Cornavin watches

The genuine Swiss Made

Founded in Geneva,  Cornavin is one of the brands of Swiss Made watches with the most exclusive designs and with the highest quality and precision in the market. Its origin dates back to the 1920s, taking its name from one of the old districts of the Swiss city. In the 50s and 60s it began to become more popular thanks to the manufacture of fine mechanical watches, but especially for being the first Swiss brand to present the big date. Since then, the Swiss manufacture is known for producing very good mechanical watches with a strong quality-price ratio.

Today,  Cornavin reflects the careful craftsmanship of its Swiss watchmakers. Abundant in innovation, technical perfection and individuality, it has continuously striven for the art of perfection, making all its models a representation of Swiss precision and quality combined with exclusive designs and lasting satisfaction for its customers.  To ensure traditional Swiss precision and high standards, each Cornavin goes through a strict quality control process to ensure customer satisfaction.

They have models of all styles and all of them assembled by hand in Switzerland: classic, sporty or elegant, bringing the world of watchmaking closer to different types of men. Their dials are large, ranging from 41 to  44 mm in diameter and have straps made of different materials:stainless steel,  leather,  rubber,  Milanese mesh or  PVD coated, but always with materials manufactured in Switzerland carefully chosen and of the highest quality.

Cornavin has four collections that reflect the soul and essence of the brand, with designs in which the sphere makes the difference:  Downtown,  Downtown 3H,  Downtown Sport and  Big-Date.


Cornavin Downtown

Inspired by the metropolis of Geneva, Cornavin's  Downtown collection has been carefully created by focusing on the finest details. Its sturdy octagonal-shaped case is adorned with 8 screws on the bezel. All its models are equipped with 44mm stainless steel octagonal cases, sapphire glass, bottoms and screwed crowns.

Cornavin Downtown 3-H

The watches of the  Downtown 3H collection are easily recognizable. Its design is based on the iconic octagonal Cornavin case but with a smaller size: 41 mm. Each piece of the collection is equipped with sapphire crystal and is water resistant up to 5 ATM.

Citizen Promaster NY0071-81E

As a large fan of dive watches, this mechanical promaster variant in titanium, does not disappoint. Exceptionally light, form, fit and function, absolutely fantastic. Much better attention to detail ( indices and rotating bezel alignment with chapter ring) than some Seiko comparable models.
Seemingly on paper a large watch, wears very well, not conspicuous at all in my 5 Ft 7 inch opinion. Great lime, long lasting and running at constant +10 seconds a day.
Definitely recommend this watch and the excellent customer experience of Iguana Sell.

Visconti Van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows Set

A very nice fountain pen feels very nice in the hand, comes well presented with a bottle of ink to start you off. I was kept fully informed of the progress of my order and as such I have ordered a second fountain pen.

Avi-8 P51 Mustang

This is my 2nd watch purchase from Iguana Sell. Due to unfortunate circumstances beyound Iguana Sells hands, I was kept in contact regarding the delivery of my P51 Mustang watch. Heavy snow as well as teething problems due to Brexit delayed delivery, but I have become quite patient over the past few months. The watch is amazing Avi-8 have surpassed themselves. I love the aviation theme previously buying their automatic Spitfire watch.

AVI-8 Lancaster Bomber Cocktip Edition Quartz Watch, Black, 43 mm, AV-4067-02
Should it not be cockpit edition?

It is a lovely clear simple classic quality watch. Which is s joy to wear with s nice long strap.

A beautiful pen but it does show ink colour through the barrel

I’d been intending to get an Aurora Optima with stub nib for some time but couldn’t decide on a colour. I knew it would probably be a limited edition ......... when this one popped up on the Winter Sale it seemed as though fate had made the decision for me and in the main I’ve got no regrets.

The pen is smaller and lighter than many of the others I own but it’s well balanced in the hand. The stub nib gives a finer line than other higher-end 1.3mm gold stubs in my collection and can be very slightly scratchy on some (good) papers. I’m still looking for the perfect ink to pair with it, though my feeling is that with further use the nib should settle down nicely, since it generally flows well.

The pen isn’t quite perfect for me yet but I’m happy to own it and to spend a bit more time getting used to it. I’ve deducted one star from the rating because of the way dark ink colours show through the barrel. Service from Iguana Sell was excellent, with good communication and fast delivery despite the pandemic.
