Dievas Avant Garde Prototype(AGP) is limited to 50 pieces worldwide. Each watch is individually engraved on the caseback with its unique serial number.

Dievas AGP's case, crown, tube, lugs, screws and buckle is treated by Plasma Assisted  Chemical Vapour Deposition(PACVD) with a special material called Diamond Like Carbon(DLC). This special treatment is done specially for Dievas by a German company who specialize in the treatment for Formula One cars. The PACVD-DLC treated Dievas AGP has a hardness of 2400 Vickers (ISO 14577) which is about 17 times the hardness of 316L stainless steel. PACVD-DLC is also highly resistant to chemical reaction.

The domed sapphire crystal is anti-reflective coated. The crown system is also treated with PACVD-DLC. Low coefficient of friction properties of PACVD-DLC means the crown system will last longer.

Dievas AGP is powered by a Swiss Made Unitas 6497 mechanical movement....
