phase. (For example, watches ordered at the end of 2022 will be shipped by the summer of 2023). Be careful, the longer you wait to order, the longer you will have to wait.
