Aragon Superjet VK73 Chronograph 50mm

Updated: Aug 19, 2021

Aragon

Since the birth of the company in 1991, Wing Liang, lead designer and CEO of ARAGON WATCHES USA, has been driven by a constant desire to meet the expectations of the watch loving community. Liang has a unique talent of crafting timepieces that are visually and aesthetically astounding.

With a degree in International Business from Florida Atlantic University under his belt and an intangible love of a fine time pieces, Wing joined forces with his eldest sibling Angela, to create a company that would challenge traditional timepiece making.

Their wish to create a contemporary line that was affordable to every watch connoisseur was set in motion with their motto: ‘Building into the future by respecting our past.’

A slogan the company has stayed true to from its founding.

Wing, as the sole designer, drew inspiration from music, cars, movies and machines and often his earlier pieces entailed fun and funky twists. (Attracting the likes of sci-fi movie makers with his ‘Alien’ design and a cult underground following with timepieces such as the ‘HYDRO’)

As the company has matured, so has Liang’s designs and use of materials, which are comparable to that of any leading luxury timepiece company. His motivation remains unchanged however, to incorporate his real love of fine watch designs, his creations today lean more towards building specific case designs to house select Swiss and Japanese movements.(However the twists are still evident keeping the brand fresh and exciting) And his use of high quality materials, such as ceramic and tungsten, have watch enthusiasts salivating for more.

It is very rare to see such a young company mature so quickly. However from day one Wing and Angela have poured their heart and soul into making Aragon the timepiece powerhouse it is today and have always stayed true to their beliefs of creating modern, luxury designs that are accessible to everyone. Wings conventional, unisex designs are constantly featured in the media and continue to receive international acclaim.

 

First Impressions

The unboxing of the watch:

The initial overview:

This is the 5th Aragon that is in my collection, so I would have to say that I have a bias when it comes to Aragon watches. This is the first SII VK73 Quartz movement that I have in my Aragon collection, and it is a very stable and clean movement. The Aragon Superjet VK73 timepiece is awesome, the Sunray Blue dial will grab your attention from across the room, the blue bezel with the polished trim (which houses the Tachymeter Scale) adds to the aesthetics of the watch - then when you look at the side of the bezel, the 5's (i.e. 5, 15 25) are engraved - what a cool detail to incorporate. The Aragon Superjet VK73 has good weight and as with all of my Aragon's the machine work is phenomenal. The attention to all of the smallest of details, and the simplicity of use of the Superjet VK73 makes it one of my favorites from Aragon.

The fit:

As with the other Aragon's in my collection, the fit is great - the watch fits my larger wrist very comfortably. With that, the Superjet VK73 can be worn with a suit, yes - even with the silicone strap, as it is a super clean look, then you can go to the gym and for a night out on the town without ever having to think about changing you watch to fit into the environment. Great daily wear, it is a must have for any collection, and if you only need to have one versatile timepiece - and want a conversation starter - then I would recommend the Aragon Superjet VK73. This is an exquisite timepiece, it is comparable to any mainstream watch on the market.
